We have several committees and working groups that report to our board.
Our nations committee is made up of four of our trustees, one from each nation of the UK. The committee monitors and develops our nations policy and works with our management team on our expertise, effectiveness and responsiveness in all four nations.
Our ethics committee upholds the principles of the Code of Ethics for Museums and oversees its operation. The committee is independent and accountable to our members, the sector, and the public through our board. We recruit and select the committee and its chair is appointed by our board.
Decolonisation Guidance Working Group
In 2019 we established a decolonisation guidance working group to produce guidance for the sector on how to bring decolonial practice into all areas of museum practice in the UK. The group was established as a sub-group of our ethics committee following the publication of our Empowering Collections report. The group consists of our members and is chaired by one of our trustees.
