Nations Committee - Museums Association

Nations Committee

Our nations committee monitors and develops our Nations Policy and recommends any changes to our board.

It assists our management team in developing credible expertise on the specific issues in each nation and in increasing our effectiveness and responsiveness in all four nations.

The committee also works with us to ensure that there is an equitable distribution of our resources throughout the UK and to increase the effectiveness and responsiveness of our advocacy work in each nation.

The nations committee meets at least three times a year and consists of four trustees appointed by the board, and from each of the four nations of the UK.
