Heledd Fychan, Alex Bird, and Dhikshana Pering began their term on 1 April
The Museums Association’s (MA) members elected three people to the board, beginning 1 April.

They are Dhikshana Pering, the manager of young people’s programmes at the London Transport Museum; Heledd Fychan, the corporate affairs and advocacy manager for Amgueddfa Cymru (National Museum Wales); and Alex Bird, the sector development officer for Museum Development North West.

Pering said: “I started my career in the museum and gallery sector in 2006, and have been lucky to work and build skills such as delivering, developing, managing and leading learning teams to success.”

Fychan said: “At a time when museums are being pitted against health, education and social services, it is crucial that we are able to articulate that museums play a crucial role in society.”

Bird said: “My aim is to bring intelligence about the needs of the sector from frontline staff through to trustee with a particular focus on training and development.”
