MA appoints new member representatives

14 new reps make a total of 17 across the UK's nations and regions

The Museums Association (MA) has appointed 14 member representatives, making a total of 17 across the UK.

Representatives play a vital role in the MA’s engagement with its members. They represent the MA to its members and to local organisations and contacts, and represent members’ views to the MA, providing vital feedback.

They also help to keep members in the local area up-to-date with MA policies and activities, help to organise Members' Meetings and other informal meetings, promote MA membership, and communicate through social media and the website.

The roles are for a period of three years, and representatives are all individual members of the MA.

Sharon Heal, the MA's director, says: "Member representatives play a vital role. As a campaigning membership organisation we want to get a grassroots view of the issues and what our members need from us, and the representatives are instrumental in helping us understand this so that we can make the case to politicians and stakeholders.

"We are delighted to welcome an incredibly talented and diverse new cohort of representatives, and look forward to working closely with them to realise the MA's work across the UK's nations and regions."
