The Museums Association (MA) is seeking a Member Representative for the West Midlands to help keep the MA in touch with what is happening on the ground and communicate to and for the MA.

The qualities required to be a representative include a strong understanding of MA policies, particularly Museums Change Lives, good communication skills, including the ability to speak at events, the ability and willingness to take time out to attend meetings, the ability to communicate with members, and the skills to report feedback concisely and objectively.

“This is a great opportunity for someone proactive who wants to get involved in influencing the MA’s policy and supporting the sector,” said Sophie Lawson, the MA’s membership officer. “We welcome applications from MA members at all stages of their career who want to make a difference to the future of museums, galleries and heritage sites in their area.”

The role is for a period of three years and is unpaid, but representatives will receive travel expenses and a free place at the MA Annual Conference and Exhibition. Applicants must be current individual members and must be prepared to devote a minimum of five working days per year to the role.

The closing date for applications is 19 June.
