PLSA governance review

Changes to PLSA governance

In October 2016 we decided that, a year after renaming the Association to reflect the changing world of retirement savings, we should make sure we continue to have the right structure in place to run the PLSA effectively and make policy that works for our members. Since then, members of the PLSA’s Board and executive have been looking at alternative models for governance and proposed a series of changes.

The first of these was to introduce new Articles of Association, which was approved by members at our AGM on 20 October 2017.


From October 2017 to January 2018 we consulted members on two further proposals that we hope to introduce in October 2018:

  • Create a new Policy Board and associated selection process to provide strategic oversight of our policy and advocacy work.
  • Change the composition and appointment process of the Board to give us access to a more diverse range of skills and increase Board stability.

New Rules

Following members’ broad support for the proposals, we’re now consulting members on the Rules that will govern the Policy Board and the Board of the PLSA.
