The PLSA's Policy Board is supported by four Policy Committees it can delegate work to and seek advice from. The committees are aligned to the current regulatory regimes: Defined Benefit, Local Authority, Defined Contribution and Master Trust pensions.
Each committee meets three times a year and is chaired by a Policy Board representative. In appointing committee members we seek subject expertise, representation from key membership groups and, to a lesser extent, some experience of involvement with PLSA policy work.
