Policy Committees

Policy Committees


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.
