The Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) is calling for nominations for the position of Chair of its new Policy Board. The creation of a PLSA Policy Board was one of the proposed changes announced at the PLSA’s Annual Conference in October 2017 and upon which the association has since consulted. It will be introduced in autumn 2018.
The Policy Board will take strategic oversight of the PLSA’s policy work programme, making sure it supports the PLSA’s purpose and strategic vision. As part of their role, the new Chair will represent the PLSA’s membership in policy making and provide leadership in bringing a diverse range of members together behind common policy goals.
Julian Mund, Chief Executive of the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association, commented:
“Membership organisations need to evolve to remain relevant and we are creating the Policy Board to ensure our members voices remain clearly heard in a fast moving policy environment. The appointment of its Chair will be a significant milestone in its development.
“The role of PLSA Policy Board Chair will provide the right person with the opportunity to shape the future of pensions and retirement income in this country and we are looking for candidates who can represent our broad membership and have a passion for helping people achieve a better income in retirement”.
The call for nominations opens today (1 March 2018) and will close on 2 April 2018. The interview process will take place in April. It is expected the Policy Board Chair will serve an initial term of three years and may serve a second term of up to three years by agreement with the PLSA Board. Interested parties are encouraged to refer to the position profile and selection framework on the PLSA website (click here).
