Become a board member
The AMA board comprises of 10 members and we are now holding an election for several of these places.
Over the last few years the AMA has launched a number of initiatives designed to empower the sector to drive real change to benefit organisations and their audiences e.g. Future Proof Museums, Audience Diversity Academy, Digital Marketing Academy, Building Resilience, Small Scale Development Programme.
We have recently released our 360 Diversity Strategy and this process is an opportunity for us to take this forward. We are particularly keen to hear from people who can help us to achieve the ambitions laid out in this strategy.
Candidates will need to have the organisational development skills required to act as effective board members e.g. skills and experience in financial strategy, leadership, and business planning.
