Recruitment to policy committees Could you help shape MA policy? 12 June 2019 The MA is inviting members who are sitting magistrates to apply to join one of our policy committees and play a key role in the MA’s policy work. The MA's policy committees are at the heart of the MA’s work to ensure that magistrates play a leading role in the national policy-making process. They support the development of MA policy positions and inform our engagement with key stakeholders and our responses to consultations and calls for evidence from parliamentary select committees or other inquiries. We are looking for members to sit on our policy committees so if you would like to contribute to our work and influence national legislative and policy decisions please consider applying! There are no vacancies on the Family Court Committee this year but the other three committees are recruiting: - The Adult Court Committee, which is looking for three new members - The Training Committee, which is looking for at least one new member - The Youth Court Committee, which is looking for one new member Members who want to apply to join a policy committee should complete and submit an application form, which is available - along with a person specification - here. Members of policy committees must be sitting magistrates. The deadline to submit an application is 6 September 2019. Successful candidates will be appointed at this year's AGM on 19 October 2019.
