PRS board 

PRS is owned and governed by its songwriter, composer and publisher members. The respective rights, duties and obligations of PRS and its members are set out in the Society’s Memorandum and Articles of Association and the Rules and Regulations.

The PRS Board consists of 25 directors led by a Chairman and two Deputy Chairmen (one writer and one publisher) who are elected by the Board from among the directors. The Board comprises:

  • 11 writer directors and 11 publisher directors (elected by the Society’s full and associate members) who represent a broad cross-section of interests and genres;
  • Two external directors who bring valuable expertise from outside the music industry; and
  • One executive director (the Chief Executive Officer).
