The Board

At our AGM this year, our Principal Voting and Voting members voted in changes to the way we are governed. Most of the changes affect the Members’ Council (previously the PRS Board). 

The Board (previously known as the Executive Board) will largely remain the same, apart from the name change. Members of the Board will be drawn from the Members’ Council and each term of office will last three years, which has a limit of three terms in total.

If you want to find out more about these changes to how we’re governed, visit our governance webpage.

The Board sets the strategy and supervises the operations of PRS for Music. This Board meets regularly throughout the year and is supported by its own Articles of Association.

The Board is made up of:

  • four publisher directors
  • four writer directors
  • four external directors (including the Chair)
  • the Council Chair 
  • an executive director (our CEO).

At the end of each term members of the Board need to retire, but can put themselves forward for re-appointment. 

The Board is supported by committees that are made up of director members from the Board and the Council and some of the committees have representation from the MCPS Board. They meet regularly throughout the year.
