Council & UKPIA Team

Responsibility for setting UKPIA’s position on policy matters lies with its Council, whose officers are appointed by the member companies. A number of committees, working groups and task and finish groups, covering the main policy areas and operations of the industry, provide a vehicle for specialist engagement across the industry and competent authorities. Membership is drawn from employees of the member companies.

UKPIA’s executive team comprises seven subject matter experts who anticipate, advocate and educate on behalf of the membership, implementing the strategy agreed by the UKPIA council.
