Advisory Board

The Advisory Board provides advice to the Trustees and staff, helping inform understanding and decision making especially in relation to the media, religious and belief communities, directors of communications, and experts and academics. Its role is to provide a sounding board for RMC’s strategy, reflect on its work and impact, make recommendations as to how better to engage and influence key stakeholders, review and add to the network of commentators and trainers used by the RMC and generally promote the work and value of the RMC as advocates for the organisation.
