Lay members bring a new dimension to your professional body’s work, contributing their expertise and representing the public’s perspective.
In this video, we meet Andy Burman, CEO of the British Dietetic Association. Andy sheds some light on the critical importance of lay members to professional bodies, explaining the benefits of having an independent professional sitting on your board, as well as sharing information on how the BDA works with its lay members. He also tackles lay member recruitment, offering practical guidance and exploring what skills and qualities are required of the ideal lay member.
