Regional Committees (RCs) are a crucial part of the day-to-day management of the union at a grassroots level. The London Regional Committee is democratically elected, and members usually meet four times per year, some online, some in person. 

Current London RC members

London Regional Commitee members are Simon Minshall, Max Rowlands, Chrissie Ranson-Thompson, Nixon Rosembert, Mike Horne, Hailey Willington, Allan Cox, Luke Strevens, Hugh Burns, Emiliano Bonanomi, Peggy-Ann Fraser, Sandra-Mae  Lux, Nick Laughlin, Ursula Paludan, Monberg, Kit Packham, Fiona Branson, Catherine Fox.

What do London RC members do?

The role of RC members is collectively to:

  • Oversee the London Region’s activity in all areas of the music industry and on all industrial issues
  • Oversee the management of London Regional budgets and operations
  • Assist in the recruitment and retention of members
  • Assist in the organisation of members
  • Maintain communication between members and the union

Hear Nixon sharing his experiences about being an RC member

Like Nixon in London, RC members get involved in supporting venues under threat, protecting music in theatres, and campaigning for practical things to help you build your career – from fair pay to parking to the fair implementation of low emission zones.
