Maggie Rodger elected AMNT co-chair

The Association of Member Nominated Trustees (AMNT) has announced the election of Maggie Rodger to the the role of co-chair, effective immediately.

Rodger will co-chair the association alongside Janice Turner, following David Weeks' decision to stand down from the position due to health concerns.

Whilst Turner has been serving as sole chair in the interim period, Rodger has agreed to take up the role on an interim basis to take the organisation to the next annual general meeting in 2022.

She has been a member nominated trustee (MNT) of the Church of England Pensions Board since 2016, and is an accountant by profession, having previously worked for the Church Commissioners in a variety of administrative and financial roles over a 22-year period, before becoming the management accountant to the Archbishops Council in 1999.

Following this, she served as finance director of St Luke's Hospice and as a MNT and director of TPT retirement solutions.

Commenting on her appointment, she stated: “I am delighted to have been elected to the position of co-chair of the AMNT. I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure that the voice of the member continues to be heard.

“The role of a MNT remains important and relevant. It is vital that MNTs, alongside their fellow trustees, are able to ask the right questions of advisors as we need to make sure that the professionals are not getting so caught up in their own world that they are forgetting what is really important to members.

“We need to ask ourselves, do I have enough information to really understand what the professionals are recommending? After all, we are the guardians of our members’ interests and must ensure that all decisions taken put their welfare right at the centre of the discussion.”

Turner added: “I am looking forward to working alongside Maggie. Her experience as an MNT and as a former finance director will help us continue to provide a vital and independent voice in pensions governance.

"Her approach, which asks trustees to question themselves and their advisors, will undoubtedly help in continuing to raise the standards of trusteeship.”
