Non-States Members


A new States isn’t just about new Deputies. All of the members of the public who sit as Non-States Members on various committees also change.

Non-States Members bring external expertise and perspective to a States committee. It’s a big role – you’ll be reading and analysing the papers beforehand and going to all of the committee meetings, alongside the members who are Deputies.

You’ll contribute to discussions but you won’t vote on decisions. It’s not a salaried job but it’s not purely voluntary either – payment is £2,154 per year.

Currently five committees have asked people interested in being a Non-Voting Member to get in touch. They are listed below with links to the relevant media releases. Or you can read all the media releases on this page by scrolling to the bottom.
