As a membership body with collective knowledge on public service media we are from time to time able to use this information to make representations on behalf of our members

This may include providing background information in regard to transition from public service broadcasting to media organisations. We also provide evidence for government reviews on public service broadcasting. As the Public Media Alliance we aim to increase our work and activities in this area.
