Policy Leads

If you decide to join PPMA, we hope you will contribute your ideas to one or more of our themed policy lead areas. Each theme is led by a lead policy officer whose responsibilities include:

  • To create an effective community of practice and/or network of members to support the delivery of the policy theme, working with other professional bodies and organisations involved with HR/OD best practice and public services, as appropriate.

  • To work with the Policy Board to develop PPMA policy, products and services for the benefit of the PPMA membership and reflecting the views of the PPMA membership.

  • To develop and prepare responses to consultation exercises on behalf of the Association.
