The President of the association provides overall and highly visible leadership for the Association.

The President and his/her Vice-Presidents are at the forefront of publicising the work at the Association both nationally and internationally.

Our President for 2018/2019 is Karen Grave

Karen has worked in HR and OD in public and private sectors in a career spanning more years than she cares to remember.  She is passionate about public services, believing that well run public services are critical to how well our society runs.  For her, workforce is at the heart of everything public servants do.  Whilst technology, policy and processes have a huge role to play, none of this matters without engaged, committed, passionate and productive workforces.  She is committed during her term to continuing with ongoing PPMA work to raise and develop our collective professional voice so that every decision taken about the what, why and how of public services harness the inherent passion, creativity, innovation and commitment of the broader public service workforce.

Karen’s term ends in April 2019.
