Our Vice Presidents

Following our restructure in 2018, we are delighted to say that we increased the number of Vice Presidents for the association to 3.  This increase gives us:

  • Additional capacity and capability in our Strategic Management Board (SMB)
  • Greater resilience within SMB
  • An opportunity to build closer relationships with officers in our MOU partners, particularly with HPMA and UHR
  • Real focus, so that we can ensure the PPMA membership offering is holistic and delivered effectively across our PPMA Board.

Scope of the Vice President roles

Our VP Regions: This role supports our PPMA Regional Chairs and ensures we build thriving regional networks that deliver on our national priorities, as well as being sensitive to the needs of local members.

Our VP Strategic Themes: This role leads 7 of our strategic themes.  These themes are the areas of HR & OD practice that are most important in developing our community of professionals – and building and sustaining high performing organisations.

Our VP Talent & Membership: This role is responsible for leading our Let’s Talk: You Talent Management programme and supporting our growing membership community.

Our new structure pages will be going live at the end of July.  Come back for more information then.

The Vice President’s Key Responsibilities

In general, each Vice President’s key responsibilities are as follows:

(i) to provide support to the President in providing highly visible leadership for the Association and to further the vision, values and objectives of the Association.

(ii) To ensure, together with the President and other Board members that the work of the association is undertaken according to our values.

(iii) To support the President in maintaining our existing relationships and building new relationships with partners, sponsors and other key stakeholders.

Other individual responsibilities are focused on the scope of each role.  For example the Vice President: Regions is responsible for regional liaison and familiarisation with regional issues and ensuring that these are taken into account nationally, where appropriate.



The Public Services People Managers Association (PPMA) is the first choice association for people professionals in public services.

For more than 40 years we have been a collective voice for a highly qualified, passionate, committed and diverse public services Human Resources (HR) and Organisation Development (OD) community. We play a critical role in influencing key decision-makers and stakeholders involved in people management and workforce issues.


Our Regions

Our Regions

Our Regions are the lifeblood of the PPMA.

They provide the opportunity for our members to meet, share, exchange and learn from each other and their organisations.

The aim within each region is to provide a meeting, whether real or virtual, on a variety of HR and OD subject matters. These meetings give our members an opportunity to hear about latest issues, research, or showcase of work happening in the HR/OD world.
