I’m Gordon McFarlane, and I’m delighted to have joined the PPMA Board as a vice president. I’ve worked in HR for about 25 years and have experience of working in a number of different councils around the country. I’m currently an Assistant Director in Leicestershire County Council, and have been there for nearly 8 years. I’ve also been an active member of the County Council Heads of HR network with the PPMA since joining Leicestershire.

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.
