Full Membership

Full membership costs £116 per year and runs from the 1st July to 30 June.

Any members joining after 1st January will receive a discount for the first year.

For further details on the discounted rates please contact: Kim McInery, Assistant Treasurer at finance@ppma.org.uk

Full Membership of the Association is open to individuals employed in HR or OD roles within the UK public services within England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. The PPMA recognises that professionals working in these countries may also be members of other professional organisations or societies, such as the SPDS, but this does not inhibit or restrict full membership of the PPMA.

Full membership is an individual entitlement and does not enable membership benefits to be extended beyond the member concerned.

Full members are entitled to vote on matters of substance at the Annual General Meeting, the election of National/Principal and Regional Officers, as well as being eligible to stand for election in such roles. Full Membership of the Association permits attendance at or access to any conferences, seminars, products or services that the Association produces or sponsors.

If a member ceases to hold office under the above categories, Full membership of the Association ceases but an application can be made to change to Associate membership whichever is appropriate for the change of circumstances.
