Exciting Opportunities! Volunteer for the PSA and Make a Difference

15th May 2023 | By Joanne Lockwood

As our association continues to grow and evolve, we’re looking for dedicated and enthusiastic individuals to join our team in three key roles:

  • Ethics and Safeguarding Officer – reporting into Jackie Handy, our DE&I Director on the Board.
  • Marketing Director – who will initially come in and shadow our existing Marketing Director, Chantal Cornelius, before taking over the role in October, when Chantal steps up to be National President.
  • Our NEW Virtual Region President – reporting into our Director of Regions, Alastair Greener.

These roles will be crucial in shaping the future of our association, and we need your skills, passion, and commitment to help us continue to thrive.

To help you better understand each role, we’ve prepared short videos featuring insights from current board members and officers. These videos and supporting social media content will be available on our website and social media channels, so be sure to check them out and share them within your networks.

Now, let me give you a brief overview of each role:

As the Ethics and Safeguarding Officer, you will be responsible for ensuring that our association operates ethically and maintains a safe environment for all members. You’ll handle any issues that arise, maintain our policies and guidelines, and ensure everyone feels included, supported and protected.


As Marketing Director, you will focus on promoting the PSA brand, attracting new members, and enhancing our online presence. In addition, you’ll work closely with the Board to develop a marketing strategy and oversee its implementation.


And finally, as the Virtual Region President, you’ll lead the charge in creating a virtual space for members who may not be able to attend physical events. You’ll be responsible for coordinating online events, facilitating connections, and ensuring all members can access the support and resources they need.


Taking on a volunteer role within the PSA as a Director or as an Officer is an incredible opportunity to contribute to the growth and development of our association. Not only will you be making a positive impact on the professional speaking community, but you’ll also have the chance to develop your leadership skills and expand your network.

If you’re interested in applying for any of these roles, please [follow this link]. We ask you to complete a short application process, including a brief statement outlining your interest and relevant experience.

We look forward to receiving your applications and working together to make the PSA even stronger. Thank you!

Kind Regards,

Joanne Lockwood
Chair, PSA UK&I.
