Amy Rowlinson

Professional Member

Being part of the PSA has been the most incredible experience. It has brought me so much richness of knowledge. It’s been inclusive in nature and diverse in thought and industry, with access to a huge breadth of expertise. My mission as a Regional President was to share what I've got from the PSA, professionally and personally. Who do you know who could benefit from being a member of this organisation? Reach out to them today and welcome them in.

Kunle Orankan

Associate Member

As a new member it feels like home for me to be at the PSA. I had such a warm welcome at my local regional event, got outstanding value for my time and had a blast with the people who attended.

Bryony Thomas

PSA Fellow

The PSA is an amazing organisation to be part of. I count it amongst my one of my safest spaces, where I go for support, for learning and for people who I know will help to rise me up. It's an organisation that has helped me in so many ways, both personally and professionally. Come along to one of the regional events or one of the conferences. I know you won’t regret it. I promise you will meet some wonderful people within the association.

Stephen Whitton

Professional Member

I've been member of the PSA for a number of years and it's really in the last couple of years that everything has come to life for me. I put that down to the PSA being inclusive, being diverse and being equal. I've never worked with such a diverse group of people from all walks of life, which is refreshing. They're very inclusive and very welcoming. We're all equal.
