With appreciation for all our member management teams

Following my arrival as UKSPA Executive Director in mid-January, I have made a determined attempt to keep - each week - two days in my diary that are committed to visiting our members. My aim to see at first-hand what our members are doing and also to inform them of my own ambitions to support their work and promote their achievements. It has been exceptionally rewarding.

Letter from Jim Duvall: The first 50 days

The first 50 days

Although not quite 50 days since I took over as the new Executive Director, I wanted to share with you some of our  plans for UKSPA in the coming months.

In January we said a fond farewell to our former CEO, Paul Wright, who has steered UKSPA across sometimes turbulent waters for the past 16 years. He will be sorely missed but we wish him all the very best in his new life in rural Wales.

Looking forward to Lincoln
