Message from tPCA Chair.

by Kathy Engler
Published on 14 June 2023
Please find below information from Jonno Ward about his resignation as Chair of tPCA.   The trustees would like to thank Jonno for his leadership and support over the last 10 month and although this new role means a loss for tPCA we hope it will  benefit person-centred practitioners far and wide. 
The Trustees will operate as a "group" without an official chair until the AGM on 13th August and roles will be agreed by the group after the AGM. If you would like to stand as a Trustee please send the name of a proposer and seconder (who must be a tPCA member) to Kathy at
Dear membership,

I am informing you that I stepped down as Chair and resigned from the Trustee Group on Sunday 11thJune.

In brief, I was offered a job role that has responsibility for the assessment and implementation of SCoPEd Framework Competencies and this is a role that I have accepted. 

It was made very explicit, and understandably so, that my role as Chair of tPCA is a direct conflict of interest with this new job role given tPCA’s public stance in opposition to SCoPEd. 

I therefore made the *very* difficult, if appropriate, judgment call to resign.

I have greatly enjoyed my time in support of the aims and objectives of the Association, and leave my role optimistic that the consolidation and growth of tPCA will continue dynamically and inclusively.

I would like to thank the trustees for their enthusiasm, and LJ Potter and Kathy Engler in particular for solid support of me in my role and of the Association at large.

With my very best to you all, and with my personal thanks for choosing to be a member of the Association.
