The Trustees

The trustees (formerly the Coordinating Group -CG) are made up of The Person Centred Association members who volunteer to help in the development of the Association. The group is made up of a Chair (vacant) and up to 8 elected members. The trustees can further co-opt 3 additional members. This is current as of November 2018

For those of you who are practitioners with a formal requirment for CPD and you are considering helping out by becoming a trustee, you may be pleased to know that acting as a trustee for The PCA yields 40 hours of CPD per year. The list of activities credited by BACP is here, and for UKCP sample guidance is here, and for National Counselling Society unfortunately it is behind their login page here.
