About the Accreditation SIG

PARN have created a new Accreditation Special Interest Group (SIG). Our aim is for staff of professional bodies to learn from their peers at regular online events, gain access to a wealth of relevant resources, and support each other in tackling accreditation issues within their organisations.

We are delighted to have a Steering Group who bring such passion and experience to the SIG:

 Eve Orton, British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy

Laura Stirling, Chartered Institute of Building

Membership to the Accreditation SIG is now open

The membership year runs from 1st Feb 2021 to 31st Jan 2022. Members will have access to 3 virtual events per year, a Compendium of Guidance which will contain the practical guidance discussed at each meeting, and access to a closed LinkedIn group as a platform to network with other members, to discuss and share relevant content outside of meetings.

Membership costs £120+VAT for PARN members, and £240+VAT for non-members.

More information on the benefits of membership and how to join can be found in the Membership Brochure
