PARN is delighted to announce that our CEO Professor Andy Friedman has been asked to join the Professional & Business Services Council.
PBSC is a wide ranging and high level group with excellent connections to government ministers and top civil servants. It is chaired jointly by the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State, BEIS and the Chairman of Deloitte LLP. View a list of representatives and more background information here.
PARN believes that Andy's appointment, as the representative of PARN Members, emphasises not only the importance of professional bodies but crucially how important it is for the voice of the sector to be heard. Over the past few years PARN has seen concern growing amongst our membership over the uncertainty of the future, the challenges presented and the need to respond to this external change. In these challenging times, particularly against the context of Brexit, it is vital that PARNs members are strongly represented. PARN is encouraged at the value placed upon the voice of the sector that this appointment shows.
Over the coming months we hope to have more information to share and we may have further opportunities for PARN members to get involved and have their say. Please keep an eye out for the latest news from PARN as well as the PARN Blog.
