The first meeting in Lichfield of what was then called National Association of Health Service Personnel Officers (NAHSPO) was in 1974 when colleagues gathered together to compare share experience, develop their skills and discuss the how they could improve the health of the nation through good HR
The organisation has been through several chapters during its history, including three name changes.
The organisation was renamed Association of Healthcare HR Management (AHHRM) in 1994 and renamed as Healthcare People Management Association (HPMA) in 2005. Most importantly, HPMA has always been about HR professionals, coming together to listen, learn, share ideas and challenges and doing so to improve the quality of our health and care services, thereby improving the lives of people across the UK.
HPMA became a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) a couple of years ago and has been through a period of embedding new governance arrangements, defining HPMA’s vision and strategy and undertaking a transformation of the operational activities, appointing its first Executive Director in July 2017.
The Board of Trustees are responsible for the overall governance and strategic direction of the charity, developing the organisations aims, objectives and goals in accordance with the governing document, legal and regulatory guidelines.
All Trustees are asked to promote HPMA mission and values, providing high quality governance in accordance with requirements of charity law and good practice, guide its strategic development, monitor the performance of senior staff and support its work by drawing on personal contacts and experience.
