Thanks for everything Steve

Yesterday marked Steve Hodgson's last day at the PCA. Steve dedicated a quarter of a century to the PCA and we couldn't let the opportunity pass by without sharing our gratitude to Steve and all that he has done for the Association, the members and the PCA team.

In this latest blog, past and present Chairs of the PCA Board have shared their memories of working with Steve along with our 'farewell' video you may have seen played at this years' awards.

From everyone at the PCA, Steve, thanks for everything. We wish you all the best for the future and no doubt see you in the office soon!. To read more and to watch the video, you can simply click on the button below.
