The UK Policy Governance® Association (UKPGA) was originally established as the UK Policy Governance Group in October 2005, and subsequently incorporated as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee in April 2006. The association is principally concerned with promoting owner-accountable, ethical and effective governance using the Carver Policy Governance model.
The UKPGA is a wholly independent organisation and is governed by a board comprising entirely of ‘non-executive’ directors – John Bruce, Caroline Oliver (Chair), Valerie Moore , Vijay Mistri , Ray Tooley and Susan Rogers.
The UKPGA has strong links with the International Policy Governance Association (IPGA). Caroline Oliver is a founding member and former Chair of the IPGA. John Bruce, UKPGA board member, is a member of the IPGA board.
