I have been fortunate to be a member of the Institution Of Analysts and Programmers for nearly 30 years.
The Institution represents software professionals and aims to improve software for society.
I became a member of the Institutions Council in the 1990’s and in 2000’s became the Web Site Director, then the Director Of Technology and Communications. In 2013 I became the Operations Director.
