Networking and Social Events Connecting You

PA Network






The East Midlands PA Network is a peer-to-peer membership group supported by the Chamber. Open to all those working in personal assistant or related roles, it harnesses relationships and the sharing of best practice through numerous activities.

The Chamber-supported PA Network supports and connects Personal Assistants (PAs) and Executive Assistants (EAs), through a variety of training and networking opportunities, shares best practice while developing long-lasting collaborative partnerships.

Today’s PAs and EAs provide a vital role within modern organisations, and those in the profession can turn to the inclusive PA Network for inspiration and support in what can be an isolated role.

The network, founded and led by Lesley Young, the Chamber’s Executive Support Manager, has been running since 2006 and operates across the three counties that the Chamber represents. Its overarching vision lies in raising the profile of PAs and EAs while simultaneously building confidence within the profession.

Keep up to date with events and news from the profession in general, and add to the debates and discussions, via social media – find us on Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.


The PA Network produces a quarterly newsletter which includes the latest news and information from the industry as well as upcoming events and conferences covering everything from networking, best practice to training and skills opportunities.

The network welcomes contributions from members. For more information, and to contribute, email Lesley Young at

We have taken the decision not to run our own events this year, mostly due to time and resources pressures.  Instead, our Network's activity will be further embedded into Chamber planned event activity and training to ensure that an offering to members continues.

We will also be promoting EPAA (our professional body) and various Chamber and partner events, where they are relevant for the EA/PA community, and will have a continued presence on social media (see links above), sharing indusry news and good practice.
