Silver work anniversary for TSA’s Secretary General

Published: 20 Jul 2023

This week, our Secretary General Rachel Tyrrell is celebrating 25 years of working at The Survey Association.

Rachel says,

“I can’t quite believe it’s been 25 years, although sometimes it seems to have gone in a flash! TSA has evolved enormously since I started working here, although our ethos of championing the surveying profession remains unchanged. Today we have over 200 members, and I feel so proud to have been part of that expansion.

“Earlier this year, I was absolutely thrilled to be included in the inaugural Women in Trade Associations Powerlist and I continue to be very proud of the work we do here to promote the geospatial community and improve professional standards. My role has developed over the years of course, but I honestly love what I do, particularly maintaining good relationships with TSA members and listening to their concerns. Even after 25 years, I look forward to starting work every day, which I think says a lot about my fantastic and supportive team, a dedicated and skilled Council as well as the entire TSA membership.”

Our President Nick Hampson, says,

“Rachel has committed 25 years to the TSA cause and her dedication and hard work was rewarded in 2019 with appointment as Secretary General. Rachel leads from the front and has worked diligently to reorganise the TSA Secretariat into its current format, ensure the maintenance of the solid foundation of TSA finances, and has worked with Council to inspire and create the three Vision Statements that now provide a clear direction for TSA in the coming years.”
