Morag Fleming, a consultant with the fundraising agencies Decaid Consulting and Future Fundraising, has resigned from the board of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association after becoming chair of the Institute of Fundraising in Scotland.
Fleming, who is an account director at Future Fundraising and a director of Decaid Consulting, announced her departure to the PFRA board before its meeting last week.
This brings to an end her second stint on the PFRA board – she previously served as a charity representative between 2002 and 2011.
In June 2013, she joined the board as a "provider member", representing Future Fundraising, which meant she helped to advise the board on issues relevant to fundraising agencies.
Fleming said she had stepped down from her role after becoming chair of the Institute of Fundraising in Scotland in March because she did not have the time to carry out both roles.
On the PFRA board, Fleming worked in particular on the membership body’s Donor Attrition Retention Survey, which monitors the attrition rates for donors recruited through face-to-face fundraising.
She was also a convenor of PFRA Scotland.
Peter Hills-Jones, chief executive of the PFRA, said in a statement: "Morag leaves us with our very best wishes for the future. She was instrumental in establishing DARS as one of the foremost benchmarking exercises in the sector, and I would like to put on record our appreciation of her contribution to this work."
A spokesman for the PFRA said that Fleming’s replacement would be elected at the PFRA annual general meeting on 18 June.
