The ART, a membership organisation for qualified Trichologists and those studying the science of trichology, has announced that its Board of Directors have elected Susan Ringsell as General Manager effective 1st April 2019.
Mike Patey stepped down as General Manager, having successfully overseen development of the association since 2017, including our sponsorship of the National Trichology Conference in 2017 and the TrichoCare Student Conference in 2018.
“This is the perfect time for Susan Ringsell to become ART’s new General Manager. We’ve selected an experienced development leader at a time when The ART is expanding its membership,” said Brian Plunkett ART member and Founder.
ART is a community
Information, experience and best practice are shared to provide their clients with a professional diagnosis and treatment plan for hair loss, hair thinning and diseases of the hair and scalp. Through our register of qualified members, anyone who is worried about the health of their hair and scalp can get in touch with a Registered Trichologist using Find a Tricholoigst.
The diagnosis of hair and scalp problems can range from hair loss to hair thinning for both men and women. When visiting a Trichologist, it’s important to know that all ART members are bound by a code of ethics.
Susan Ringsell, General Manager, The ART comments: “Every person looking for help should be able to access trustworthy advice at a time when they need it most; the role of ART members has never been more important, and I’m delighted to be facilitating the future as we enter this new chapter.”
“Above all, ART members prioritise trust. Our code of ethics is central to our membership, to reassure those who seek help from an ART member they will only be recommended effective treatments”, says Wil Fleeson, Registered Trichologist and Founding Partner of Trichology Scotland.
Jacky van Driel, Registered Trichologist and Founder of Trichology Europe explains the role of trichology: “Qualified Trichologists and the need diagnosis and treatment has never been more widely sought by those experiencing hair loss and diseases of the hair and scalp. ART Membership is a badge of professionalism, quality and trust.”
As a professional membership organisation, the ART logo and certificate represents quality, confidence and trust that anyone seeking help can rely on.
All members have access to clinical support and queries can be sent direct to ART’s bank of experts who can advise on referrals, or where appropriate, diagnosis and treatment options.
The ART collaborates and works with trichology training providers to measure and assure the quality and consistency of accredited standards. It’s an international organisation and recognises appropriate qualifications from education and training bodies from around the world.
Margaret Simpson, Registered Trichologist and Founding Partner of Trichology Scotland comments: “For those suffering from hair loss finding trichologists that are ethical, trustworthy and in fact qualified can be daunting. The ART gives consumers the peace of mind and tools to find trichologists that are just that.”
