STEP 30th Anniversary

In July 2021, STEP celebrates its 30th birthday having held its inaugural meeting, which appointed the first Council, on 4 July 1991 and registering as a Private Limited Company on 25 July.

We will be marking this important milestone throughout our 30th year – looking back at our impact, celebrating the important contributions of individuals that have brought us to where we are today, and looking forward to the next 30 years and the role STEP will play in shaping the industry.

The best thing about STEP is...

From humble beginnings in the UK , STEP has grown into a global organisation with 22,000 members across more than 100 countries. Practitioners join STEP to demonstrate their expertise and high professional standards, to keep their knowledge and skills up to date, and to connect with practitioners globally to share knowledge and best practice and build their professional network. But what do our members say is the best thing about STEP?
