Point-to-Point Secretaries Association (PPSA), as its name would suggest, brings together the secretaries of each point-to-point meeting under the direction of an area secretary, and represents them in dealing with the other organisations involved with the sport.

Ilona became chair of the Point-to-Point Secretaries Association (PPSA) in May 2020, and is also the South Midlands area secretary and fixture secretary for the Barbury International fixture. Her husband Andrew's family roots are firmly set in farming, hunting and pointing in Warwickshire. They have bred, owned, ridden and trained all their own horses for a number of years.
Ilona is also a highly successful General Manager of busy Stratford-on-Avon Racecourse and a regular Steward at numerous meetings from Cottenham to Andoversford.
