APM election season begins in UK



Nominations for 2016 APM Board are now open through 21 September

22 July 2016 – London, UK – The Association for Project Management (APM) in the UK has announced that it is now accepting nominations for their 2016 board election.

160722-pmwj49-apm-LOGOAPM has a democratic process for electing its board. The APM board is comprised of members and elected by members. They are seeking candidates to help lead the association who are committed, high calibre and experienced individuals.  The ability to think and act strategically is considered a prerequisite.  Previous experience of working at senior executive and board level is therefore highly desirable.

Diversity on the board is also desired so nominations are sought from members who can bring a broad range of backgrounds, skills and experiences.  If you are not personally interested, please consider encouraging others to stand.  Any full member or fellow of APM who feels they have what it takes to fulfil this key role is encouraged to submit a nomination form by 21 September.

Interested candidates are strongly encouraged to read the briefing pack in full.  The nominations form is included within it. For a first-hand account of what the APM is looking for and the benefits of serving on the board, watch Sue Kershaw discuss exactly what it takes to be an APM board member and learn how you could be part of the future of APM. Once all nominations have been received, full members will review and elect their preferred candidates. The timeline for the elections is as follows:

10 October 2016 – Elections open
10 November 2016 – Elections close
21 November 2016 – Results announced at the AGM
