Call for Nominations for Chapter Council Elections

Call for Nominations for Chapter Council Elections

As part of the planned annual renewal of Chapter Councils, this year the Australian Institute of Project Management is seeking nominations for Chapter Councillor positions.

Each Chapter currently has a set number of Chapter Councillor positions for which nominations are now being sought, and we encourage all members to consider nominating to join your Chapter Council and help enable the implementation of AIPM’s strategy and the future of the project management profession in Australia at Chapter level. All AIPM members will have received an email with details on their local chapter's requirements in the past week.

As a volunteer Chapter Councillor you will donate your expertise, skills and time in a structured and effective way. Working with a diverse group of professionals, you may have the opportunity to be involved in a wide range of local activities including, but certainly not limited to:

  • Chapter seminars, forums and events;
  • Working groups to support AIPM’s strategic priorities;
  • Communities of practice; and
  • Emerging areas of interest.

In return for your contribution, volunteering with AIPM would give you the chance to:

  • Utilise your skills and ideas to progress the project management profession;
  • Assist with the development and delivery of AIPM initiatives nationally and locally that you are passionate about;
  • Identify areas of interest that you would like to explore;
  • Earn CPD points; and
  • Have fun networking with like-minded individuals.

Chair of the AIPM Governance & Ethics Committee, Nicole Nader MAIPM CPPM, shared her thoughts on nominating when she said “Volunteering to be a Chapter Councillor with the AIPM is one of the most rewarding things you can do as a member of our Institute. The profession is changing shape as we speak and we as an Institute have recognised the need to keep abreast of this changing environment. We know we’re under represented across a number of demographics and industries and to ensure a sustainable future as Australia’s peak membership body we need to diversify and engage. Please help AIPM be the best it can be - we need your voices inside our teams, inside our membership and at our committee tables.”

Full eligibility criteria and information on how to nominate can be found on the Elections page of our website.

Nominations close at 12 Noon AEDT on Tuesday 21 November 2017.
