AIPM announces new Board of Directors

Directors, Chapters, Constitution

AIPM announces new Board of Directors
AIPM members recently voted unanimously to approve the implementation of a new constitution for the Institute. One key change to the constitution is the number and make-up of the Institute’s Board of Directors.

The new Board will now consist of four Generally Elected Directors and four Congress Elected Directors elected from the eight Chapter Presidents.

Along with the four new Generally Elected Directors from our recent national elections, the Chapter Congress got together to vote their four representatives to the board and with that the new board sponsor roles were assigned to the eight Directors. The new Board also voted in our first ever Chair and Deputy Chair.

As per the constitution, one Generally Elected Director and one Congress Elected Director will be up for election each year. To help facilitate that transition, the Generally Elected Directors and Congress Elected Directors were all appointed one, two or three year terms.

For the Chapters who had their President move on to the Board, they appointed new Presidents and each state also appointed a Vice President and Treasurer as per the new Constitution.

As a result, please see here for a list of the new Board of Directors of the Australian Institute of Project Management.
