2017 AIPM Chapter Council Elections


Introduction

As part of the planned annual renewal of Chapter Councils, this year the AIPM is seeking nominations for Chapter Councillor positions.

AIPM can only achieve the objectives of our organisation through the valuable contribution made by our passionate volunteers. Through the role of Chapter Councillor you will be able to help enable the implementation of AIPM’s strategy and the future of the project management profession in Australia at Chapter level.

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.

If you are uncertain about the time commitment or tasks, please speak with your Chapter President or members of your local Chapter Council.

To be eligible to nominate for this position, you must demonstrate the following:

  1. Current AIPM membership at Associate level or above; and
  2. Eligibility for RegPM certification.

AIPM encourages applications from members from a wide range of backgrounds, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical abilities and family status. Please see the AIPM Diversity Statement.
