It is again time to conduct the elections for the Chapter’s Board of Directors. Based on our chapter’s current bylaws, we need to nominate individuals who will serve in four roles on our five member Board of Directors:
1) President: The role of the President is to be the chief officer of the Chapter. The President chairs Board meetings, is the principal point of contact to PMI.org, and is responsible for the overall health and direction of the Chapter. The President is responsible for educational and community outreach, Marketing and social media, and Member Services.
2) Vice President, Administration: The VP Administration keeps the records of all Silicon Valley PMI Chapter business matters (except those relating to finance), interfaces with the PMI GOC, and manages the reporting of chapter business metrics. The VP Administration also manages core IT infrastructure and Volunteer Services.
4) Vice President, Operations: The VP Operations leads the operations of the Silicon Valley PMI Chapter. This position oversees Program and Workshop events, Event website Marketing, Operations Process Improvements, Speakers Bureau, and Event Facilities management.
These four officers along with the Vice President-Strategy, will serve on next year’s Board. Elected officers will have a term that begins on January 1, 2019, and ends on December 31, 2019.
All PMISV chapter members in good standing are eligible for self-nomination, who are PMP certified and those having prior volunteer service within the chapter are preferred. Certain Board positions (such as Finance and President) have specific requirements. If you are interested in serving the chapter next year as a member of the board, please log into the membership area of the chapter website to review the Election Process description. The online nomination form, position descriptions and other useful information are located there. If you wish to be considered for more than one role, please fill out a form for each. Nominations are open now, and will remain open until Saturday, October 20th 2018.
As with our elections for 2018, we will be conducting these elections electronically. Watch for voting information in the next several weeks!
