Posted by APM on 11th Nov 2013
The APM Board will welcome three new and one returning member when it convenes on Tuesday following the 2013 Annual General Meeting held at APMs offices in Princes Risborough.
The election result, which was announced by APM acting company secretary Peter Van Duzer at the meeting, saw Kevin Barton, Susie Boyce and Christine Burt joining the board alongside Rod Baker who returns after a year.
The new members replace Alistair Godbold and David Hart, along with chairman Mike Nichols who chose not to stand for re-election, and Keith Robinson who resigned from the board due to time pressures last year.
The election saw a slight increase in the number of members casting their vote; the 1,683 votes gave a turnout of 13.5%. This was a marginal increase of 0.1% compared 2012. There was a slight increase in the proportion of members voting online.
The turnout compares favourably when benchmarked against the Institution of Engineering and Technology (10.3%), British Computer Society (7.42%) and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (6.3%).
