Make a difference by helping shape the direction of APM - we are open for nominations to the APM board elections. Any full member (MAPM or FAPM) has the opportunity to stand and vote on who they would like to elect to the board.  

Board membership is a responsible and enjoyable role that is central to the governance of APM.  

Our award winning association needs committed, high calibre individuals to lead it and if you fit the bill please read on to see if you wish to put yourself forward.  Alternatively, please consider encouraging others to stand. 

APM is a company limited by guarantee and a registered charity.  As such, our board members are both company directors and charity trustees, which are formal and important roles.  

It is the board’s job to strategically lead the organisation, to hold the executive to account and to drive APM forward to reach its vision and deliver its public benefit remit. Board members have a fiduciary role on behalf of APM.  

Anyone wishing to stand for election should make sure they understand the nature of the role and read the candidate briefing pack in full. This provides more information on APM, the nature of the role, the time commitment and the type of candidate the board would like to see.  

Find out more about the current board and APM’s governance and watch this explanatory video from nominations & advocacy committee chair Sue Kershaw.  

This year, four board members are standing down and three will be elected following a decision by the board to reduce the number of elected board members from twelve to nine, with one fewer board member elected each year, over a three year period.

The board is also able to directly appoint a small number of board members and it has decided that one of these places will be set aside for a board member from the volunteer community. A separate process seeking candidates for that place will be launched by the community engagement team shortly.  

Members wishing to stand for election require the support of two other full members and need to complete the nomination form within the candidate briefing pack.  

The closing date for nominations is Wednesday 9th September and a ballot of the eligible membership will follow. The successful candidates will take office on 9th November at the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting.

Agility to succeed

4 October 2016

Agile refuses to analyse requirements beforehand – and thus declines to provide an initial certainty. This will probably always scare any stakeholder trying to understand whether or not they can show results to the board with the budget that they are granted.

Are you banging the wall rather than beating the drum?

4 October 2016

You have a choice. You can either muddle on, stand firm and fix it – or look elsewhere.
