Directly following the delivery of our annual Keynote Presentation at the APM's Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire Branch which featured not one, but two leading advocates of benefits realisation - Stephen Jenner and Peter Glynne, Philip Smelt was re-elected as Branch Chairman at our Annual General Meeting on Wednesday 19th May.
Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire branch is one of the twelve UK based branches delivering the APM's services at the regional level. The branch has as its aim the representation of all programme and project managers in the region.
The branch committee (all volunteers), and members network to achieve:
Evolution of the APM strategy, and the promotion of project management as a professional discipline
Monitoring in order to meet the needs of branch members
A forum for members and guests to meet and share their experiences
Encouragement of professional development and education
Collaboration with other related associations and bodies to the benefit of the project management community.
The AGM also included the election of two other officers. Sarah Martin was re-elected as Treasurer and Neil Kendall was duly elected Secretary following the departure of Jayne Thomas to foreign climes, as part of her Network Rail work.
Jayne now works in Scotland, but does however, intend to continue to involve herself with the committee whenever possible.
