Message from Immediate Past-President – June 2018
NCPMI Board Election
The NCPMI Board of Officers is comprised of nine elected officers: President, President-Elect, Immediate Past President, VP Membership, VP Programs, VP Professional Development, VP Certifications, VP Communications & Technology, and VP Finance, Governance and Policy.
The officers are elected by the NCPMI members for a two-year term, except the President and President-Elect who is in office for one year. The 2018 President-Elect will become the 2019 President and the current President will move to the Immediate Past President role for an additional year on the board.
The VP Membership, VP Professional Development, and VP Communications & Technology are elected in odd years while the VP Finance, VP Programs and VP Certifications are elected in even years.
As the Immediate Past-President, one of my roles is to set the motion for the NCPMI election. The first action is to appoint the members of the Election Nominating Committee as an impartial entity to assist with the election activities. The role of the Nominating Committee is well defined in the election process policy for NCPMI. The committee activities comprise of but not limited to: review candidate submissions, confirm there are no ethic complaints filed against the candidate, interview the candidate, review past involvement with NCPMI in a leadership role and finally the Nominating Committee will develop an approved candidates list for the following 2019- 2020 NCPMI Board of Officers roles: President-Elect, VP Finances, VP Programs and VP Certifications.
Early in August 2018, we will call upon all NCPMI members to vote for the best candidate to join the current elected officers to govern NCPMI Board with the responsible for carrying out the purposes and objectives of the nonprofit corporation.
The election will be conducted by electronic ballot from PMI. It’s my sincere hope that the turnout will be unprecedented with a call for at least twenty-five (25%) percent of NCPMI 3,691 members returning their ballots.
It has been a pleasure for me to serve you as the 2018 Immediate Past-President.
Myriam Augustin, Immediate Past-President
