|Our current Board members met for our regular annual 2 day September Board meeting on 27th and 28th September in beautiful Oxford. Our days were very productive and we confirmed our next steps in terms of implementing the structure.
Additionally, I am pleased to say that on Friday we were joined by our Platinum and Gold sponsors and a number of our MOU partners. This was a great opportunity to share our plans with them. It was a hugely constructive session and we have generated great ideas
In terms of our recruitment process, it is essential that we adopt the advice that we give our own organisations – and we ratified this at last week’s meeting. That is, whilst we recognise that we have incumbents who want to be considered for new roles, it’s also appropriate that we open up recruitment more widely to all current members of PPMA.
In this way we will ensure we have the best of the wisdom and experience of current leaders and the best of the new energy and ideas in our broader community. We all feel that is an important message to send to our community.
Current Board members are in the process of indicating which role(s) they are interested in.
We are now opening up that same opportunity to you. The available roles are set out below. Our process and timeline is also set out at the end of this message – please ensure you read that carefully.
We are asking for expressions of interest for the following roles.
- Strategic Themes
- Talent and Membership
Regional Champions for the following regions:
- Midlands and Wales
- South West
- South East
Strategic Theme Leads:
- Developing our Organisations
- Future Workforce
Our Let’s Talk: You theme will be covered by the VP Talent and Membership role.
Chair – Shires Network
Each role, with the exception of the VP roles can have a Lead and a Deputy.
We are also seeking expressions of interest for our new concept of Ambassador – this enables you to support PPMA with as much time as you can realistically offer in support of one of our 8 strategic themes. It is important that you share with us how much time you can commit to our work programme for the year ahead – this can be as little as 1 day per year upward. You should also highlight which strategic theme(s) you are able to support.
You can find out more information about the roles here.
