As we are a membership association, we take governance and our structure seriously.  We are a diverse, inclusive, passionate community of professionals and we want to make sure that our structure reflects that and allows everyone to make a contribution.  We are better as an association when everyone who wants to contribute, can.

Our new structure – allows us to:

  • Maintain a strategic focus on our objectives
  • Ensure that we are able to manage day to day business proactively and effectively, but always be able to respond to emerging opportunities
  • Enable our younger and more experienced professionals to contribute to our leadership team
  • Provide meaningful opportunities for our partners and sponsors to contribute to our work
  • Better develop a future talent pipeline of people who will become future leaders of the association
  • Give opportunities to people who don’t have much time but who want to support a particular PPMA issue to do so.

Our Senior Management Board (SMB), led by our President, leads the day to day work of the association.  It comprises our President, 5 Vice Presidents, Executive Director, Finance Director and Business & Marketing Coordinator.
