Call for Nomations to Begin Soon for PMIGLC Elections

PMIGLC will soon initiate its elections process for open Vice President (VP) positions. As a member of the Executive Committee, Vice Presidents maintain a cross-functional strategic focus while providing leadership of their respective Directors and committees.

Each elected VP will serve from January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2021.

The two-year VP term enables better acclimation to board operations, as well as increased opportunity to realize the VP's vision in support of the GLC strategic plan. The annual board transition meeting will also assist newly elected VPs with lessons-learned and other valuable information as they prepare for their term. Please watch your email as more details are announced.
