About the Secretary Role
PMIQld's Volunteer Secretary is an elected role that represents our members, and ensures strong procedural and regulatory governance of our organisation. Ultimately this role is a custodian of our chapter correspondence, procedures, values and works across all our activities to ensure we stay on Mission, contribute to our strategic Pillars, and create a vibrant and wonderful community for all PMIQld Members. Like most of our board roles the Secretary plays many roles in the chapter - managing our correspondence, keeping us within our charter and constitution, keeping records and minutes, coordinating the order of business within our monthly board meetings, representing PMIQld in the community, being involved in steering committees for major PMIQld Initiatives, supporting our volunteer leaders, and always being available to all members to assist any concerns or opportunities. In common with all our board roles, elections are run strictly controlled by PMI, with all board members serving 2 year terms with a maximum of 4 consecutive terms allowed on the board.
Volunteering is also a huge part of how PMI Qld provides value to members, and also how members can best get to know others and establish new skills and strong networks in industry. If you have an interest in better networks, giving back, or showcasing or growing your skills please contact our Associate Director - Volunteering (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss how volunteering might open great doors for you.
