About the Director at Large Role

PMIQld's Volunteer Directors at Large are elected roles that represents our members, and ensure strong governance of our organisation.  Ultimately our board members are custodians of our chapter values, assets, and contribution to industry; and ensure we stay on Mission, contribute to our Strategic Pillars, and create a vibrant and wonderful community for all PMIQld Members. All of our Directors at Large play many active roles in the chapter - contributing to our monthly board meetings, collaborating with other chapters nationally and internationally, representing PMIQld in the community, bringing networks and supports to PMIQld, being involved in steering committees for major PMIQld Initiatives, leading new or special initiative areas for PMIQld, senior engagement with Qld Industry, supporting our volunteer leaders, and always being available to all members to assist any concerns, opportunities or correspondence.  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.


Our Chapter Mission, Vision and Pillars are what we are about.
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 ( to discuss how volunteering might open great doors for you.
