Transforming PMI Sydney Chapter Board

SandeepMarthurIt has been a while I communicated to all of you.  It is my thirteenth year on Board and I have seen lots of highs and lows in our wonderful Chapter.  Change being the only constant, we need to prepare our Board for future.  Some reasons of the change are:

  • To implement recommendations from PMI Asia-Pacific & Gallup after their review of our Board functioning
  • Our board size is one of the biggest among other PMI Australia chapters and we are also double the average Board size in Australia
  • To align our composition and size to best practices from AICD

While we are keeping options open, the outcomes we are looking for are:

  • Determine & implement optimal Board size and composition
  • Deliver updated By-Laws and Handbook
  • Provide input for 2019 Chapter Elections
  • Implement outsourcing of Secretarial/Administration Support

Some of the other points for consideration are:

  • Setting up our Chapter for future
  • Transition President & Vice-President roles in the same election cycle
  • Members electing Board Members and Board Members assign portfolios (a PMI Asia Pacific recommendation)
  • Using unsuccessful election candidates to fill Casual Vacancies

I am in process of setting up a Board Transformation Committee to get this transformation done.  If you are interested in knowing more or wish to get involved, please do reach out to me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
