As the voting member representing your entity, PRIMA’s Leadership Development Committee (LDC) urges you to run for office. Any designated voting representative who is directly employed by the entity he or she represents is eligible to serve as a PRIMA board member. Each director serves one three-year term. After two years of service, directors are also eligible to run for president-elect. This is an opportunity for you to make a meaningful contribution to the public risk management profession by assuming a leadership role at the national level.
The PRIMA Board of Directors meets four times a year, generally in the months of February, June, September and November/December. PRIMA will pay for all board-related travel expenses to attend board meetings.
The application form must be received by PRIMA by January 11, 2017. All applications will be reviewed by the LDC and finalists will be interviewed in Alexandria, VA, on March 6, 2017.
PRIMA will pay all travel expenses associated with the interview. The Leadership Development Committee will then nominate candidates from this group to fill the open director positions on the Board. Those candidates nominated by the LDC will be submitted via ballot to the voting members of PRIMA for confirmation. Newly elected directors will be installed in June at the 2017 PRIMA Annual Conference in Phoenix.
If you have any questions about the nominating process or eligibility for office, please contact Jennifer Ackerman, deputy executive director, at PRIMA’s headquarters, 703.253.1267 or via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
