In addition to candidates possessing all or most of the above characteristics, the total composition of the Board should strive to be reflective of the diversity existing in the South African marketplace in respect to gender, culture, geographical location and stakeholder groups.

Therefore for the July 2018 ballot we require nominations to allow the Board to be able to function according to the act, our MOI and King IV. The mutually exclusive competencies we will be developing in Directors include: Finance and audit; Director’s trainingRisk managementPerformance auditsEthicsNPO Legal issuesConflict Management; Intimate knowledge of PMI and the Chapter.

Volunteer leaders will be supported to claim PDU’s for effort invested. Effort required should be preparation and attendance of four to five Board meetings annually, with committee meetings between. This activity should not prevent volunteers to participate in other volunteer and leadership activities.
