Nomination and Election Process

We invite you to consider nominating yourself for the PMI –DHC Chapter Board of Directors.  These officers will begin their 3-year terms starting in June 2018 for a three -year term.  We have intentionally designed our election process to allow for  transitioning and job shadowing so the officer-elect can be confident when their term begins. 

In accordance with our Chapter by-laws:

  1. In 2018, the PMI-DHC Chapter will be electing from the general membership up to three (3) Directors who will each stand for a 3 year term on the Chapter Board. 
  1. Candidates must be current members of PMI-DHC and have held membership for at least six (6) months. Candidates should  have previous volunteer experience with PMI. Candidates must also be in good standing with PMI as a whole.
  2. The Nominations Committee requires your nominations to be submitted on the provided nomination form by e-mailed to elections@pmi-dhc.ca (or in person) no later than 11:59 p.m. on February 4th, 2018.
  3. The Nominations Committee will review nominations against the identified desired skill set. Candidates who are not currently serving on the PMI-DHC Board of Directors will also be interviewed.  If the candidate(s) do not meet the desired skill sets, the Nominations Committee will make a second call for nominations to the general membership.
  4. Final nominations will be reviewed against the desired skill sets, including reference checks. The Nominations Committee will contact any nominees whose names will not be included on the slate for election.
  5. If more than three (3) candidates pass the above review, the slate of candidates will be compiled and presented to the membership via email and published on the PMI-DHC website on February 11th, 2018 so that an election can be conducted.  Instructions will be sent by email to all current members. Members will have the opportunity to vote online until 11:59 p.m. on Feb 25th, 2018.
  6. The Nominations Committee will review the results and notify all candidates of the election results, prior to release to the membership.
  7. The results of the 2018 Nominations and Election Process will be announced the day after the election is closed via email to all members, and posted on the PMI-DHC website.
