NOMINATIONS and results

We are delighted to announce that nominations closed on 21 June and we have received nominations for a number of posts that have gone up for elections this year to the ACMP UK Chapter volunteer board. No roles received more than one nomination so elections will not be held as they are not contested. We are therefore pleased to report the Nominations Committee have confirmed the nominees who will take up their post on 1 August 2021 are:

  • Treasurer and Director of Sponsorship: Andrea Jones
  • Director of Professional Development: Damian Jordan
  • District Director Northern Ireland: Jonny McCormick
  • District Director Wales: Paul Hilford

The board has thanked Amany Elbanna, our outgoing Director of Professional Development and Peter Gallagher, our outgoing Vice-President for their contributions, and we wish them well in their future endeavours and look forward to them continuing to be friends of the UK Chapter! 

We did not receive nominations for the Vice-President role, nor the District Director roles for Scotland and England (North).

what it involves being a volunteer director

The time commitment is usually about 4-8 hours a month, depending on role. We meet 'virtually' every other week and when social distancing will allow, hope to meet face-to-face as a board about 2-3 times a year. Plus, we get to see each other at ACMP UK Chapter networking events and professional development activities we all take part in running and hosting, whether they are virtual or if social distancing allows, face-to-face.

We have a development plan with our current focuses being on community, leadership, collaboration, commitment and accountability. Also, fun, as we are all volunteers passionate about change leadership and management, and want this not to be lost in bureaucracy! To bring these focuses to life our current activities are on:

  • being passionate about organisational change 
  • building a dynamic professional community of change practitioners
  • growing our professional development support to members and access to training and development opportunities that contribute to the CCMP credential
  • growing our UK Chapter affiliated membership
  • influencing ACMP Global policy and practice

If you are interested in the above roles and would like to talk anything through or are maybe interested in 'shadowing' a board member from August 2021, get in touch with us at info@acmpuk.com 

We are a volunteer member organisation, run for members by members, and we would love for you to get involved!
