Call To Prospective Board Members
The ISACA London Nominations Committee still seeks applications to join the ISACA-London Board for the 2017-18 term. Nominations close on the 28th February and all the details, including board role descriptions and the application form, can be found here.
Following on from our launch during the Chapter’s 23rd January event, we now have one firm vacancy, that of Company Secretary.
But, as the entire Board steps down each year and a new board endorsed at the AGM, all positions are potentially available. The role descriptions set out the criteria.
We have also introduced the role of Apprentices to Board Members. For those not yet ready to take on full board positions, there are now Apprentice roles working to corresponding Portfolio Directors, the Treasurer and the Company Secretary. This not only provides support for the corresponding board member, but also offers experience relevant to succession to that higher role.
If you are interested in serving, wish to nominate someone, or have any questions about serving, contact any Board Member or reply directly to [email protected], to which completed nominations forms should also be sent.
