You must be a Chapter member in good standing to be considered as a nominee or to vote in this election.  All positions for which nominations are solicited require at least one year of commitment to the Board of Directors. Please do not nominate someone if they cannot commit to attending two meetings per month and responding to action items dictated by Board meetings.

2019 Open Board Positions:

President: The President shall be the Chief Executive Officer for the Chapter and of the Board, and shall perform such duties as are customary for presiding officers, including making all required appointments with the approval of the Board. The President shall also serve as a member ex officio with the right to vote on all committees except the Nominating Committee. The President shall have authority to approve one-time expenditures of up to $500 in the event an expedient approval is necessary and approval by the Board would delay an activity requiring the funding. Such an approval will be presented to the rest of the Board as soon as practicable.

Executive Vice President: The Executive Vice President (EVP) shall be responsible for monitoring strategic projects identified in the annual Strategic Plan. The EVP shall preside over meetings when required in the absence of the President. The EVP shall assist the President in the execution of the charter and the operation of the chapter. Specifically, the EVP shall work with the Vice Presidents for Communications, Community Outreach, Marketing and Public Relations, and Professional Development to ensure the chapter meets the requirements of its charter in terms of representation of the project management discipline in the greater Charleston area.

VP Finance: The Vice President for Finance serves in a fiduciary capacity on behalf of the chapter, and is primarily responsible for managing all financial matters related to chapter business, including the function of treasurer for the Chapter. As such, the Vice President for Finance shall oversee the management of all funds for duly authorized purposes within the Chapter.
