Call for Nominations - PRME UK and Ireland Steering Committee
Dear Members and Supporters of the PRME Chapter UK and Ireland,
Call for Nominations - Chapter Steering Committee - five positions available for a three year term
Our Chapter offers members many opportunities to get involved in our seven local networks, in our three annual competitions and in many other projects. All of these activities are shaped and overseen by an elected Chapter Steering Committee. Having creative, thoughtful, collaborative and hardworking individuals on our Steering Committee is essential to understanding the needs and harnessing the energies of our wider membership. There is always more to be done, and always room for making the Chapter's impact greater.
This year we have five vacancies to fill on the Steering Committee in the lead-up to our AGM on 29 June 2022 at our annual conference in Hull.
To this end we are calling for nominations of individuals who would like to extend their involvement in PRME-related work by standing for a three year term on the UK and Ireland Steering Committee. Those interested can nominate themselves using this nomination form.
The five vacancies on the Steering Committee arise from existing members reaching the end of their first term of office. As permitted in our governance rules, these members may choose to stand for a second and final term in open competition with new nominees. However, at least two such members have already indicated they do not intend to seek a second term.
We welcome nominations from across the full spectrum of our membership. To guide those thinking of nominating themselves and to avoid future misunderstandings, please be aware of the following:
Following a recent skills and roles audit, the Steering Committee (SC) particularly needs new members able to take a lead in one or more of the following areas: Chapter Secretary; Innovative Pedagogy Competition; Communications, Social Media and Website; Organisational Learning and Impact.
As evidence of expertise and experience, SC nominees would normally be expected to show within their applications a track record of prior involvement in Chapter working groups, local networks or projects over at least 12 months. Where this is not possible, a PRME-related track record at least in part beyond the home institution should be demonstrated.
Steering Committee members need to be willing to make a regular time commitment over the three year term and be accountable for agreed projects if elected.
Members undertake to abide by the PRME UKI Steering Committee Code of Conduct.
Nominees should be employed by Members of the Chapter - if you are unsure if you are eligible, check out your School's membership status by emailing PRME_UKI@gcu.ac.uk
Anyone wishing to nominate themselves is welcome to contact the Chair or Vice-Chair (see details below) for an informal conversation about what is involved. A full list of current SC members can be found here.
Please help us seek good nominees by publicising this opportunity within your institution.
Voting Forms along with details of all nominees will be distributed to the individuals identified as the principal PRME contact in each Chapter member, at the time the AGM papers are circulated in the second week in June. Voting forms will be returned prior to the AGM and the results announced at the AGM on 29th June.
Thank you, as always, for all your support of the Chapter's work.
We look forward to some excellent nominations !
