As part of being an open and transparent body, which is fully representative of its members and their interests, the period for nominations for certain Board positions has now been opened.
These are part of the process where all Board positions are re-elected on at least a three year rolling cycle, although existing members of the Board may stand for re-election. This year’s Board elections will take place in the Regional firm constituency and two of the Network constituencies.
Any AMI member firm who falls under one of these constituencies can nominate a member of their senior management team to stand for election. To stand individuals must complete a nomination form and be nominated by an AMI member from within the same constituency. Nomination forms must be returned to AMI by 12th December 2013.
Should more than one AMI member want to stand for the Board, a contested election will take place. Those individuals standing will be required to submit a biography and an election manifesto to those constituents eligible to vote. Ballot papers for a contested election will be sent out by 19th December.
The results will be announced on 17th January 2014.
Robert Sinclair, chief executive of AMI, said: “The AMI Board is plays a vital role for the organisation in providing direction and policy guidance to AMI’s activities. Members wishing to serve as AMI Board members must be committed advocates of the intermediary distribution channel and prepared to represent not just their own constituents but the entire mortgage intermediary profession. We hope AMI members will want to contribute to the trade body’s work and shape our ongoing agenda by standing for election.”
AMI members who wish to stand for election to the Board and are in either the Regional firm or Network constituency can request a nomination form by e-mailing Alex Revell at: [email protected]
