The purpose of AIME’s Board is to ensure that your Trade Association achieves its mission goals, its long term and short term directions are set and that the finances are in good order. Board Members are elected from the AIME Membership by AIME Members.
The board exists to ensure that the Association’s Members interests are being upheld. The AIME Board is also expected to contribute towards the success of AIME, to act as a conduit to increase Membership, prevent loss of Membership, participate in initiatives and working groups and share their individual expertise into AIME to help the Executive and Members to gain benefit from their expertise.
The elected Board members make collective decisions that will affect AIME’s direction. No single board member can influence the direction of AIME without full Board approval.
The AIME Board also recruits relevant expertise to ensure the full breadth of membership interests are represented fairly. These board members are called co-opted members and they do not have any voting rights.
Board Meetings are held quarterly and concentrate on:
Strategic direction and decisions
Direction of travel of the Executives activities
Budget approval and financial governance
Where required, approve membership applications
Set and monitor AIME’s annual objectives & KPIs
Where required adjudicate on members’ conduct and the AIME Code of Ethics when appropriate
Board elections are held every year in early March with 50% of the board retiring from their position
