Board Elections 2018
The aimm Board election process starts on the 1st February, with a call for nominations and candidates were open until the 14th February. This year’s aimm Board elections carried eight vacancies as a result of confirmation of our constitution and early resignations of two Board members. We have had five nominations for these eight vacancies and so there will be no necessity to run a vote
We are pleased to welcome our new members to the Board. To learn more about our new candidates you can read their profiles and manifesto’s here: 2018 Candidates manifesto profiles information pack.

The Board responsibilities guidance can be found here.
The Board exists to ensure that the association’s members interests are being upheld. The aimm Board is also expected to contribute towards the success of aimm, to act as a conduit to increase membership, prevent loss of membership, participate in initiatives and working groups and share their individual expertise into aimm, to help the Executive and members to gain benefit from their expertise.
The elected Board members make collective decisions that will affect aimm’s direction. No single Board member can influence the direction of aimm without full Board approval.
The aimm 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
- Giving direction and guidance to the Executives activities
- Policy changes
- Budget approval and financial governance
- Where required, approve membership applications
- Set and monitor aimm’s annual objectives & KPI’s
- Where required adjudicate on members’ conduct and the aimm Code of Ethics when appropriate
