Nominations close for ITP President and Deputy President TODAY

ITP Team. 20 November 2020, 2:56 pm

Nominations are currently open for ITP's national President and Deputy President, however close at midnight tonight.

Incumbents Mike Dennehy and Anthony Dowling reach their term limits this year so a new President and DP will be appointed by our National Board in December.

The ITP President chairs the National Board, the governance body responsible for the overall strategic direction of the organisation, as well as General Meetings and other activities. It's a crucially important role, as we need a strong and functional National Board to ensure we have a strong and functional organisation.

The Deputy President assists the President and, along with the President and CEO, forms the Board's Executive - to deal with board-level matters between formal board meetings. The DP is usually involved in the subsidiary company, but this is by convention rather than policy.

Prior National Board experience is preferred but not essential, however there is an expectation that the President will have had prior governance experience.

Under ITP's Constitution, the National Board is elected by the members, with the Board then appointing the President and Deputy President at their last meeting of the year. This is being held early December.

So we're now calling for nominations for these two roles.

To nominate yourself or someone else, please send an email to [email protected] with:

  • Name of nominee
  • Member number (if known)
  • Position being nominated for (eg President, Deputy President, both)
  • Details about applicant - eg short statement on suitability plus CV or link to LinkedIn

The President's initial term is for 2 years, with eligibility for election for up to 2 additional terms of 1 year each. The Deputy President's initial term is 1 year, with up to 4 additional terms of 1 year each. Any full Member or Fellow is eligible to be President or Deputy President.

Note that the National Board is able to appoint any eligible member, whether nominated or not. However we run a nomination process to identify those who are keen to be considered for these roles.

Nominations close at midnight Friday 20th November 2020 and don't need a seconder.
