PRMIA members will vote-in nine permanent directors later this year. Two directors must be voted in from the Americas region; two from Europe, the Middle East and Africa region; and two from the Asia, Southeast Asia and Australasian region. Another three directors will be selected from anywhere in the world.
The idea is to ensure PRMIA is a global body. One of the criticisms of the Global Association of Risk Professionals - from which PRMIA is a break-off body - was its apparently US-centric approach.
Elections of PRMIA's first board of directors will likely take place in August. Subsequent elections will take place at annual members' meetings.
A further clause states that any director may be removed at any time, with or without cause, by the vote of PRMIA members.
