WHAT DOES BECOMING A DIRECTOR MEAN?
The role of a POPAI Director is to help shape POPAI ANZ's current and future direction. POPAI directors agree to an initial two year term, with a maximum of four years.
Directors are elected on an unpaid basis and provide their guidance and expertise to the General Manager to help grow the association and advise and assist with operations, with each Director to be given an area of focus for the upcoming term following their election. Board directors are also responsible for the financial sustainability of the Association.
There can be a maximum of 10 directors on the POPAI Board at any one time – eight (8) elected, two (2) by special invitation of the Board.
The Board currently meets once a month in Sydney to approve the P&L report and discuss and approve action points and any other business. Directors not able to attend in person are given the option to dial in, however, each director is required to attend a minimum of nine (9) Board Meetings each year, and attendance in person is preferable.
Board Directors are encouraged to attend as many POPAI events throughout the year as possible, giving them the opportunity to talk with and learn from colleagues across all sectors.
Being a POPAI Director provides a unique opportunity to ensure the Association is supporting our Members into the future and growing the retail marketing industry.
