AMAPCEO Delegates Approve New Governance Structure

Publish date: Wednesday, June 08, 2016 update

Earlier today, AMAPCEO Delegates voted overwhelmingly to adopt a report from the Board of Directors on a new governance model for the Association. The new model will begin to be implemented this fall, when AMAPCEO members will have an opportunity to directly elect their new, expanded Board of Directors.

Watch a video overview of the governance changes 

The vote concludes a years-long process of considering changes to governance. The new model features a unified Board of Directors, elected from within twelve geographic Districts, as well as four Executive Officers elected by Delegates. It is designed to help build a stronger AMAPCEO by focusing resources and energy on providing member services.

A new “Activists and Leaders Forum” will also be introduced starting in 2017. The forum will bring together a broad group of activists three times each year for skills development, educational workshops and relationship building opportunities.

“This is an historic day for AMAPCEO,” said President Dave Bulmer. “Through our expanded Board of Directors, and through initiatives like the Activists and Leaders Forum, we can invest more in developing our activist base, serving our members and strengthening our union.”

You can learn more about the new governance model by reading the Board of Directors’ report “Building a Stronger AMAPCEO.”  You can also learn more about the history of AMAPCEO governance review and the case for change on the Stronger Governance webpage.

Over the coming months, we will be communicating much more information with members about the transition. Stay tuned to your email and your local workplace bulletin board!
