WELCOME TO THE AUSTRALIAN MARKETING INSTITUTE (AMI) MEMBER DIRECTOR VOTING PLATFORM FOR THE AMI BOARD

In 2017 AMI members are given the opportunity to elect five Member Directors to the Board of Directors. Members can vote for the Member Director candidates.

The board is responsible for governing the AMI, providing direction to management by determining the long-range mission and goals of the association, establishing AMI policies and procedures, monitoring finances and approving budgets.

AMI Directors are appointed by our members to act on their behalf in being responsible for AMI's overall business performance and compliance.

Member Directors will be elected to the Board for a period of 3 years in accordance with AMI Constitution Rule 60.1, and at the end of their term will be eligible for re-election.

Directors operate within a complex and rapidly evolving environment. They are responsible for establishing an appropriate system of corporate governance, having due regard to the reasonable expectations of members, the law, regulators and other stakeholders. They must also ensure the business develops and implements a suitable strategy for successful attainment of members' objectives in the current physical, economic, political, regulatory, technological and competitive environments.
