Call for PMI Nashville Board of Directors – Nominations

September 4, 2020

Hello to the PMI Nashville Community;

The Nashville Chapter has over 1500 members and is guided by your Board of Directors. The Board performs strategic planning, manages our chapter finances, and provides educational opportunities for our members to increase their skills in project management.

The recently approved Bylaws have changed the process for which volunteers become the leaders of the Chapter on the Board of Directors. In past years, a selection committee would develop a slate of candidates for the open positions and the existing Board would approve those candidates. The slate would then be sent to the members for approval.

The new Bylaws changed this process with the hope our volunteers come from a larger audience and opens up additional opportunities for our chapter members. All qualified candidates for each position will be placed on the ballot and our members will have the opportunity to select their choice for that position.

We are now seeking candidates from the entire PMI Nashville community for the following positions:

  • President-Elect (Executive Vice President)
  • Vice President Programs
  • Vice President Operations

Our current President-Elect, Elise Hudson, will assume the position of President. Anil Sawhney as Past President will move off the Board and I will become Past President.

Responsibilities for the President-Elect position include: Assisting the Board with strategic planning for the chapter’s direction, oversight of the annual Symposium project, leadership for special projects, learning the detailed inner workings of the President’s position, and filling in for the President when they are not available.

Responsibilities for the VP Programs include Strategic planning for the monthly programs and leadership for the Programs team. The strategic planning includes speakers for the monthly programs and when we are able to return to in-person meetings, the VP is also responsible for negotiating the contracts for meeting locations, food selections, and audio/video requirements.

Responsibilities for the VP Operations include Strategic planning for the technology required for chapter operations, leadership to the technology team, oversight for chapter communications, oversight for event creation, and oversight for the chapter website/updates.

Candidates for these positions must be members of PMI and the Nashville Chapter. The Nominations Committe will host a meeting on Tuesday, August 25 to discuss the open positions and election process. Check our events calendar ( early next week to register for this event.

If you are interested in any of these positions, please send an email to and include your name, the position you are seeking, contact information (email address and phone number), current resume, and why you wish to be considered for the position.

A job description for the desired position will be sent to each person and Interview sessions with members of the Nominations Committee will be setup with the candidates to ensure they meet the requirements for the position.  Prior to the start of the voting process, the Board will host a “Meet the Candidates” online meeting for the PMI Nashville community to meet the candidates and ask questions.

Candidates should submit the information no later than September 4th so that we have sufficient time to complete the interviews, schedule the online meeting, and hold the election by mid-October.

If you have any questions, please email the head of the Nominations Committee, Shannon Alpert at
