ELECTIONS TO COUNCIL 2021

New Global Council Vacancies 

Since October 2018, CIMA Council has been reviewing the consistency of the size and constitution of Council to create an opportunity for CIMA’s governing body to be best placed to consider new possibilities and opportunities for the global membership and profession, and to feel confident in the exploration of new ideas and perceptions when considering matters of strategic importance.  Most recently, Council agreed to a re-distribution of constituency seats, to reflect more proportionately CIMA’s global community and profile.  

Notice is therefore given that elections will be held in February/March 2021 for the following electoral constituencies (EC). Nominations for candidates (Fellows) to fill the vacancies must be made by six or more members (three of whom must be Fellows) whose registered addresses are in the EC concerned.

EC    
EC10 East, West Central & Southern Africa one vacancy
EC16 South East Asia one vacancy

Retirements by Rotation

Notice is given that, as the term of office of the council member in each of the following CIMA electoral constituencies (EC) expires at the end of the Annual General Meeting in 2021, elections will be held in February 2021.  Nominations for candidates (Fellows) to fill the vacancies must be made by six or more members (three of whom must be Fellows) whose registered addresses are in the EC concerned.

Nomination forms for candidates for election to Council are available to download here.  They may also be obtained from the Governance department at CIMA by emailing at governance@aicpa-cima.com. Please read the guidelines, information on the role of a Member of Council carefully before completing the form.

The nomination must be received on the prescribed form by 13:00 hours GMT on Thursday 18 February 2021, and should be clearly marked for the attention of the Governance Manager.  A scanned copy of a signed and completed form is acceptable.

The Governance department will acknowledge receipt of the nomination form promptly, either through an automated process or by individual acknowledgement.  It is however the candidate’s responsibility to ensure that his/her form has been received.  In order to avoid uncertainty, it is recommended that, if candidates do not receive such confirmation, they contact the Governance department directly (email: corporate.affairs@aicpa-cima.com) BEFORE the closing date, to actively seek such confirmation.

If there is more than one candidate for a vacancy, a ballot will be conducted.  The Governance team will contact you if an election is required
