Board intern role
I found the wealth of strategic, business and project management experience in the room invigorating and it has allowed me to see and to operate at a completely different level than in my day job. The APM’s confidence in my ability to operate at this level and involve me in other areas has translated in other skills that have allowed me to progress in my day job, as well as a perceivable step up in my contributions
In 2011 I was selected as the first APM Board intern and I am now reaching the end of my time on the APM Board.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my role as the board intern. Board intern’s almost a misnomer as the only difference to a full board member is that you are chosen by the board – rather than being elected by the membership - to provide the newer project manager’s perspective. You are a full voting member of the board, and expected to contribute as such.
