Charles Mills joins APM Board

CPC Programme Director, Charles Mills, has been voted onto the Board of the Association for Project Management (APM), the Chartered Body for the Project profession in the UK.

Running throughout July to October this year, APM asked its voting members to consider the election statements of 17 nominees and select their preferred candidate.

With the highest voter turnout in APM’s history, the election brought two new ‘elected trustees’ and one re-elected trustee to APM’s Board.

On 16th November 2020, the successful candidates Charles Mills, Karen Whelan and Dr Jon Broome (re-elected), attended APM’s Annual General Meeting and were formally accepted onto the Board for a period of three years.

They join seven other board members from across the project management profession who will lead and drive APM’s strategic direction and future activities.

Charles Mills said “I am thrilled to have been voted onto APM’s Board. With 42 years of project management experience, I am confident I can utilise my expertise to build upon the great work that APM has been doing in recent years, not least its Chartered Body status.

However, there is still some work to do to ensure that Project Management is given the same unequivocal recognition alongside ‘architect’ or ‘engineer’ within the project delivery space. Over the next three years, I will be committed to guiding and supporting APM as it continues to be a beacon for the profession”.

Debbie Lewis, chair of APM, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Karen, Charles and Jon to the Board. We’re also grateful to our members for taking the time to cast their votes for the people they want to lead us going forward.”
