Call for new Airmic Board Members — We Need You!

Published on Fri, 30/09/2022 - 12:28

The Airmic Board helps to provide strategic direction and support to Airmic.

Great boards regularly introduce fresh thinking and new opinions. Airmic adopts this practice, and we currently have three vacancies, replacing recently retired members. The main skills required are enthusiasm, commitment, and a desire to enhance the risk management and insurance community. If this is you – we want to hear from you!

The knowledge and commitment required

The Board has four in-person meetings a year – typically in London. These are usually for half a day and are often followed by an evening event. A comprehensive Board pack is provided in advance.

All Board members act as ambassadors for Airmic and are encouraged to attend the Annual Conference, where they can network informally with our members and partners, as well as the Annual General Meeting. Board members chair or co-chair Airmic committees, including audit, finance, risk management, insurance, membership, learning and events. This is something that those who are successful in their application to join the Board might like to consider at a future date. 

Each term on the Board is three years and a Board member may serve up to three terms in office.

Who is eligible to apply

We are seeking Board members who want to actively contribute to our governance and strategic direction. We encourage Airmic members to step forward to apply regardless of experience or background. No previous board experience is required – we will provide training.

To apply, please:

  1. provide a CV of up to 300 words describing yourself and your career to date
  2. provide a summary of up to 500 words describing why you wish to be considered as a member of the Airmic Board and include the top three attributes you would bring to Airmic in this role
  3. ensure that you have the support of your employer before you apply
  4. send your CV and supporting summary to me by 31 October at

All applications will be treated in confidence.

If financial circumstances could act as a constraint to your application, please still apply and indicate this on your application. Travel expenses to and from Board meetings would be considered.

How and when the decision will be made to select successful applications

A sub-committee of the Airmic Board will consider all applications in November and a decision will be made by the Board when it next meets 13 December.

Julia Graham

CEO, Airmic
