AMI board elections are set for spring

The Association of Mortgage Intermediaries has released details of its board elections that will take place this spring.

A third of the AMI board must stand for election each year and this year elections will take place in the small network, large network and large firm constituencies.

Any employee of an AMI member firm who falls into one of these constituencies is able to stand for election. To stand, individuals must complete a nomination form and be nominated by an AMI member from within the same constituency.

Nomination forms must be returned to AMI by May 8. Those individuals standing will be required to submit biographies and election manifestos to constituents eligible to vote. Ballot papers for a contested election will be sent out by May 22. The results will be announced on the day of the AMI’s annual dinner on June 19.

Rob Griffiths, associate director of AMI, says: “The AMI board is the heart of the organisation and plays a vital role in providing direction and guidance to our activities.

“Board members must be committed advocates of the intermediary distribution channel and prepared to represent not just their own constituents but the entire profession. We hope AMI members will want to contribute to the trade body’s work and shape our agenda by standing for election.”
