About the Board of Directors  

PRSM is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are career professionals working in the industry, selling to and/or servicing retail and multi-site facilities. The 2019-20 Board will consist of 11 Directors: six retail and five supplier members who serve three-year rotating terms. In addition, three alternates, two retail members and one supplier member, serve as non-voting Board Members available to step into a Board seat should a vacancy occur on the Board during a term.

PRSM’s vision is to be an authoritative community on retail and multi-site facilities management.

As the legal body of PRSM, the Board of Directors establishes policy and guidelines and leads by setting the strategic direction of the Association. This requires knowledge and experience in business, mature judgment, vision, and the ability to influence and empower others. Members of the Board of Directors must be able to perform at this executive level as part of a collaborative team with other Board Members.

The primary responsibility of the Board Member is to provide leadership to the Association, enabling it to be a critical influencer in the retail multi-site facility industry. In addition, the member has a fiduciary responsibility to ensure that the Association functions in an ethical and legal manner in all its business practices.

Terms of Service  

An individual selected for the PRSM Board will serve a three-year term from April 2019 through April 2022. An individual selected as an alternate will serve a one-year term from April 2019 – April 2020.

The PRSM Nominating Committee is charged with selecting qualified members in each category for the Board of Directors’ elections per the Association’s Bylaws. The process for selecting these leaders is outlined below.

Nominations and applications are being accepted until Friday, December 15, 2017 (12:00 PM CST), for candidates to be nominated for the official ballot for a three-year term commencing in April 2019. The PRSM Association Nominating Committee will review each nominee’s qualifications in depth. PRSM Association Primary Members will vote on the final slate of nominees for the Board of Directors in March 2019.
