What's involved in being a director
These are voluntary roles requiring a commitment of at least two days of effort each month. This effort is spread across the month, rather than being two individual days; typically our directors spend about four hours per week across evenings and weekends, which varies with workload. General requirements of being a director are:
- Serve a two year term and be able to commit a minimum of two days per month
- Contribute to strategic direction of IIBA UK
- Advocate on behalf of IIBA UK
- Lead and participate in chapter initiatives
- Organise and host at least one webinar per year
- Attend all regular board meetings and other events
- Participate at chapter events
- The core purpose of this role is to ensure that processes and systems are in place for the effective running of the chapter, such as website functionality and development, Volunteer, Event and Document Management.
- A key deliverable is the planning, execution and evaluation of the annual IIBA UK Business Analysis Survey.
- The Operations Director is a pivotal member of the board, ensuring essential processes are in place and documented without becoming time consuming or cumbersome.
- The Operations Director is the face of the board to new and existing volunteers, ensuring an efficient and personal on-boarding experience and effective use of their skills and resources.
- The Operations Director also tracks and measures relevant KPIs and produces annual budget for the operational aspects of running of the chapter.
Communities Director - Midlands
- Set the strategy for community activity including knowledge sharing and community events within the assigned geographic area, working closely with the individual branch leads and volunteers.
- Plan, arrange, promote and co-ordinate chapter events, including sourcing speakers in the assigned geographic area.
- Work alongside other directors to co-ordinate webinars and other on-line events.
- Increase the amount of knowledge sharing, ensure all branches of the IIBA UK are able to benefit from the learning and knowledge of each other.
- Create a cohesion among the branches and enable a UK wide inclusive community, using technologies and techniques such as virtual collaboration.
This is an excellent chance to make a difference to IIBA UK, and I do hope that you'll consider standing. Should you need to know more about the roles - or if you'd like an informal chat about standing - please don't hesitate to contact Liz Calder at [president at iibauk.org].
