April 2021 Chapter Meeting
Annual General Meeting
The Pittsburgh Chapter of the International Institute of Business Analysis holds its Annual General Meeting (AGM) every April. During this meeting, the board updates the membership on the state of the chapter. We also kick off elections for officers and vote on proposed amendments to our bylaws. We will conduct elections electronically again this year using Election Buddy.
After the Annual General Meeting, we'll close out with a Social Hour. Bring your questions and gripes!
Proposed Amendments to Bylaws
Global IIBA is in the process of making a significant change to local chapter membership. Currently, each local chapter manages its own membership and charges its own dues. In the future, IIBA Members may set their local chapter in their IIBA.org profile. IIBA Global will reimburse local chapters for dues.
In preparation for this, your Pittsburgh IIBA Board has proposed a large number of changes to our bylaws. To provide transparency, you can view a redlined version of these proposed changes below, including comments. If you have comments, please feel free to reach out to us.
Our bylaws splits board positions into elections with some in even years, some in odd years. This year the following board positions are up for election:
|Position||Latest Board Member||Current Nominees|
|President||Mathew McConnell||Mathew McConnell|
|VP of Member Services||Joe O'Keeffe
Earlier this year, Joe moved over to fill our open Secretary position.
|VP of Special Events||Michele Phillips
Michele is stepping down after several years of service to the Pittsburgh IIBA Chapter. Thank you, Michele!
Jenn is currently our VP of Marketing; she was nominated to take over Events from Michele.
|VP of Professional Development||Justin Trotter||Justin Trotter|
