www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 5 FIRST WORD At our World Congress in October I will conclude nearly 12 years on State Councils for the AIPM, which included successive terms as a State President, seven years as a Director on the Board, and the past four years as Chair of the Board and National President. I feel immensely privileged and grateful for the opportunities to ser ve in these capacities. I have learnt a lot through these various roles and gave my best efforts to put the AIPM on a strong footing for its progressive development. Over the past four years, in particular, the AIPM has bedded in a new constitution and sound governance structure. We have initiated new developments like the Council of Fellows and focused on driving delivery of our five- year strategic plan, which has included developing a complete organisational performance monitoring approach using a Balanced Score Card. We also now critically review Board performance to ensure all our WE RECENTLY RESTRUCTURED OUR NATIONAL SUPPORT OFFICE TO BUILD AN EVEN STRONGER AIPM Passing the baton Directors, individually and collectively, meet the AIPM’s organisational objectives we promised and are accountable for achieving. Another important milestone was the restructure of our National Support Office to build an even stronger AIPM for the future. The third-largest national project management association in the world, the AIPM now has a significant presence on the global map. This is strengthened by our membership and strong relations with the International Project Management Association (IPMA), an umbrella federation of around 60 associations from around the world. The AIPM also launched, and is Secretariat for, the Asia Pacific Federation of Project Management (APFPM), a regional organisation comprising 12 Asia-Pacific countries. Through these initiatives, the AIPM has been acknowledged as a significant contributor to the global project management community, capped off this year by hosting the 25th IPMA Project Management World Congress in Brisbane. Credit must go to our current and past Board of Directors, which has included State Presidents and staff from the National Support Office. Together, all have contributed hugely to shaping and strengthening the AIPM we have today. The best results are achieved when people work together and give those in leadership roles the support they need to confidently negotiate the new frontiers of progress. I appreciate all the support I have been given, especially through initial tough reforms and our efforts to branch out across the globe. I wish our incoming President, the Board of Directors, National Support Office Staff, our State Councils and all Members the very best for the continuing growth and development of the AIPM. Dr Bill Young National President
