Spring is a time of renewal and IoIC is giving its Board a refresh - and we need able and committed members with the skills and energy to help govern IoIC.


It’s a three-year commitment (five meetings and a monthly phone call, plus any further commitments you take on – but that’s your choice), individual Board members get to get to understand the way IoIC works, the environment it’s in, its goals and its challenges, and to get to know each other and to work as a team.

It’s a voluntary role – we’re a not-for-profit organisation – but we will cover travel costs. So what do you get in return?:

  • A chance to hone your hard-won professional and organisational skills in an interesting setting and to learn new ones
  • A chance to learn in depth about the workings of the professional institute at the heart of internal communication
  • A chance to make a real difference and influence the sector you’ve chosen to make your own
  • And of course, a role that will add value to your own personal profile.

Membership, finance, professional development, insight & knowledge, awards & events, marketing, communication, governance – whatever your skill-set, the Board can make use of it.

There are six elected positions and up to three co-opted roles. These along with the chief executive and network/regional representative make an 11-strong voting line-up. The president also attends by invitation.

Chief executive Steve Doswell says: “Members who received the call for nominations earlier in the month, have you got what we need? Do you want what IoIC is offering? Will you step up and stand for the Board? It’s time to decide.

“If it’s yes, simply complete the nomination form we sent you with the names of a proposer and seconder (both current IoIC members), and a succinct 50 words on what you would bring to the role."

Deadline for nominations: 5pm this Thursday (March 31).

Steve adds: "If this sounds right for you, stand for the Board. Do it now.”
