PM4NGOs seeks motivated candidates to join our Board of Directors. PM4NGOs promotes the professionalism of program and project management in the international development sector. We invite applications from individuals with a passion for NGO project management and a drive to influence, enable and empower development professionals around the globe. Holders of PMD Pro certification who have experienced the benefits of the standard first hand through work in the community / field projects or organizations are especially encouraged to apply.
PM4NGOs’ directors empathize with the organization’s vision and mission, are unpaid and act as advisors to the organization’s Operations Manager in their specific areas of expertise. As the organization is small, they also use their professional expertise to support and contribute to the work of the organization. Our organization relies on its Board to guide organizational strategy, fundraising, marketing, product development and fiscal responsibility. PM4NGOs directors come from the NGO and private sectors and have a range of specialist expertise including project and programme management, NGO administration, governance and law, professional training and skill building, finance, fundraising, communications and marketing and monitoring & evaluation.
PM4NGOs is a non-governmental organization dedicated to the advancement of the Project Management skills of individuals and organizations working in the development and humanitarian sectors. Our aim is to reach organizations and individuals on the ground who are making a difference, often against the odds and with minimal resources. We create and maintain best practice guidance for development professionals, certification schemes for those working in the sector and a forum for communication and discussion.
