PM² Alliance Advisory Committees

Together we go furtherTogether we accomplish more

Welcome to the PM² Alliance Advisory Committees

The purpose of the PM² Alliance Advisory Committees (ACs) is to help craft the PM² Alliance’s strategy in various domains. Advisory Committee Members (ACMs) are experts in their fields and accomplished professionals with a proven commitment to the advancement of the PM² Alliance’s Vision. 

Advisory Committee Members (ACMs) are appointed by the PM² Alliance Board of Directors (BoD). They don’t have an executive role and have no legal responsibilities related to the Alliance (not liability). However, driven by a strong sense of contribution they play an important role in serving the global PM² Alliance community from a leadership volunteer position.

    • They reflect the PM² Alliance’s international and cross-disciplinary composition, bringing unique knowledge, experience and skills to guide the organisation by providing advice, insight and experts’ perspective. 
    • They advise the PM² Alliance Board of Directors (BoDand the CEO on the management of emerging opportunities, important risks, issues or other challenges, and on improving and expanding the PM²Alliance’s programs and services for the benefit of its members, clients, partner and affiliated organisations.
