Board of Directors Election Processes

PRSM is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors who are career professionals working in the industry each day as retail facilities management or vendors selling to and servicing retail facilities. The Board consists of seven retail and six vendor members who serve three-year rotating terms. Two alternates, one retail, and one vendor member are non-voting board members available to move up to a board seat should a vacancy occur on the Board during a term.

The primary responsibility of the Board is to provide leadership to the organization, enabling it to be a powerful influence in the retail facilities maintenance industry. As the legally constituted governing body, the Board oversees the affairs of PRSM; provides leadership to the profession; and represents the profession to other facility maintenance groups.

The PRSM Nominating Committee is charged with selecting not less than six qualified members in each category for the Board of Directors' elections per the Association's bylaws. The process for selecting these leaders is outlined below.
