The RIMS Detroit Board of Directors consists of all Officers plus the Directors-at-Large.
The duties and responsibilities of the Board of Directors are to conduct the general business of the Detroit Chapter. This typically includes election of officers, appointment of committees, approval of projects, disbursement of Chapter funds and, of key importance, setting Chapter goals and objectives. If you would like to ask the Board of Directors to consider a topic for discussion, send your proposed agenda item to our Chapter President.
The President is the CEO of the Detroit Chapter and responsible for providing leadership and motivation to all Chapter members. The President is also responsible for assuring that the Chapter operates in accordance with its Constitution and Bylaws. The duties of this office include supervision of all Chapter business and activities, official spokesperson for the Detroit Chapter, presiding over Chapter meetings, approval of Chapter budget and appointment of any Chapter committees.
