A message from APMP:

APMP’s Professional Ethics Committee (PEC) is searching for volunteers to serve on its committee immediately. The purpose of the PEC is to review ethics and conduct complaints brought against APMP members for potential disciplinary actions or forgiveness.

As you are all aware, APMP continues to rapidly grow its membership and participation, and further cement its standing as the leading membership and certification organization in the industry. In order to maintain that standing, we must hold our members to both ethical standards and conduct standards as professionals and APMP members. A necessary function to achieve that goal is to adjudicate complaints against members.

The PEC will review these complaints and recommend disciplinary action or forgiveness to APMP’s Board of Directors. Preference will be given to APMP members who are:

  • In good standing as current members,

  • Fellows,

  • Participate in the bid and proposal process every day, and

  • APMP certified

Because of the nature of the PEC, the confidential cases it will hear, and its potential recommendations to the APMP Board of Directors, we will not publicize members of the PEC. If selected, PEC members will be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement about the activities they hear.

Service will require no more than five hours a month. Applicants who are able to demonstrate objectivity in their application will be more highly considered. Members who have competing interests with APMP will be unable to serve on the PEC.

To be considered, please send an e-mail to PEC Chair and APMP CEO with a 250-word (max) description explaining why you want to serve and your views on fairness and confidentiality.

Please send the e-mail no later than 5:00 PM EDT US Friday, July 1, 2022.

Initial selections will be made by July 16, 2022. Those who are selected will receive five APMP CEUs per year.

Thank you.
