PPDM Expectations of Directors
Directors must be independent of undue influence
Directors must represent both the needs of individual data managers and the needs of the industry. PPDM values this multifaceted input. Directors cannot simply use their position to advance the agenda of the segment of industry that they know best, nor can they use their position and influence to solely advance the needs or interests of their company.
Directors must be neutral and avoid any conflict of interest
Directors, like PPDM members, must sign the PPDM Code of Ethics before participation in PPDM activities. Candidates must declare any existing conflicts of interest and must avoid potential conflicts of interest or violation of applicable antitrust legislation during their term in office.
Directors must fulfill the Position Description
Directors standing for re-election must demonstrate that they have fulfilled most of the elements of the published Position Description.
Directors must protect the confidentiality of PPDM information
Directors have access to confidential information and must ensure that this information is not disseminated to others, even to those in positions of authority over them, in any form, without the consent from the Board of Directors.
Directors must abide by PPDM policies
In the context of their participation in the Board of Directors or other PPDM activities, Directors must follow its policies and practices.
Directors must represent PPDM
Directors should take every opportunity to meet with members of PPDM to understand their needs and promote the benefits derived from PPDM membership. Directors promote the benefits of PPDM to the energy industry in the broadest sense and seek financial resources and volunteer participation in support of PPDM.
