Eligibility Requirements for PPDM Directors
Candidates must be PPDM member
Only PPDM members are eligible for positions on the board of directors. Membership in PPDM may be as an individual or through the corporate membership of employers. Since individuals may transition between companies during their term of office, PPDM recommends that candidates obtain a membership that is independent of their corporate affiliation.
Candidates must demonstrate upstream petroleum industry experience
Directors apply their upstream petroleum industry experience to set the strategic direction of PPDM.
Candidates must demonstrate strategic planning and fiduciary oversight experience
The Board of Directors is responsible for the strategic direction of PPDM and fiduciary oversight. Directors should have clear, demonstrated skills and experience in these areas, have experience at the executive or management level, and understand the oil and gas business.
Candidates must demonstrate involvement in PPDM activities
Directors who have an established track record of direct engagement in PPDM or industry activities, committees, or workgroups are better prepared to participate in the ongoing stewardship and development of the PPDM plan.
Candidates must understand the required commitment
Directors are elected for a two-year term on the Board of Directors. During this term, Directors are expected to spend adequate time preparing for, participating in, and completing associated actions, for board meetings or agreed ancillary activities. Repeated failure to meet these expectations could result in removal from the Board. The position of director is unpaid, and Directors are responsible for their expenses.
