Three Chairpersons are nominated by PIM members. Each Chair is elected for three years by a majority vote, with one Chairperson retiring each year. A retiring chair is not eligible for immediate re-election. In order to secure representation of all the different geographical stakeholders, there are three chairs representing the three PIM regions: The Amercias Region, the Europe, Middle East and Africa Region and the Asia and Asia Pacific Region.
The Chairs are responsible for implementing the strategies suggested by the members during the Annual Meeting, as well as managing the budget, deciding on the structure and contents of the Annual Conference, and addressing the major issues of the association.
