DMA board to step down as part of restructure

The Direct Marketing Association is undergoing a restructure that will see the current board step down in November. The changes follow a strategic review which began earlier this year.

A smaller executive board will be formed and have overall responsibility for the administration and operation of the DMA.

The new executive board will include a chair, deputy chair, five representatives from the advisory council and two representatives from the regional council.

The advisory council will focus on the strategic issues facing DMA members and the direct marketing industry and will co-ordinate a number of sub-groups looking at these specific issues.

All senior DMA members are eligible to stand for the advisory council. The DMA has sent out nomination papers to all the electoral classification groups. August 29.
