BRM Councils – Your Tool to Change the Future of BRM

Posted | Category: #BRMLegends, BRM Capability, BRM Community, Professional Development | Contributed

Business function leaders (IT, HR, Finance, external Service Providers, etc..) from around the world congregate to network and lead initiatives advancing the Business Relationship Management (BRM) profession through BRM Institute volunteer councils. Importantly, these councils play a pivotal role in the development of new ideas which help determine the future direction of BRM standards and profession.

BRM Institute councils have experienced new growth and recent changes in the past quarter. Take a look at some of these exciting updates and learn more on how to get involved! These councils want you and are constantly growing and evolving with rapid pace. With change brings new perspectives, direction, and growth. Therefore, we’re excited to see what value these councils will generate in the future. Keep an eye out for the contributions these councils will make towards advancing the BRM profession in their own unique way.

BRM Council

We are excited to announce Chris Lucas as the new Chair of the BRM Council. As of July, he took over the position from Arnie Wetherill. We extend our thanks and appreciation to Arnie for all his contributions to the council, and for his continued dedication to the BRM cause. Consequently, Arnie will remain with the BRM Council as a general member and secretary for BRM Institute Board of Directors.

Next, we would like to thank all previous Vice Chairs for their contributions to the BRM Council. Thanks to their hard work and dedication, the BRM Council has grown to its status of today. It will continue to thrive as it ushers in a new generation of Vice Chairs, mentioned below:

BRM Council Vision

Each new member brings their own unique experience, knowledge, and capabilities. Thus, this mix of diverse thought leaders empowers our council to execute on numerous fronts. The vision statements below encapsulate the direction of the BRM Council.

The future of the BRM profession is great and has an opportunity to become one of the most influential capabilities, role, and/or skillset within a company as it focuses on driving value, building partnerships, and evolving culture. I want to continue to elevate the role across the industry where companies that haven’t advanced their BRM capability are asking themselves “when.”

Tyrone Green

I see an expansion of traditional IT BRM into Finance, HR and other functional areas and I look forward to contributing as a Vice Chair to help support and enable the BRM community.
