The PMT members are represented by five directors who are elected at large by the members. Each director serves a three-year term, and may be re-elected. The terms are staggered so that each year members elect one or two directors. Each director is responsible for understanding the complex telecommunications industry in order to provide effective guidance for the company. This is especially important in this time of rapid change in technology and regulation.
