That’s a Wrap!

As I sit here writing this letter, I am reflecting on all the amazing things that happened in the Chapter this past year; a growing and enthusiastic membership, our 15th Anniversary Chapter Celebration, a new Career and Personal Development Community of Practice, Lunch and Learns, working with groups like VolunteerNY! to show what our Chapter can offer within our community, brand new volunteers with exciting ideas, and a bowling social networking event. WOW!! All of these events would not be possible without members like you contributing every single day. You all have my sincerest gratitude and I cannot wait to see what you will do in 2019!

This month is our Annual Membership Appreciation Holiday Event and Chapter Meeting. We have a great speaker lined up at a fabulous location.

Taking Another Look

Last month I mentioned how your Board of Directors continuously looks at all our programs and events across the Chapter to make sure we are doing the right thing for our members. So, by now you should have received an e-mail for the first of our upcoming social networking events at Bowlmor in White Plains on November 19th. This event is open to everyone, including your family and friends. For only $25 per person, join us for a night of bowling, pizza, and fun! The event includes 1.5 hours of bowling, shoe rentals, as well as pizza and soda. You MUST pre-register for this event by November 15th. Check the event page for all the details!

Month of Learning

I am writing this letter as I head to the west coast for PMI’s Leadership Institute Meeting (LIM) in Los Angeles with some of the current PMI Westchester Board of Directors. This is an annual event in which PMI chapters not only from the U.S., but from other countries gather to learn from each other by sharing ideas on topics. Our goal is to take a deeper look at our chapter initiatives to see what areas we can improve upon. We are constantly looking at how to enhance our member’s experience at PMI Westchester and expand programs to advance your careers and knowledge base. After all, isn’t that what continuous process improvement is all about? ...

Message from the President - September 2018

As I stare out the window looking at the green grass, the trees full of leaves, the warm temperatures and sunshine, it’s hard to let the last weeks of summer go. It was certainly a hot one with plenty of rain at times. However, I hope everyone was able to enjoy time with family and friends making memories to last a lifetime. During this summer our new board met to start planning our next season at PMI Westchester. Let me fill you in on a few things going on...

My, How Time Flies!

I’ve been doing some reflecting on our Chapter lately and realized it’s been two years since I took office to serve as your Chapter President. My passion for both the project management industry and this Chapter has never wavered. As a project management professional myself, I face the same challenges as you on a daily basis. My goal for this Chapter was to ensure members received a value they could bring to the table the next day, hopefully making their lives a little bit easier. I’ve been proud and honored to serve you, our members, during this term. Thank you for putting your trust in me as your leader.

We have a busy line-up for you this month...

Message from the President - February 2018

Sometimes, as project managers, we go about performing our daily routine tasks just as we always have for so long. We tend not to question things because, well, we’ve always done it that way or we rely on someone else to tell us different. We forget to pick our heads up and question ourselves, “Is this everything? Am I missing something? Is there a better way of doing this?” At our Chapter meeting this month...

Message from the President - December 2017

As we approach the end of the year, it’s the perfect time to celebrate all our accomplishments this year. Our membership is soaring at 700 members, all of our programs have been well received, and we are slowly building our volunteer base. However, as we know, there is always room for improvement, and that’s exactly what I will be focusing on as I reflect on our accomplishments over the holiday.

This month we have a special event...
