Message From The President - November 2019

As project managers, we all know it’s a good idea to have contingencies when you’re in the planning phase of any project. PMI Westchester is no different from any other project you manage or organization in which you work. What am I talking about? Well, if you recall back in September, I said for everyone to plan on a big surprise at the November Chapter meeting and to not miss this meeting. Well...

Message from the President - October 2019

The cooler days of Autumn are certainly upon us. Nights and mornings are definitely chillier than I’m ready for after a beautiful summer. However, as time moves forward the weather changes are inevitable. Change is part of life and I’m learning more and more every day we need to embrace change, not fear it. There are certain things outside our control that are just going to happen. Yes, it can be frightening, emotional, or even scary, but if we don’t change how do we grow? It’s how we deal with change that makes all the difference in the world.

President's Letter - September 2019

While summer may be coming to a close - a point I may refuse to acknowledge - we at PMI Westchester have been working hard to bring you a hot fall line-up. We have several events going on and we want you to take full advantage of all of them. As you know, our goal is to provide as many opportunities as possible to network, learn, and volunteer. In fact, the Board of Directors is going to be doing just that in a few short weeks at PMI’s Annual North America Leadership Institute Meeting in Philadelphia, PA.

This is a VERY special year as PMI turns...

Message from the President - June 2019

As another 10-month season comes to a close, I am reminded of all the amazing changes happening at our Chapter. As I look around, I am humbled by everyone who goes out of their way to ensure our Chapter thrives. Our membership has grown tremendously, new volunteers have come up with ways to get members engaged, and we continue to find ways to bring value to our local community. I am thankful each and every day for your trust and confidence in being your PMI Westchester leader.

We recently conducted ...

Message From The President - May 2019

It’s nice to see the trees blooming, flowers re-emerging, and the grass getting greener once again. This time of year always re-energizes me as we get out of the dead of winter and into the warmer months ahead. However, we still have a lot of work to do in the next two months until we take a little time to enjoy the summer sunshine. Your Board of Directors is going to be traveling for our annual PMI Region 4 meeting being held in Detroit, Michigan. This is our chance to work with our fellow chapters to share and learn new ideas.

Message from the President - March 2019

They say March comes in like a lion and it sure has at PMI Westchester. We have announced two big events, our Annual Symposium and our next PMP Preparation class, in addition to our regular events.

First let’s talk about our 10th Annual Symposium. We have four, count them, four fabulous speakers set to come on April 6th. If you attended our 15th Anniversary celebration last March, Scott Carbonara is coming back to be our keynote and closing speaker. Scott is going to show us how to “Ignite our Team Member Engagement” especially when you are asked to do more with less...

Message from the President - February 2019

The weather seems to be confused between frigid temperatures and Spring-like days. Punxsutawney Phil may be onto something when he said Spring is coming early. However, there is no confusion going on at our Chapter, as everyone is laser focused on making sure the learning continues! You will be seeing registration opening shortly for our Annual Symposium on April 6th at Manhattanville College in Purchase, NY. We have a FABULOUS line-up of speakers coming for this event, so I hope you will be able to join us. As I mentioned at the Chapter meeting last month, our pricing will remain the same for this 8-PDU day. We will be providing details at our February Chapter meeting.

We are also gearing up...

Message from the President - January 2019

Fresh Start

Happy New Year Everyone!! I hope everyone enjoyed some time off with your families and friends. I have to admit, I absolutely love this time of year. We have the opportunity to start with a clean slate and shape the upcoming year. This is exactly what your Board of Directors is doing now. We are focused on ensuring you get the most out of your Chapter experience. Many of you are looking to get more involved and we are going to change how we help you do that this year. We are also researching speakers who bring relevant, current, and valuable information to you every month. And most of all, we want to make sure we give each of you the chance to share your own experiences and knowledge with your fellow peers through more networking and social events. These are just a couple of the things we are concentrating on. What are you going to do in 2019?

This month we are...

Message from the President - December 2018

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.
First, ...
