As the holiday season begins to approach us, we start to think about how we can give back to those in need, our neighbors, our friends, and our families. PMI Westchester is marching towards achieving our objective of giving back to the community in the form of volunteering.
Back in September, we asked our chapter meeting attendees if they wanted to volunteer and what types of activities would make them feel proud to be a PMI Westchester member. We received an overwhelming positive response along with a number of amazing ideas of how we can help out in Westchester and the surrounding areas. Right now, our Program team is working on putting together a plan to have members work with a local charity. You will hear more about this upcoming event at the November chapter meeting and how you can get involved.
However, I don’t want to just stop here. Our chapter’s existence is to be a central place for project/program managers, current and future leaders, managers, executives and more to come learn, grow, and find ways to spread their knowledge outward. The more ways we find to get our known talents understood, the more people we can reach. I am encouraging our members to form your own groups, come to the chapter for support, and we will help you volunteer in your own communities.
I’m going to keep repeating the mantra of “be a part of the conversation” and reach out to any of the Board of Directors, volunteers, or members.
