Message From the President - February 2021

Greetings! I am happy to say we started 2021 in great fashion. January was Member Appreciation Month and we had a very successful event at the monthly meeting - more about that later.

We also achieved a long-sought goal of establishing a Toastmasters Club! Not only does this provide another service for our members, but was established as an open club, meaning non-PMIW members can also join. We are hoping that the Club members will invite their colleagues and friends to join Toastmasters, and then learn about the benefits of being a PMIW Chapter member.

Thank you, Maria de Borba Silva and the founding Board members. For information on how to join our Toastmasters Club, e-mail Maria at

We are happy to announce two new educational offerings - PMI-ACP Certification Exam Prep in March and PMP Exam Preparation in April. John Sherlock is the instructor. Details and registration are here on the PMIW website.

We are finalizing plans for our Symposium, which will be held virtually on April 24. This year's theme is 'Being Agile and Managing Change'. We have a dynamic lineup of speakers. Details will be e-mailed and posted on our website soon.

Finally, as we close January, which is Member Appreciation Month, I want to thank all the attendees at January's Chapter Meeting, and the volunteers who enriched our networking in the Zoom breakout rooms prior to the presentation. We had fun with a PMIW Trivia Quiz. Look for an updated version of the Quiz in an upcoming e-mail, then check back here for the answers.

Member Appreciation Trivia Quiz answers:
1.(2003); 2.(c,a,b); 3.(c); 4.(c); 5.(b); 6.(b); 7.(e); 8.(b); 9.(c); 10.(d); 11.(April); 12.(Can't Wait)

My best to you,

Peter Roggemann, President
PMI Westchester Chapter
