JANUARY 2020

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

Happy New Year! And Happy Birthday to Pittsburgh PMI. On January 1, 1980 Pittsburgh PMI was established. We are turning 40 years old this year and we are planning some fun activities. 40 is a huge milestone and we want to keep the celebration going all year long. If you are interested in helping with any of the events please let me know. January is always a time to reflect on the previous year and to begin planning for the new changes you will make in the coming year. We are doing the same thing at Pittsburgh PMI. We have some exciting things planned already (mentoring, job fairs, and so much more). I want to challenge you in 2020 to step up and get involved with PMI. Make this year your time to make new connections and share your knowledge with others. Wishing you all a happy, healthy and prosperous 2020.

Thanks,

Kim

Winners will receive CAPM fee reimbursement, PMI Pittsburgh Chapter Membership, IPMT swag, and professional and peer contacts.

Volunteers are needed to help prepare for the event and throughout the weekend.

Company Coordinators

Your PMI chapter wants to increase the value to the companies that sponsor our members. To help achieve this, we want to identify how we can best add value within members' companies and raise awareness of education opportunities. To meet that objective, the position of Company Coordinator serves as key volunteers for our members' companies. This entails a minor commitment and offers PDU’s for participation.

If you are interested please send your name, company, and contact info to Jason.McMann@ert.com for more information. We look forward to partnering with you.
