President's Message


A new year is upon us and I can’t help but reflect on all that has been accomplished and forward for what opportunity is out there for us in 2017.

What we have attained over the last year has been phenomenal. We continued to provide training and networking through our chapter meetings. Our Guest speakers were focused on providing a balanced educational platform which included technical skills, leadership and strategic business management.

Our key activity was to grow the profession in our PMP Preparation courses. Instructors provided a strong knowledge base and expertise that prepared students to become project management professionals. Both groups were able to learn and expand their knowledge through the process. As in previous years, we continue to be very successful s as our students attain their credentials in our profession.

We held our annual Professional Development Day (PDD) in October which provided networking opportunities and quality training events delivering high value to the PMI membership. I want to give special thanks to the PDD sub-committee that organized the event. The day was a grand success due to our keynote speaker Traci Duez, all the session speakers and the wonderful GTCC conference center.

We, your new board of directors and I, look to continue the momentum from last year throughout this year. We know that this is a team effort and we are always looking for volunteers for assistance and ideas. Share your energy and talents to help our chapter flourish. You can volunteer as a committee member or committee lead.

In closing, I am looking forward to the opportunities in 2017. We have an opportunity that makes me think of a Margaret Mead quote:  “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.”

Best Regards,
