Welcome to 2018!
The leadership team of PMI SA Chapter is looking forward to working closely with you this year, hearing your ideas and delivering some great activities to meet your professional needs for growth in knowledge, skills and community participation.
We started off the year with the launch of our volunteer management program in Gauteng at Microsoft on Saturday, January 20. As we are a volunteer run organization, we are so pleased with your enthusiastic response. About 50 persons attended and heard presentations on the new volunteer program and planned activities and volunteers needed in a variety of programs, including, professional development, academic outreach, social impact with PMI Education Foundation, and how we work as a chapter. We are well on our way to filling some critical positions and engaging volunteers in some special activities. We will roll out this program in Cape Town, Durban, and other areas of the country to ensure you have an opportunity to participate and network with fellow professionals. It’s not too late to express your interest. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We jumpstarted our chapter member activities on January 25 with our branch meeting in Kwa-Zulu Natal. Our branch meetings in Cape Town and Johannesburg start on February 15. Our members’ branch meetings are usually on the third Thursday of every month through November.
Don’t miss our premier PMP/CAPM Prep Workshop, which will be held at Citibank in Gauteng on February 3 and 4. We are finalizing a diverse set of events for the year. These will be posted shortly on our events page. Please consult the pmi.org.za website for details.
Look out for announcement of the dates for the PMI SA PM Summit and the Africa Regional Project Management Conference. Don’t miss out on the early bird sales which should start in about a month.
We look forward to seeing and hearing from you.
All the best for a personally satisfying year.
Dr. Lynn A. Keeys
