I am extremely pleased by the confidence that Board has expressed in me to take PMI-GLC to next level of volunteer and stakeholder engagement, trusting me with opportunity to formulate and lead operational vision, strategy and direction while working on to provide higher membership.
Last night at Skyline Club in the board meeting, I was elected president for 2012 term by Board of Directors of Great Lakes Chapter of Project Management Institute (PMI - GLC), one of the largest project management member association in Michigan. I will serve as President Elect for 2011. I have been involved with the chapter earlier as Direct of Webservices and then as Vice President of Communications.
I look forward to enhancing our strategic relationships with organization and businesses leaders to highlight the importance and benefits of Project Management and role PMI-GLC plays in the region. I hope to engage more stakeholders to broaden our network of practitioners, while continuing to support a passionate and dedicated volunteer community.
I would encourage all professionals to get involved in their community or professional organizations, it benefits both, the volunteer and the community/organization. And, if you are a professional living/working in Michigan or Metro Detroit area, please get in touch with PMI-GLC at www.pmiglc.org. Let find out how can we make project and program management work for your community, organization or for you.
