Happy New Year! I hope that you are safe, healthy, and energized for an awesome 2021!
As I wrote in December, our Chapter is alive and well. We will continue virtual programming for the first half of the year (at least). We are planning for hybrid programming (in-person & virtual) in the second half of the year! Check out these exciting (and free!) upcoming events:
1/20 - Women in PM Book Club ('The Confidence Code')
1/28 - Schedule Management in Pandemic Era (including an international panel of speakers)
2/5 & 2/6 - Virtual Job Fair
2/16 - How Much Change Management is Enough
2/17 - Annual State of the Chapter
Our goal is to be the 'go to' place for all things Project/Program/Portfolio Management in NE Ohio. Lofty, but achievable with your involvement! We need support and participation to make this happen. Attend our virtual meetings; post about it to social media; talk about it with your colleagues; and consider joining us as a volunteer (send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you have a suggestion for a meeting topic, content to share, or a great presentation you heard, please send it. We are always looking for innovative ideas and dynamic speakers to enhance our programs.
Speakers for our Chapter's Events
Our PMI Chapter welcomes proposals from passionate speakers interested in sharing their experiences, knowledge and expertise on such topics as general business and strategy, leadership, project management, and technical or industry-specific specialties. Our Professional Development events provide professional development units (PDUs) of educational information necessary for those attendees maintaining certification designations. Speakers are also eligible to claim PDUs for their creation and delivery of the presentation material.

Make your mark on our PMI Chapter and the profession. As a member, you can volunteer to work on and to lead activities that advance the profession and support the chapter business operations by joining our chapter volunteer community. All volunteer openings are managed by the PMI Volunteer Relationship Management System (VRMS). This system includes the ability to search for opportunities, view details about each role and apply online.
