Future Chapter Meeting Kerzner Awards Presentation
Presentation of the 2016 Kerzner Award winning presentation will most likely be scheduled for some time in the fall of 2017. This meeting will be your chance to find out more about what is behind the success of the 2016 award winner. Representatives of the project will talk about the project, the value of the project to their company and what they did as Project Managers that made a difference. It will be a great opportunity to listen for the new ideas you’ve been looking for to push your own project over the top and ask questions of the people who made it a success.
