PMIGLC Members Honored by ESD

PMIGLC honored two of its longest serving board members, Neil Goldman and Gil Rollins, at the Engineering Society of Detroit’s (ESD) annual Gold Award ceremony on March 29th.  Dr. Bill Moylan presented Neil and Gil each with the “Distinguished Leadership Award” for their exceptional service with PMIGLC.

Neil Goldman received his award for the numerous leadership positions he has held within the chapter, such as President, VP of Finance, VP of Membership, VP of Education, and currently serving as the Director of Seminars.  Gil Rollins has been a member of PMIGLC since 1996 and is the longest continuously serving member of the Board of Directors.  Gil is currently serving as the VP of Finance, and has previously held the positions of VP of Membership, VP of Administration, and the Director of Financial Operations.

The Gold Award ceremony, which was held at the Henry Ford College in Dearborn, recognized outstanding members from professional associations within the surrounding area.  Awardees from local associations included the Society of Women Engineers, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, the International Council on Systems Engineering, and several other engineering societies.

Professional Development Opportunities

 On-Demand Access to Monthly Meetings and Seminars

PMI-GLC Needs Your Help to Support Current Initiatives and Grow the Chapter

PMI-GLC is always looking for members who want to be more involved with the chapter. This is a great way to support the growth of the chapter and earn valuable PDUs for re-certification. We are currently in need of volunteers for a number of committee projects in progress. In an effort to match your interests and skills with the Chapter's needs, we need some information from you. If you are interested in helping out on one of our committee projects, please fill out the Chapter Volunteer Information Form and send it to our Director of Volunteer Program  and you will be put in touch with the committee chair. Thank you for your interest in the GLC!

Don’t Miss PMIGLC-Branded Social Media Photographs at Upcoming Events!

Be sure to take advantage of a PMI-GLC brand improvement initiative that continues for only 2 more events in 2017. A trial was conducted in late 2016 to provide no-fee PMI-branded social media photographs to increase chapter membership value. Many have taken advantage of the offering, so the PMI-GLC Membership group will continue the offering at monthly meetings and Symposium through April 2017.

When you register for the event, do so early - weeks before the event. If photograph seats are still available when you register, also select the option to have your photo taken in front of a PMI-branded backdrop. Beginning with Symposium in April, larger GLC events may possibly be staffed with a professional photographer that will charge a nominal fee for this service.
