ProjectTalks Detroit 2017 ⋅ March 23, 2017

Have you ever listened to a really good Ted Talk? They are short, engaging, and powerful. When done well, they make you feel inspired, motivated, ready to do something different in the world. We believe that these talks can help in many areas of professional development, including our own Project Management. PMI-GLC is excited to announce a new local event where we’ll bring together a diverse set of local and international speakers to deliver you ProjectTalks – a two hour gathering of networking, learning and inspiration! 

Co-hosted by David Barrett (our fall professional development day speaker and facilitator) and Tom Keuten (our January dinner speaker and longtime Corporate Roundtable leader), this event will deliver connections, fun and 2 PDUs with your attendance.

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 4 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.
