In the new year, some our goals include:

·     Optimize chapter members experience through improvements to our signature events including Symposium and Professional Development Day.

·     Host the PMI Region 4 Leadership Institute Meeting were chapter board members from 6 states will meet for a weekend in Detroit with PMI leadership to share ideas, which will offer several volunteer and network opportunities for PMIGLC chapter members.

·     Ensure dinner meetings have a higher caliber of speakers, introduce a new Southfield and Detroit locations and offer two PDU’s per dinner meeting.

·     Increase our presence in academic and military communities, increase recruiter involvement and employment opportunities for our members.

·     Revamp our website to increase functionality – including mobile-friendly website, mobile app, and PayPal options.

·     Provide PMP, PMI-ACP, PMI-RMP and SAFe training. 

 

As we enter our 40th year, we would like to thank our membership for your continued support and would encourage you to become active as a volunteer within our chapter by browsing out volunteer section at: https://pmiglc.org/Volunteer_Opportunities.

 

 

Sincerely,
