We would like to thank everyone who came out to celebrate PMI’s 50th and our Chapters 40th Anniversary Party in October. Thanks to everyone who attended including the many chapter members who were attending a #PMIGLC event for the first time. We were thrilled by the overall turnout (150+) and we hope to see many of you again at our future #PMIGLC events.
The Project Manager who organized the party was JoAnne Jachyra, who is also the Chapter’s Director of Community Outreach. JoAnne worked tirelessly with minimal notice to pull off an amazing event – which is what happens when you hire a PMP to run a project! Thank you, JoAnne and everyone on the team who supported our weekly calls (Jeff Adams, Srini Pinnamaneni, LeighAnne Martin, Gia Todd, Nick Beneker, Michele Patera, Steven Ventura, Anthony Amairaj, Gil Rollins, Kent Potts, and Minimol Mathew).
It was quite a party! We had a champagne toast, anniversary cake, buffet dinner, PMI 50th anniversary buttons and temporary tattoos. We also had six recruiting firms on hand including Blue Chip Talent, GDI InfoTech, Modis, Mi-GSO/PCU3ED, Recruitment Management Consultants (RMC), Career Coaching provided by Purposeful Pursuits, professional headshots provided by Scott Gidley, linkedin.com advisor Chrissie Wywrot and guest speaker Michael Milutis presented “Finding Your Place in a New, Digital World”. Not to mention that Gia played some great music throughout the evening.
Thanks to our special guest from the PMI Board of Directors Caterina (Cathy) La Tona Immediate Past Chair at PMI. Cathy has been a strong supporter of the chapter and has become the official #PMIGLC anniversary cake cutter, we’ve had two cakes this year. Some of the photos are available online in our photo album here.
