We're Looking for Volunteers

PMIGL 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. Our current openings include the following:

  • Director, Academic Outreach
  • Director, Member Retention
  • Director, Speakers

Upcoming Events  

Quarterly Breakfast Meeting - Virtual
November 18 - 7:00 - 8:00 am 

Peak Performance for Project Managers

Our worlds changed forever in 2020. Homes converted to our home-offices and Zoom became a substitute, not a supplement, for human contact.

One thing the pandemic didn’t change? The principles of peak performance. Join Scott Welle, #1 Best Selling Author and Founder of Outperform The Norm, as he shares the strategies used by high achievers and top project managers to be your best. 

This dynamic, high-energy keynote will help you raise your personal standard of excellence and give you an effortless action plan to put into play immediately.

Speaker: Scott Welle

Welle,Scott-2022ed.jpgOutperformers are not born; they’re made. We ALL have the capacity to “raise our game,” and Scott Welle has spent more than 15 years helping people do this, personally and professionally. Scott’s 8 best selling books, articles, videos, podcasts and online programs inspire hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. He has a Master’s degree in Sport Psychology, is an adjunct professor at St. Olaf University and regularly consults with top performing executives, sales professionals and entrepreneurs, as well as elite athletes, all with one common goal: to OUTPERFORM. Fox 9 in Minneapolis-St Paul has called him a “Motivational Expert.” and he was recently named the 2021 Midwest Motivational Speaker of the Year. For “fun” (and because he’s a little crazy!), Scott has completed 30 marathons, 5 Ironman triathlons, a 100-mile ultra marathon, and serves others by showing them how to tap into the mindset of challenging their self-limiting beliefs and aspiring to be their best every day.

Who’s On Your Team?
by Lisa Harvey Roach, PMP

We recently had the opportunity to vote for the members we wanted on our political team based on their views, character, and dare I say promises? Typically, in project management, we don’t get to vote on our team members, yet they are crucial to our project success. In this article, I want to discuss who’s on your team and how to handle the dynamics. Read the complete article.
