A Word From Our President

Dear Members and Friends,

The spring season signifies growth and renewal. Things that were once dormant become lively again. Flowers bloom, trees replenish their leaves, and the weather changes for the better. As we move into the next season of 2018, I want us to take to a cue from nature.

Let’s continue to grow and blossom as a chapter and strive to remain FOCUSed. As I mentioned last month, the acronym “FOCUS” shares the concepts which will be important to us in 2018.

Full involvement of the PMI Dallas chapter. This year, we would like for our members to become more involved in the chapter by volunteering and providing constructive feedback to help the organization grow. We would like the chapter to continue to leave a positive impression in the community so that others will see the importance of project management across all industries in Dallas and East Texas.

Opportunities to partner with other professional organizations and entities to advance our vision and mission statements by becoming the premier project management organization in Dallas and throughout East Texas.

Customer satisfaction. Ensuring our members find value in their membership to the chapter, thereby being more likely to renew their membership and volunteer their time and services to the chapter.  

Understand the expectations of our current members, potential members, and the needs of project management professionals in companies in the Dallas and East Texas areas.

Strategic Direction. Analyzing the results of the data gathered from this year to assist in developing a 5-year plan to help move the chapter forward in the future.

We remain open to listening to your feedback about the direction of the chapter moving forward. Please feel free to contact me directly via email at President@pmidallas.org to share your feedback.

During the month of February, we held our first Breakfast with the Board, which allowed us to gather feedback from our members and friends. As a board, we are listening to the requests of our members and want you know that your concerns are being heard and we are acting where applicable.

We have partnered with a graduate class at the University of Texas at Tyler to work on several exclusive projects to gather your feedback.Please take 2-3 minutes to complete this survey. This will greatly benefit the chapter.
