A Word From Our President

Dear Members and Friends,

I wanted to take a moment to update you all on where we stand as a chapter. The year has been quite busy thus far and we’re just getting started. We have conducted 4 monthly dinner meetings. The chapter conducted a training covering the transitions from PMBOK 5 to 6 for our members in Plano. We also hosted a social hour and meetup during the month of April. We have worked in partnership with the University of Texas at Tyler on 4 chapter related projects. Stay tuned as updates on these projects will be provided during the monthly dinner meeting in June 2018. We are also working diligently to partner with several other area colleges and universities on project management events and activities.

One of our major events for the year is the PM Symposium in partnership with University of Texas at Dallas on May 17-18, 2018. I would like to encourage you to register for this event by clicking on this link. The symposium is geared towards Project Management and Innovation. Companies are using innovation to differentiate themselves in the marketplace. It is important to stay abreast of industry trends as a project management professional. This symposium would be a great opportunity for one to become familiar with the parallels between innovation and project management. We have several interactive sessions planned in addition to our superb keynote speakers.

Our monthly dinner meeting will be held on  Thursday, May 3rd. Vince Yauger will be our guest speaker at this time. The topic will be “When Risk Management Meets Risk Realized- Mitigation Project Impact.” If you have not registered for the dinner meeting, please do so today. Also, you can check out our calendar for additional events scheduled for the month of May. I hope to see your face in the place.


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.

Please remember to register for the 12th Annual UT Dallas Project Management Symposium while the early bird rate remains available, as this rate will be soon changing. The symposium’s theme will be “Project Management: Leading Innovation,” We have selected great keynotes speakers and presenters from across multiple industries. Check out the lineup here. I am looking forward to seeing you at one of our events in the very near future.
