BOARD ELECTIONS: The 2017 Board elections for Vice President, Vice President Finance, Vice President Communications and Secretary begin July 19 and run through August 1. Members can expect an email from PMI with a unique link for casting votes.

PMI HEARTLAND SHOPTALKS: I am proud to announce that PMI Heartland Chapter Shoptalks have been selected for presentation at PMI North American Conference in Chicago this coming October. I and co-presenter, Annemarie Foundling, from South Central Wisconsin Chapter will be presenting about Chapter level and Regional level Shoptalks.

More Shoptalks are coming with the first one of 2017 on July 27 at West Corporation. Shoptalks are exclusive for chapter members and a true benefit of membership to go behind the scenes of a local company’s project management operations and culture. Later this year will be Shoptalks at Nebraska Medicine and TD Ameritrade, with perhaps one or two more in the works.
