Message from Chapter President

Dear Chapter Members & Practitioners,

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you this year as PMI North India Chapter President. The first quarter was quite eventful with the new board members taking charge. There were lot of discussions and brainstorming sessions held to define the directions for the chapter. The vision is to increase the perceived value of PMI North India Chapter, by increasing the value to our chapter members.

In a recent survey conducted by PMI North India Chapter and PMI, the feedback is consistent on the need for more Networking & Learning opportunities to be provided by the chapter. Chapter currently offers 5 (five) PDU earning opportunities viz.

  1. speaking at an event,
  2. writing an article for Synergy,
  3. reading synergy,
  4. attending chapter events,
  5. volunteering.

Beyond this we have been brainstorming on introducing following new opportunities for our members:

  • Starting Webinar Series: This will help us connect will member base, which cannot travel to attend events.
  • Conduct Paid Networking Events: This events will be focused on networking, and career guidance. These events will enable participants to get more networking time than, is generally available during PDU focused chapter events.
  • Mentor-Mentee Programs: This may be needed by those, who are new to Project Management, and may seek guidance at various levels.

But, before we proceed with working in depth on each of these programs, we would like to get your feedback on these. Please visit http://j.mp/1FjeyAp to give your feedback on these proposed programs.

Apart from new opportunities, we also want to increase the frequency of PDU events, and we would need community support it. Most of the old chapter members would recollect, our most of chapter events have been hosted in collaboration with Corporates & PSUs. This has helped us to deliver free events for our chapter members. If you think, you or your organization can help us in hosting an event of 70-100 ppl, please do so. Please visit http://j.mp/1FjeyAp to share your interest to host a chapter event in your organization.

We as Chapter Board will try to work on increasing member value, and would be glad to hear any new ideas, that you believe can help in increasing the member value of our chapter members. Please visit http:// j.mp/1FjeyAp to share your ideas and suggestions for improvement.

I would also like to take a moment to apologize for the delay in releasing the Synergy for Q1 2015. I would be glad to hear your suggestions, on improvement areas, and your contributory ideas. Please visit http:// j.mp/1FjeyAp to share your ideas a nd suggestions for improvement and contribution.
