Spring message from the PMI OVOC President

They say that age is just a number but I would beg to differ. In 30 years, PMI OVOC has grown from our modest beginnings in 1985 to a strong established chapter and we are changing the face of project management in the region.

Throughout 2015, we will be celebrating our 30th anniversary by giving back to our members. Each event will hold a draw with one winner and all attendees will be eligible to win a pre-paid credit card. On May 7, 2015 we are also hosting our annual ABM where we'll toast our anniversary with champagne and some special birthday treats.

PMI OVOC has achieved greatness in the past 30 years; imagine what we could do in the next 30 years to come. Stay along for the ride and celebrate this monumental occasion with us because we are committed to delivering. Read Sharon Burke's full message here.
