As President of PMI OVOC, I would like to wish all of our members a Happy New Year and all the best for 2020.
2020 is going to be an exciting year for PMI OVOC. This is also the year that the chapter achieves a significant milestone — we are turning 35! (there is a celebration being planned — keep your eyes/ears open for more information)
We have an exciting program planned for this year, with many new activities planned in addition to our regular program. There will be monthly webinars, dinner meetings, Saturday Seminars, new program certification training, reaching out to the community by getting involved with PMIEF, as well as a program to support military veterans.
As a volunteer organization, a key component of the chapter is volunteer support. There are many different ways that you can support the chapter — one of which is volunteering to be a member of the Board. Elections for the board are coming up. We are looking for at least 5 new board members. The call for nominations will be released shortly, with elections taking place in March. If you are interested in putting your name forward for election, please contact our Elections Chair: email@example.com. An information session is being planned for late January/early February, and details will be announced shortly.
It is important to note that each board member is elected for a two-year term. Board members elect the executive (President, President Elect, Secretary, Treasurer) from amongst their number. After that the remaining Vice President positions (i.e. those not in the executive) are chosen (Programs, Professional Development, Membership, Volunteers, Partnerships, Marketing and Sponsorship, VP Special Projects). Board meetings are held monthly in the evening. The estimated time commitment is from 20 to 30 hours a month depending upon the portfolio a director is responsible for.
I am looking forward to a great 2020. Please support the chapter by attending events and volunteering. We are here to support our members, but we need your input when planning our program to ensure it meets your needs.
