About Ana Alvarez-Holmberg. Ana, as a project management and training champion and innovator, distinguished herself through her service to both PMI-MN and ATD-GTC. Her untimely passing in September, 2005 at age 46 was the catalyst for members of both professional associations to create a scholarship in her honor.
"Ana’s family in Peru and I appreciate the efforts of PMI and ATD-GTC to honor her with a scholarship. She was highly-dedicated to her professional life and continued learning, and this is a wonderful way to remember her," said Loras Holmberg, Ana’s husband.
Sponsored by PMI-MN and ATD-GTC
