Message from the Chapter President

It is my pleasure and an honor to start my role as Chapter President & CEO for 2018. I am excited to continue serving you as a member of this top globally recognized chapter. We should all be proud to be part of such a successful and worldwide recognized chapter of three thousand and six hundred members. And in such a robust geography of project management professionals that are involved in leading or managing so many business sectors: medical, engineering and construction, information technology, manufacturing, federal and government, aerospace, military, and other industries.

Thank You, Chris Doyle, Past President, and all volunteers who have been involved in these different chapter projects and programs.  I appreciate the leadership Chris provided to improve our operational efficiencies through initiatives to serve your needs as chapter Members. He also supported numerous new innovations by our hundreds of volunteers that enabled improved member services through key strategic initiatives to increase overall chapter membership value.

Thank you, chapter members, Partners and Sponsors for your deep support in supporting the profession locally. Our programming is here to serve your needs, to improve and achieve your professional goals. We are grateful for your generous financial and volunteer support throughout the past year and the current year.

2018 has started with the chapter embarking on our multiyear strategic plan, focused on the following three objectives:

  • Expand market coverage
  • Deliver expert solutions
  • Drive efficiencies & engagement

And to achieve our chapter objectives, the 2018 business plan calls on:

  • Increasing & maintaining strategic improvements
  • Developing & deepening member centricity
  • Strengthening & stabilizing our organizational agility

My first step as President; The Harrington Company will be our new office support system as of February 2018. This means we have a new business office address & a nationally certified association management organization that will provide services as our direction of renewed growth.  The driving force behind this move is our strategic commitment to you, our membership, to improve operational efficiencies & membership engagement.

I am committed to our new direction & reaching out to all members. I ask you to commit with me to be an active part of this vibrant community & be willing to provide new creative ideas that expand our membership engagement by delivering engaging skills & fresh knowledge.

Thank you again for allowing me to lead this incredible chapter with you all throughout Minnesota & North Dakota.

Happy New Year!
