Message from the President


Chapter Members,

I have good news to share with you.  This month we are hosting our 10th Annual Career Fair, where our job seeker members have the opportunity to meet with many companies and consultant firms.  It is our annual celebration of collaboration with different industry project managers and recruiters to help our members find their future career opportunities.

The other good news is the beginning of the application process for our new Minnesota Scholarship  --up to $2,500, which will be awarded annually through the PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF). Please forward the following link to your potential candidates for information and application:

https://pmief.org/scholarships/scholarship-directory/pmi-minnesota-chapter-scholarship

I am pleased about this scholarship, which will enhance our students’ project management related education and members’ career progression. It is part of our member benefits that we work hard to offer in more creative ways.

Additionally, we have the PMP®/CAPM ® Certification Prep Course this month, which is updated based on the new PMBOK® Guide 6th Edition. If your company is interested in hosting a course for its employees, the chapter can work with your company to make it happen.  Please contact us for more information.

As I do every month, I ask you to share your ideas to improve our services to our members and engage you more in our activities and projects. I have been receiving more ideas than before which motivates me to ask again and again. This is how we collaborate and engage with our members.
