Chris Pierce

January 2018 - Chris Pierce 

The PMI-MN Chapter is honored to present Chris Pierce as our January 2018 Volunteer of the Month. Chris took over the Volunteer Services Chair position in 2017.  At the time there was no one still familiar with VRMS and we were behind on listing available volunteer positions. Chris got us rapidly caught up and also began maintaining the volunteer listing page on the PMI-MN web site. With only days on the job, she obtained some able volunteers for her team, put on a Volunteer Fair and continued to develop the committee. By the end of 2017, Volunteer Services had put on 2 Volunteer Fairs, found a sponsor for both fairs, and put on 2 summer events the sponsored Picnic event and the Saints event. Both summer events provided family fun for volunteers and members. Chris’ team took on the 2018 President’s Gala event for volunteers and most recently provided another sponsored Volunteer Fair. Chris is also an able speaker and author, and has provided presentations on the PMI-MN Outreach and webinar circuit.

PMI-MN would like to thank Chris for her time and dedication.

Congratulations Chris!!!
