Letter from the Board Chair

A word from the President

Letter from the Board Chair

April 1, 2022

Arizona is transitioning from a pandemic to a post-pandemic operation, and so is the chapter.  The governor rescinded the state's emergency Covid order on March 30.  The chapter board had already planned on resuming in-person meetings, and we are working on the first in-person chapter meeting in May.  To restart in-person meetings, we need to rebuild our volunteer teams.  We have had great success building out our Study Group, Mentor, and Social Good teams but not as many volunteers for chapter operations like events.   If you have the time and want to volunteer, please apply here.

We have a social good initiative we started last week for the Humanitarian mission for the Red Cross in Ukraine.  If you can contribute to this campaign, please do so here.  We plan on implementing at least one social good project per quarter and hope to have an in-person project for the third quarter.

We have two events on the calendar this month with ProjectMasters Toastmasters.  If you're not aware, the chapter sponsors a toastmaster's club where you can earn PDUs by attending the meetings.  At ProjectMasters, you learn what it takes to master the arts of speaking, listening, and thinking--while still having a lot of fun! ProjectMasters focuses on networking with other professionals, developing public speaking skills, giving and receiving constructive feedback, and enhancing your leadership skills. They are still meeting virtually, so it's a great time to test out a meeting.

At the PMI Chapter Xchange Meeting on April 22, Christopher Gentry, a PMI Phoenix Board member, will be a panelist.   This month's topic is "The Great Resignation or the Great Rethink." Join the event for what is sure to be a great discussion.

We have Miriam Spinner presenting "Positive Intelligence" at the breakfast meeting on April 29.  You can register for the event here.

I hope to see you at one of these events this month or a future in-person event as we transition to those events.
