Letter from the President - December 2020
Letter from the President
It’s December and the Holiday Season is upon us. Many started early with decorating and putting up trees to get into the spirit of the season.
The Board of Directors and I would like to take a moment to wish you all the best through this holiday season and to give special thanks to all our volunteers that helped us maintain the course through a difficult 2020.
This year was challenging in many ways. Many of us had to adapt to working in new ways. Whether you were new to working remotely or had to adapt to everyone else working remotely. New skills were learned and shared.
I hope you had the chance to join one of the many webinars the chapter offered this year. The chapter was able to quickly pivot to virtual events and by December 31st, 2020 will have offered 131 events this year. I am proud of the volunteers in the chapter that made this possible.
We are going to continue the trend into the new year. The board met in October to begin our strategic planning for 2021. Below are some of our objectives for 2021:
- Creation of a student chapter
- Establish a Communities of Practice
- Establish a Formal Mentorship Program
- Organize 2 Community Charity Events
This will be the 42nd year for the chapter and we will continue to bring you relevant training and events to enhance your Project Management and Career skills as well. All of our initiatives for 2021 are derived from the feedback from you, our members. Please continue to provide that feedback. I would like to like to thank the board and all our volunteers for their hard work this year.
