President's Letter June 2021
It’s summer in Phoenix, and the heat has come back in full force. The chapter typically slows down in June, July, and August as members take a vacation and get out of town to beat the heat. It is especially true this year as many people will travel after being homebound for the last year. The chapter has intentionally reduced the number of events on our calendar for the summer.
We worked very hard throughout the pandemic to switch to all virtual events and bring you events that would help you professionally and help provide you with additional activities during a difficult time. We are now looking to get back to in-person events as well. Virtual and Hybrid events will be a part of our offering moving forward. Our goal is to make all our events available to as many members as possible. The Phoenix chapter serves the greater Phoenix Metropolitan area. Still, we also serve the PM communities in most of Arizona except for Tucson and the south and east of that city.
The board is resuming in-person meetings in June. Our first in-person board meeting is on June 28th. Members are welcome to attend the open session of the board meeting via Webex and can submit questions to the board during the question-and-answer session. Register to attend remotely here.
We are working on our upcoming elections, and the nomination committee is screening and interviewing candidates for board positions. The nomination period closes on June 30th, so if you know someone or would like to run yourself, please complete a nomination form here.
If a board position seems like too much of a commitment, but you would still like to volunteer for the chapter, please fill out an application here. The Phoenix Chapter can always use more volunteers. As we move back to operating in a non-pandemic environment, we will be engaging in more social good initiatives, and we will need your help with those causes.
I hope to see you at the chapter event virtually and soon in person.
