Pittsburgh PMI Welcome Message



Congratulations on a great 2014

Dear members and friends,

2014 has been a great year for our chapter, with a wealth of informative and entertaining events, access to great learning opportunities, and fun times. A few highlights from this year included our sell-out Professional Development Day; ten great chapter meetings supported also by LIG events; a host of forums, roundtables, and coffee talks; we got to go out to a ball game together; celebrated our volunteers; participated in world-class leadership development; and continually focused on how to provide great value to you, our members.

I hope 2014 has been successful for you in your profession and your life. Looking towards 2015 we will increase our commitment to helping you deliver great results. This will include increased emphasis on networking and professional growth, and working on ways to help your organizations realize greater value and impact from projects executed with excellence.

If you have recently joined our chapter – welcome aboard! Congratulations to Ryan, Andrew, Jennifer, and Kimberly – our new PMI credential holders. We hope you enjoy participating in growing your career in 2015 with us, our 35th Anniversary year for Pittsburgh PMI.

Thank you to all the members of our board for your service and contributions, and to our extensive team of dedicated volunteers. In particular to Heidi for her years of contribution to our Outreach team, Kevin for Programs, and to Fred for his excellent leadership of our Education & Certification team. Each of you have led improvements for the chapter, and made us stronger for the future. Welcome aboard to Kathy, Lorraine and Valerie, and to Fred in his new role as President-Elect.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Holidays to all.

Matt Craig
President, Pittsburgh PMI
