What a beautiful time of year it is in Pittsburgh in the Fall. The leaves are turning, the nights are cooling, and it’s great weather for camping and hiking with friends and family. Hopefully it’s also great weather for a mud run with kids (highlights to be shared at October chapter meeting).
We’ve also kicked off our program year with a great start, with excellent reviews for Jesse Fewell’s Agile session and Carl Pritchard’s always great insights into Risk Management, at our September chapter meeting.
I hope you’ve already registered for next month’s Professional Development Day, as we’re likely to sell it out again fast this year. We have a great crop of speakers and panelists, hand-selected by a dedicated team of volunteers who reviewed a large number of submissions to choose the best material for you.
A welcome surprise (for me) was an invitation to fill-in for our October meeting, as our scheduled speaker unfortunately had to cancel their session. As many of you know, I am an advocate of value-management practices, so I look forward to sharing some techniques and discussion with you, to help you make sure each of your projects is focused on delivering great results both for your organization, and for you as a professional Project Manager.
Welcome to our new members and congratulations to our new PMI credential holders. For all of you I hope your projects and programs have engaged and motivated teams doing great work, and I look forward to seeing many of you at our upcoming chapter meeting.
President, Pittsburgh PMI Chapter
