Volunteer of the Month

Jayme Gray - April 2016

Congratulations to Jayme, the Chapter Volunteer of the Month for April.Jayme joined the workshop team shortly after the new member orientation we held in January and has since proven to be a super star on our team. We can count on Jayme to take on a task and make it her own. She needs only be given a target date, and like any astute PM, works diligently to beat that target.

Even when she is unable to help out at one of our all-day workshops, she steps up to assist the Director with preparations ahead of the workshop.   Jayme is truly a gem and an asset to our team, no one is more deserving of this award than her.

Marcy Randall - May 2016

Congratulations to Marcy.After serving as a member of the PDD Speakers team, Marcy has stepped up to take the lead on the Speakers team.  She has found us 5 great keynotes and has also filled all the workshop slots in record time, which will enable the rest of our PDD planning efforts to be a breeze.

In addition to beating her deadlines, Marcy has aligned all the sessions to the new Triangle for PMI PDUs.  And, for the first time this year, she is making sure that we have Summaries for each workshop so that when folks register for PDD they know exactly what they will be learning.  This will drive up attendance as our registrants are now able to justify their attendance at PDD with FACTS. 


Upcoming Workshops

The chapter plans to offer many wonderful professional development classes to enhance your Project Management knowledge this year, as well as help you earn PDUs.
