NCPMI Proposed Bylaw changes 2021

NCPMI Members,
 
The board has drafted a revision to our bylaws, posted here for your review. Voting for these bylaws is now open, and will be open for 30 days, through July 15th. In order to pass, we need at least 10% of our members to vote, with 2/3 of respondents voting affirmative. Please take the time to review and vote, as what is in here impacts you as our members.
 
The two most notable changes are the addition of the VP of marketing position and removing the requirement to hold a director position before being eligible to run for VP. 
 
The VP of marketing will be an important role to help grow our chapter. 
 
The relaxing of the rules to run for the board is to allow for a more robust candidate pool, bringing in new talent to work alongside our established board members. 
 
These are the most significant changes, but there are other smaller changes as well. If you have any questions or comments, please email me directly.
 
 

Thank You

President's Message - June 2021

 Greetings fellow NCPMI members,

As we usher in the summer season, and anticipate the reopening of in-person activities, it occurs to me that we are nearly half-way through this calendar year, and I am almost a fourth of the way through my term on the NCPMI board.

I began my NCPMI volunteer journey in 2018, serving on the membership committee’s volunteer onboarding team.  In March of 2020, I was invited to join the finance team as Director of Finance, and in January of 2021, I began my two-year term as VP of Finance and Administration.   

The Finance Team Volunteers and I work to ensure NCPMI’s continued financial health and to mitigate organizational risk by facilitating contractual reviews, and compliance with chapter policies.  The finance team is comprised of 3 directors and 7 volunteers who make it possible for us to support NCPMI’s mission, goals, and objectives. 

During the first part of this calendar year, the Finance Team has completed the following activities:

  • Developed and ensured the timely approval of our 2021 operating budget
  • Completed the 2020 Federal and State filing requirements
  • Recruited and trained new finance team volunteers
  • Processed the monthly revenue and expense transaction and issued financial statements to the Board
  • Supported initiatives that allowed us to operate within a virtual environment

For the remainder of my term, the Finance Team will work to accomplish the following:

  1. Streamline and document critical business processes
  2. Implement an efficient month-end close and financial reporting process while enabling finance team volunteers to gain accounting and financial reporting experience
  3. Create succession plans for the Director and VP of Finance positions
  4. Gain a better understanding of the needs of our finance volunteers and work to provide opportunities to fulfill those needs
  5. Provide opportunities for our volunteers to utilize current skills and develop new skills

Volunteering with NCPMI has many benefits.  Some of those benefits include free attendance at chapter events, opportunities to develop leadership skills and to build a professional network.  Through my volunteer roles within NCPMI, I have met and had a chance to know some of our chapter members and members of other PMI chapters.  In addition, serving on the board has enriched my experience by providing me with continued opportunities to work closely with board members, and volunteers with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and skill sets. 

As we slowly resume in person activities, I look forward to meeting and getting to know more of my fellow NCPMI members.  If you are interested in learning more about the volunteer finance positions, you can reach me at vp_finance@ncpmi.org.  To review the benefits of volunteering for our chapter, access the volunteer web page at: https://www.pmi.org/membership/volunteer or send an email to volunteers@ncpmi.org

Many thanks to the finance team volunteers and all of the volunteers who support our chapter!

Sincerely,

Beatrice Muganda, EA, CPA, PMP

VP of Finance and Administration

Grow Your Skills

It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
