As I reflect on another challenging day at the office, it's days like today that I am really taken with the feeling of how HARD all of this is. I'm currently a project manager in an IT PMO, and I have to remind myself that I very purposefully went out and found this job. I truly meant to end up in the role that I am in. I may have originally landed in project management because I was an "accidental project manager", but not this time. I chose this one. While I find what I do to be very rewarding, and I find a lot of satisfaction in completing the work, this is a hard gig. We have competing priorities, a never ending to do list, and stakeholders to keep happy.
Among all of the crazy in our day to day lives as project managers, my sincere hope is that NCPMI makes things a little easier for you. Perhaps we offered something that allowed you to get your last PDU to renew your certification, for free. Maybe at the end of a long day, you were able to connect with some colleagues over dinner at a chapter meeting, to share best practices. Whatever it is, I hope you are finding value in your membership with us. I, along with the rest of the Board of Directors, are truly glad you decided to join us or renew with us. Thanks for walking with us on this journey of project management.
