President's Message - September 2021

My last message was August of 2020, during what we thought was the height of the Pandemic that surrounded our Chapter with more unknowns than knowns. Now, thirteen months later, at alarming rates in every direction, we continue to experience change and uncertainty with most conversations leading to the popular question… “Is this our new normal?”.  Personally, the quick and simple answer is “yes”, at least until something else changes. Okay, that was a little cliché, but it is our reality… “Right?”.  I think it is fair and reasonable to state that the profession, mission, and success of a “Project Manager” is to lead through an effort of change.

What a great time to be a member of NCPMI!!! The reality of what NCPMI does for you, the members, the volunteers, the students, and the emerging professionals is 100% in service and focused in providing a safe place to strengthen new (and old) Project Management skills. Another cliché… sorry, but “You only get out of it what you put into it”. I strongly encourage every member of NCPMI to make the most from their membership by getting involved with your local project management community. I have experienced and witnessed examples over the last 13 months that illustrate the benefits of change that provided platforms to demonstrate creativity through curiosity and passion that resulted in learning while expanding your professional network. NCPMI is a place where you can practice public speaking, drive a digital transformation, optimize operational efficiencies, plan projects, complete platform migrations, plan events, manage vendor engagement… etc. Yes, NCPMI is a place for “You” to learn and to build relationships and to embrace change in a way that inspires creativity.

As we continue to live in a two-dimensional world, it is comforting to know that NCPMI is here to help project managers grow. I am honored to be a part of this organization and to volunteer my time with professionals that are focused, sincere, kind, and willing to embrace the moment, regardless of the challenge. To that end, I would encourage each of you to explore volunteering so that you can experience all the benefits of networking and professional growth, all while being part of a volunteer community that will identify and act on each opportunity to redefine stability.

VP, Membership, NCPMI Chapter



As was true in the early pandemic, it seems that where we are with COVID cases, responses, and protocols, is rapidly changing. I wanted to reach out and give you an update on where NCPMI is with going back to meeting in person.

Board meetings:

The board has met three times in person for June and July board meetings, plus June strategy planning meeting. At this time, we have decided to postpone meeting in person for August, given the rise in cases and the emergence of the delta variant.

Chapter meetings:

Our intention was to test a hybrid model for our chapter meetings in October, and have a fully in person meeting in November, with a hybrid option for those that are geographically disperse. We know that we gained engagement from a lot of members during the pandemic that could now join us virtually, where coming to RTP was prohibitive in the past. We don't want to lose those members, so are investigating the hybrid model.

We will be monitoring progress of cases before making decisoins to come back in person in October.

General guidance:

One of our board members, Damien Perez, VP of Certifications is a school adminstrator for his day job. We are so lucky to have his guidance for our COVID protocols. At this time, he is leading our COVID response by helping us to adhere to local mandates, as well as NCDHHS guidelines for safety. Before any in person meetings are held, we will ensure we are following all guidance and mandates appropriately.

I for one, really miss the fellowship of our in-person meetings. We will continue to watch and make the best decisions, but please know, we want to be back in person.

Thank You

Jessica Johnson, PMP
President, NCPMI

Communications and Public Speaking CoP: Journey to Self-Actualization—Finding Your Passion

09-28-2021 5:45 pm -8:00 pm
Virtual Meeting

So many aspire to find their passion, yet many people settle in their daily lives. How can we find those interests that inspire us, that provide light, that moves us each day? Throughout my life, I was searching for some meaning, some sign for my purpose. Turns out, the signs were all around me! Once I recognized the signs and pursued opportunities, I began to experience that passion and fulfillment! Make no mistake, this is not a self-help seminar, nor will I direct you to any personality tests. This is a sharing of my journey and how I was finally able to recognize my true passion and abilities. Maybe through sharing my story, I can help you find your true passion too!

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.
