Board Message - April 2024

Re-Ignite and Re-Engage for a Sustainable Future

Dear NCPMI Community,

As we embrace the arrival of April, a month that signifies renewal and growth, it's essential to reflect on our collective journey and the transformative role each of us plays in shaping the future. At NCPMI, we recognize the importance of continuously re-igniting and re-engaging our membership, propelling us forward toward a brighter tomorrow.

In our ever-evolving landscape, adaptation is key. That's why NCPMI is committed to embracing the Project Management Institute (PMI) triangle Ways of Working, focusing on Power Skills, and honing in on Business Acumen. These pillars serve as our guiding principles, enabling us to navigate the complexities of modern project management effectively. In today's dynamic world, characterized by rapid technological advancements and evolving industry landscapes, it has become imperative for professionals to continuously adapt and upskill. At NCPMI, we recognize this need and are committed to providing our members with the tools and resources necessary to thrive in this ever-changing environment.

In line with the spirit of April, a month dedicated to Earth Day and environmental sustainability, we are also proud to announce our renewed focus on sustainability initiatives. NCPMI is proud to introduce our latest social good initiative: Green Tides: Sustaining Sundarbans. This project aims to preserve the unique ecosystem of the Sundarbans, a vital mangrove forest in India. The Sundarbans, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, not only boasts unparalleled biodiversity but also sustains the livelihoods of countless communities.

The Green Tides project promotes sustainable practices like reforestation, conservation education, and eco-friendly tourism, protecting a vital natural resource and ensuring a better future. Aligned with UN Sustainable Development Goal #15, it addresses social and economic objectives by safeguarding coastal areas, creating livelihood opportunities through crab and prawn farming, and empowering local youth to lead change. Collaborating with PMIWBC and Ma Saroda NGO, the project fosters youth development, and community-driven initiatives.

Additionally, we're excited to introduce student clubs aimed at engaging the future of project management leaders. Our NextGen group is planning fun meet-up events, creating a vibrant ecosystem where learning and networking thrive. Through book clubs, mentoring sessions, and leadership events, we aim to enhance skillset, nurture talent and build a community of future-ready professionals.

Furthermore, as part of our commitment to continuous learning and professional development, we are excited to bring a series of events aimed at enhancing our members' career prospects. Our Brand and Land sessions provide valuable insights into personal branding and networking strategies, while our career workshops leverage the power of AI to help optimize resumes and online profiles, ensuring that our members stand out in today's competitive job market.

In closing, I want to express my sincere gratitude to every one of you for your unwavering support and dedication to NCPMI. As we embark on this journey of re-ignition and re-engagement, let us remember the profound impact we can make when we come together with purpose and passion. Together, we are not just adapting to change – we are embracing it, leveraging it as an opportunity for growth and innovation.

Warm regards,
Dr. Gunjan H. Arya, M.Sc., PMP®
