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 through August 30th. 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.
I wanted to clarify that the current by laws are always available to you on our webiste. If you want to compare the current bylaws to the propsoed bylaws, you can review the current bylaws here: NCPMI Current Bylaws
The call to action is to review the proposed bylaws in the entirety, and vote on the entire proposed body of work.

President's Message - August 2021

Hello NCPMI Members and Guests, 

REGISTER TODAY!  The chapter annual conference is on August 21st! If you haven't already registered, what is stopping you?  

According to the February 2021 issue of PC Magazine, project management is listed as one of the top 10 certifications to earn.  Once you have that certification, don't lose it!  The NCPMI Annual Conference is a premier opportunity to earn education units to maintain your certifications, refresh skills, learn new ones and network with other professionals. 

This year we are leading the PMI call to become changemakers and addressing the requirements of social distancing and trying something new with a streaming Saturday event. We have partnered with a long-time sponsor, IIL, to take advantage of their incredible virtual platform and extend the length of time our members can access the event on demand.  Through this relationship we are able to offer our chapter conference to project management professionals across the world!  What a great opportunity this provides to collaborate with other PMI members!  Fantastic speakers including Lisa Bodell, Harold Kerzner, and John Coyle will provide a well-rounded view into the future of the profession.  Our speaker lineup covers the PMI Talent Triangle, so every session is applicable to earning PDUs whether you are a project manager, agile practitioner, and/or a business analyst.   

We are stepping up our presence in social media to promote our event and offering incentives to those who register, "Like", comment, and post "I am attending badges".  Look for the LinkedIn and Facebook event pages, you may just win one of the many prizes by sharing the posts with your connections. In addition, we have joined the Durham and Raleigh Chamber of Commerce to reach a broader regional audience.  In addition, we are offering a $20 discount code off the regular price to veterans (military20).  Show your loyalty to our chapter by registering and connecting on social and local media to let others know about what our chapter has to offer!  The annual conference is one of the main sources of income that provides for many of the free and discounted membership offerings each year. 

I encourage you to reach out to and visit with the sponsors before, during and after the day of the conference.  We are blessed to have new sponsors this year, including BRM InstituteFuturethinkPlanboxPie, and Edward Jones.  Each sponsor has a special offering for the attendees.  Josh Sweeley from Edward Jones is also a new NCPMI member!  

Thank you for supporting your chapter and investing in your future!  

Please reach out to me directly if you have questions or feedback.   

Kindest regards,

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.
