President's message - Mar 2023


 Simone Hamlett


Hello, NCPMI Family!

I am one of the newest members to the NCPMI Board of Directors and I am humbled to serve NCPMI’s diverse population of Project Leaders who daily add value to business functions and communities.

One of my responsibilities is to ensure an engaging and relevant Chapter Meeting and Careers Workshop experience for you; members, speakers, and guests.

We don’t take the time that you spend with NCPMI for granted. The time that you invest with us is precious and we want to make it count for you.

My team and I are completing the remaining program events, filling the calendar with topics that you requested. My ask is that you help us, help you. Each month after the Chapter Meeting you are given an opportunity to provide feedback. Don’t be shy about completing the general comments field with your ideas and solutions on how to make NCPMI programing the best it can be for you.

An area that is a hot topic is Hybrid Meetings. We are currently investigating event management solutions that allow us to provide a quality in-person and virtual attendee experience. I am confident that we will have a solution before the end of the year. Thank you for your patience.

Here are a few upcoming events for you:

March’s Chapter Meeting (Virtual), with speaker Dr. Kaali Dass

April’s Chapter Meeting (In-Person Only), with speaker Lt. Colonel Mike Erwin **Note a portion of your registration fees will be donated to his non-profit Team RWB.

Brand & Land Workshop – May 6 (registration not yet open), This is a one-day 5hr. weekend event that teaches Project Leaders how to improve personal marketability.

Finally, March 8th is International Women’s Day, and the theme is #EmbraceEquity. I encourage everyone who reads this post to support equity within your circles of influence, as well as challenge gender stereotypes, understand bias, and speak out against discrimination. Let’s #EmbraceEquity – together!
