Letter from our NCPMI President regarding COVID-19

Dear NCPMI Member,

Your well-being as members, volunteers, and partners of NCPMI is important to us. In response to Gov. Roy Cooper’s state of emergency and the guidance of NCDHHS Secretary Mandy Cohen, we are taking precautionary action to increase social distancing in the effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

Through April 30, 2020, we are modifying our events using digital technology, postponing some programs, or canceling a few meetings in accordance with public health guidance. This includes cancellation of all the “in person” meetings for March and April 2020, including Chapter Meetings, CoP sessions and any other meetings previously scheduled. Our Board of Officers will continue to monitor the situation and make any required changes in course after the month of April. We request your patience as we update the NCPMI calendar and share information individually with those who have registered.

Please watch your email for details about any registrations you have. We are working rapidly to update our website and keep you informed, and up to date.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we engage with you in new ways. We have an incredibly strong and collaborative project management community, and we will continue to grow as citizens during this challenging time.


Kind regards,

Yogi Muthuswamy


North Carolina Project Management Institute

President's Message - March 2020



As I have transitioned into the role of president-elect, I have been spending time with our directors and chairs of the communities of practice teams.  In doing so, I have been thrilled to see what a strong team we have in place.  We have a team of loyal, dedicated volunteers that make these events happen throughout the year.  If you haven't been to a community of practice event, I encourage you to do so.  These events are smaller in size than our chapter meetings, and lend themselves to more targeted opportunities to connect with other like-minded project management professionals.  I look forward to the year we will spend together, making these teams and their offerings even stronger. 
I have also been thinking about what community means to me.  I have been with our NCPMI chapter since 2013, and at the time, I never could have seen how involved I would come to be in this community.  I remember walking in to the first chapter meeting and being blown away at the scale and size of the event.  Let's just say, it wasn't what I expected!  Since then, I have grown professionally and gained invaluable leadership skills through my volunteer roles within the chapter.  Along with my professional growth, I have gained friendships that will last beyond any tenure and role I have within the chapter.  

If you haven't joined us for an in-person event, I would welcome you to do so.  You are missing out on a robust community here in the Triangle, that could help you grow your network, both professionally and personally.  Won't you join us at the next community of practice event?  I hope to see you there!

Volunteer Spotlight!

Interested in nominating someone for the Volunteer Spotlight? Email with their name, volunteer position and a testimonial on their service.

Please join me in recognizing Lionel Dorismond as February’s volunteer spotlight winner.

Melvin Lee nominated Lionel Dorismond for his work as NCPMI Expense Report Specialist.

Lionel is the gatekeeper of all expense reports which are filed through Expensify Software program. He manages the expense process by receiving, verifying, and reconciling invoices and miscellaneous expense receipts. He also reconciles all credit card expenses to our monthly credit card statements and processes other expenses requiring reimbursement payment to volunteers. When matching expenses to receipts, he makes sure all expenses are charged to the correct accounting chart of accounts. As Expense Report Specialist, Lionel provides a very important service to the NCPMI and its members.

Based upon member requests, Lionel assists new VP volunteers and directors with their expense reports. He compiles all expense reimbursement data for completeness and accuracy to accounting standards, audits expenses for volunteer team members, comparing details and supporting documents, and makes an independent judgement on approvals.

Lionel feels privileged to be part of a volunteer organization like NCPMI. He has been exposed to NCPMI for a number of years and has achieved his PMP and PMI-ACP. Lionel is always eager to help others and has joined other groups outside NCPMI where he volunteers his time.

Thanks for all you do for NCPMI!

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.
