President's message - May 2022

Craig Picture     


Hello all and welcome to the season of change.

As the foothold of spring has solidified its place for the year, we have each gotten the opportunity to witness and be a part of a number of changes and transitions over the last few weeks - in our natural surroundings as the leaves emerge from trees, buds turn to flowers, and birds start to nest, in many of our work lives as more and more companies embrace the start of a return to office, and, of course, at NCPMI as we kick-off the start of our transition to in-person/hybrid events. On May 5th, NCPMI will host a networking event officially welcoming the chapter back to in-person events. It’ll be a time to reconnect and have some fun with your fellow chapter members, some of whom you may not have seen or heard from in a while. In addition to networking and catching up, there will be games and raffle drawings, so it’ll be an event that you won’t want to miss! To register, click here!

If you’re like me, this time of year is also a time for planning, whether it’s what and how much to plant in the garden, a race or event to train for later in the year, or maybe a trip to see or do something new. As each of you thinks about your plans, I would encourage you to think about the possibility of volunteering and giving back to this great community that we’re all a part of within NCPMI. As the chapter begins the transition back to more and more in-person events, the need for volunteers to support chapter events will continue to increase. If you’ve been thinking about setting a goal to give back or putting a plan in motion to meet more people, now is a great time to jump on board and start the transition!

For many of us, the spring season has always been an exciting time, but this year in particular the season seems just a bit more special.

Best wishes,

Patty J. Dennis-Jones, PhD, PMP

Leadership CoP - Are You the Leader you Think you Are? Dealing with your inner Control Freak, Master Manipulator and Saboteur

06-06-2022 6:00 pm -7:00 pm

Great servant leaders are courageous, respectful, empathetic, inclusive, supportive and authentic. That’s easier said than done, particularly in times of stress, change, or unpredictability. Throw a pandemic in the mix and we have the recipe for disaster. We often are disconnected from our “dark side” – our inner control freak, manipulator, egomaniac, bully or saboteur. This presentation focuses on improving our self-awareness and using tools to ensure that our dark side doesn’t become our leadership style.

Fortunately, there are many proactive, preventative measures that you can take to manage damaging dark side behaviors and constantly reinforce the need to lead with respect. With tools and an action plan, you can create an effective strategy to improve your leadership and manage your dark side, even in the most challenging times.


  • Self-assessing our emotional state regularly
  • Proactively engaging to confront our dark side tendencies
  • Seeking support to help address our bad behavior early and easily
  • Tackling tough behavioral challenges

Innovation COP : Project Management in a Data Science World

06-07-2022 5:30 pm -7:00 pm
Virtual Meeting
Innovation COP : Project Management in a Data Science World


This talk is focused specifically on the intersection of PM and data science.  We don't consider how to become data scientists.  Rather we consider recommendations for ways PMs can best manage teams involved with AI, ML and data scientists.  We touch on terminology, agile methodologies, and MLOps.

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.
