Hello NCPMI Members and Guests,
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 Institute, Futurethink, Planbox, Pie, 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.
