President's Message - January 2022


Greeting NCPMI Members and Friends,

Welcome 2022! Transformation is a highly utilized term in business and within the field of project management. Here at NCPMI, we have embraced transformation in our personal and professional lives. More and more our skills and competencies as PMs lead us to having pivotal roles in our communities. Our ways of working and thinking have evolved. It’s all about change.

The NCPMI Board of Directors works with the dedicated volunteers of our organization to delivery many services and experiences to aid in our collective development with the goal of making us all effective change agents. We heard your feedback about the desire to resume more in-person events and ended 2021 with a series of successful events that allowed us to connect outside of the virtual format. Our goal for this year is to keep the advantages of virtual events, while safely bringing back face-to-face engagement.

In 2022 NCPMI will continue its commitment to delivering valuable professional development opportunities. We provide these opportunities via many events that are tailored to your individual needs. Look for NCPMI to leverage and integrate PMI’s broader product portfolio within the Professional Development delivery model. Whether you are new to Project Management, interested in Agile methodology or have a need to improve problem solving skills, PMI has a solution for you. The PMP certification has always been the flagship product for PMI and now there are many products available to address a wide range of Professional Development needs for PMs as well as others in our ecosystem of change makers.

NCPMI has been a strong organization as it relates to Social Impact. It is with great anticipation that we bring more of this focus to the membership while aligning with PMI’s global strategy. Whether it’s academic programs, non-profit community organizations, project management in schools or charitable interests we are making social impact. Join us this year for a social initiative or create an opportunity as a volunteer.

Our support of Project Management as a profession and the success of our members is very important. The contributions of our outstanding volunteers is the foundation of our work. At this time of renewal and optimism, I encourage us all to continue embracing change, transformation and all aspirations related to improving our communities through the Project Management Profession. Let’s set our goals and expectations for a great year of personal and professional growth.

Happy New Year!

As was true in the early pandemic, it seems that where we are with COVID cases, responses, and protocols, is rapidly changing. I wanted to reach out and give you an update on where NCPMI is with going back to meeting in person.

Board meetings:

The board has met three times in person for June and July board meetings, plus June strategy planning meeting. At this time, we have decided to postpone meeting in person for August, given the rise in cases and the emergence of the delta variant.

Chapter meetings:

Our intention was to test a hybrid model for our chapter meetings in October, and have a fully in person meeting in November, with a hybrid option for those that are geographically disperse. We know that we gained engagement from a lot of members during the pandemic that could now join us virtually, where coming to RTP was prohibitive in the past. We don't want to lose those members, so are investigating the hybrid model.

We will be monitoring progress of cases before making decisoins to come back in person in October.

General guidance:

One of our board members, Damien Perez, VP of Certifications is a school adminstrator for his day job. We are so lucky to have his guidance for our COVID protocols. At this time, he is leading our COVID response by helping us to adhere to local mandates, as well as NCDHHS guidelines for safety. Before any in person meetings are held, we will ensure we are following all guidance and mandates appropriately.

I for one, really miss the fellowship of our in-person meetings. We will continue to watch and make the best decisions, but please know, we want to be back in person.

Thank You

Jessica Johnson, PMP
President, NCPMI

Communications and Public Speaking CoP: The Civics of Leadership

02-22-2022 5:45 pm
Virtual Meeting

With focus placed on accomplishment of the task, teams are usually able to achieve their goals. Imagine the impact if intentionality was thoughtfully placed on HOW we accomplish the task? How do you think people would feel when the task is completed? If you are the driver for your team, let’s consider how it would feel to be a passenger.  


Virtual Workshop Series Part III presented by Apex Systems with Live Q & A: How Teams Make Exceptional Decisions – Workshop 5

Free for members (be sure to login to website); $15 for non-members


NCPMI in partnership with Apex System is offering a Virtual Workshop Series on Time Management and Communications for All Practitioners. You must watch the on-demand webinar here prior to attending this live question and answer event. These sessions will be free for NCPMI Members and hosted online via ZOOM

Webinar Overview:

Quality decisions are critical for superior organizational performance, while poor decisions lead to poor performance. Research finds that teams make superior decisions over individual managers or executives 75% of the time. If an organization wants better decisions, they need to use teams to make the majority of those decisions. However, good decision making doesn't happen just because it is a team making those decisions. Science finds the very best decision-making teams use several strategies to outperform mediocre and dysfunctional teams. So, how do leaders get their teams to make the best decisions possible?


Leadership CoP - Effective Leadership—What’s the Secret? (And it is not what you think!)

03-10-2022 6:00 pm -7:00 pm


Leadership. A mysterious element of management. 

Leadership has been written about for decades. Leadership is the topic of hundreds of workshops led by smart people like Harvard’s Shawn Achor. 

Thousands of consultants will gladly explain the characteristics of leadership and its many components.  I have sat through many of these presentations, had heated intellectual discussions, and even read more leadership articles and books than I care to admit. 

But, as far as I can remember, no one has ever talked about the one thing that you can’t overlook.  The one thing that when overlooked leads to failure.  If you have any hope of becoming an accomplished leader you need to crack the code. I will show you that the “secret ingredient” is not so secret. We just don’t take time to include it.  When I am finished it will no longer be a secret and I will have unlocked the mystery of successful leadership.

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.
