President's message - November 2023

Hello NCPMI Members! 

"At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."  

     -Albert Schweitzer 

I often think about the above quote from Dr. Schweitzer as we do our business in bringing you the programs and events you deserve as NCPMI members.  Each meeting, no matter how large or what group, is an opportunity to rekindle a spark – a new idea or way of thinking about who we are and what we do each day inside the office and out.  This rekindling spirit is not only evident in our events also increasingly unmistakable in our member networking, outreach and charitable works.   If you haven’t been to an event or participated in our outreach efforts recently, please come and experience something extremely special. 

Gratitude, the quality of being thankful, is often ascribed to the season we now enter. We are often grateful for our friends, family and the meals we share.  However, we sometimes forget to practice gratitude in our daily lives.   Gratitude is but a small gesture, but it’s actually another spark that can also kindle a flame. 

With this in mind, I also would like to express gratitude to the Board, Extended Board and volunteers who collaborate and work tirelessly to provide you what you see each month.  Each member does this voluntarily outside of their “day” job because they have a passion for enriching our profession.  We are always looking for new volunteers and chapter leaders to keep our chapter vibrant and bright.   Please consider joining us and providing your spark and energy. 

Finally, I challenge you to provide that spark within the teams you lead and participate.  It is our job to elicit the very best versions of each of our team members.  When we do that, their best contributions will follow.  I also challenge you to express gratitude throughout your project.  Our project team members have a need to be valued for what they bring to the project.   It is up to us, as leaders, to show that appreciation, at the appropriate time and way, to keep their light burning.  Don’t save it until the end!  

Warm Regards, 

Thad Belfanti 

VP, Finance & Administration, 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.
