President's Message - April 2021

Greetings NCPMI Community!

Serving on the board as VP of Certifications has afforded me the opportunity to serve our membership and promote membership services. My name is Damien and I have served as NCPMI volunteer for over five years in roles such as Sergeant-At-Arms supporting the board, PMIEF Liaison collaborating with nonprofits and youth, and Director of Certifications providing instruction for PMP Prep courses. Education and training are true passions of mine!

As we continue our efforts in 2021, there are lots of changes to consider! As VP of Certification, I will be focused on navigating these changes and help each of you to receive the best value for your membership. I have received emails inquiring about changes with PMI courses and direction of certifications. It is my intention to use this platform as an opportunity to communicate NCPMI’s strategy for certifications program.

My focus for 2021:

  • NCPMI to become an Authorized Training Partner (ATP)- The new version of the Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification exam launched on 2 January 2021. With this new certification exam, PMI has instituted the ATP NCPMI has applied for, and is currently awaiting certification, to become an ATP. Though the process has taken more time than initially expected, this partnership will allow NCPMI to continue conducting PMP Prep and other courses. I truly believe NCPMI instructors make the difference for our students’ success! Additionally, keeping training in-house allows us to offer courses at a fair price to benefit our members. Once an ATP partner, courses will be scheduled and made available through the NCPMI website.
  • Adapt Virtual/Hybrid Models of Course Delivery – One benefit learned through these challenging times is the value of virtual delivery. We have had success in online delivery and will continue to explore this as an option. This will allow you, our members, to decide which platform, whether in-person or virtual, is best suited to meet your needs and schedule.
  • Expansion of NCPMI Courses for Experienced Members- To serve our members and help showcase skillsets, we will explore opportunities to expand our instructional courses. For our experienced members, this means looking at additional certification courses such as Agile, Business Analysis, Program Management, and others. Additionally, we will explore opportunities to promote PMI’s new Micro-Credential program.
  • Expansion of NCPMI Courses for Next Gen/Youth- As PMIEF Liaison, and current charter school administrator, I have witnessed first-hand the benefits of PM Skillsets for our next generation. I want to continue efforts and develop opportunities, such as CAPM and Project Management Ready, for our next generation/youth to earn professional experience and certifications. This provides current members volunteer and mentor opportunities for our next generation/youth.

These strategies will be challenging and take a large team of dedicated volunteers to be successful! As a military veteran (shout out to NCPMI Veterans Group!), I understand the power of team! Consider joining us! We are looking for members to serve as instructors and mentors in our various programs. If you have a passion for teaching or mentoring, we can make use of your talents! Contact me or view NCPMI’s Volunteer Opportunities webpage.

Since my first monthly chapter meeting when I was invited as a guest, I have been impressed with NCPMI because of the members and leadership! NCPMI has become my second family, and it is my pleasure to serve such a great organization!

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.
