I hope you continue to be well and safe as the Space Coast continues to endure this pandemic. As a reminder, PMI continues to support its practitioners and members in this time of disruption. As part of this commitment, I want to remind you that PMI has instituted a Membership Hardship Policy - Unemployed Members with 3 years of good standing membership are qualified for membership hardship grant by calling PMI Customer Care. PMI also offers many additional resources that can be found later in this newsletter.
As we consider our next year and open Board positions, I encourage you all to consider volunteering to join our Board. Please see our Organization Chart and let us know if you'd like additional information about any of these positions. Please email me for information about board membership if you are interested volunteering to help us continue to improve our Space Coast Chapter.

Thank you to Andy Kaufman for presenting "Help for the Crazy Busy" this month. We had great turnout for this incredibly interesting and interactive discussion. Thank you to all who attended.
Please note that we always welcome the opportunity to support our members who are willing deliver presentations and webinars so please let us know if you would like to do a webinar or presentation.
Earning PDUs is a necessary aspect of maintaining your PMI certification. To that end, we have instituted a monthly Webinar Spotlight to direct you to webinar content that we think is specifically relevant to the Space Coast and that you can access free of charge.
Project Management teams need the advantage of an iterative planning and execution model to keep them moving in an aligned direction. It is this type of discipline that will ensure a high-performing team culture.
Afterburner’s Flawless Execution methodology is an Agile approach used by Project Managers and business teams to get the highest results in the shortest time. This is achieved by having a shorter time to market, continuous process improvement, and ultimately, accomplishing mission objectives.
Learn how you can use the Flawless Execution model to your benefit as a Project Manager. In this webinar, Joel “Thor” Neeb will share his experiences in the military and in business to teach you how Flawless Execution creates Agility on your team.
