It is a new service year for our chapter and I am honored to have been re-elected to serve as your Chapter President for another term along with other Board Members. Thank you all for your support!
As 2020 draws to close, reflecting upon intense challenging year to cope with COVID-19. I hope you continue to be well, safe and healthy. 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.
Last year we held several Virtual Happy Hour with trivia game Kahoot. We think these are fun, however they are not always well attended. If you have ideas for activities we can offer, please send your recommendations in to our Vice President of Membership at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are open to both Virtual Activity ideas as well as things that we can safely do in the fresh air and support social distancing.
We are incredibly excited about our Virtual Lunch & Learn Series Workshop 1: How To Treat Your Life As A Project w/ Live Q&A (Workshop 1) , January 27 at 12:00 PM.
Please see this link to register, and feel free to encourage your colleagues who are interested in Project Management to also attend this free event. You do not need to be a chapter member to attend.

May this new year enable us to build bridges to collaborate as team to achieve new goals and objectives. A new year that brings new inspiration and aspiration. Wishing you a happy, safe and healthy New Year!. Happy New Year!

Working and learning remotely has shown us that cyber safety education needs to become a priority. Cybersecurity is everyone’s job, not just IT’s. Working from home has made us all more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Now that our youth are also remote, cyber safety education across all generations has never been more important. In this presentation, you will gain practical tips and advice on how to secure your online activity and ensure you are protecting yourself and your family. In addition, learn how to become an advocate for cyber safety, including when volunteering with youth-serving nonprofits in your community and those that partner with the PMI Educational Foundation (PMIEF).
