The first chapter meeting of 2019, a networking event at Rolling Hills Country Club in Newburgh, IN, was a resounding success, judging by the fact that more than half the attendees were still there talking 15 minutes after the end of the session. Members and guests were treated to a nacho buffet, courtesy of PMISWIC, while getting to know one another. Project management backgrounds ranged from nuclear cleanup to Shoe Carnival stores and systems to real estate IT; one member came all the way from Paducah KY!
The facilities at RHCC are very comfortable, prices are reasonable, and a big screen TV is available for presentations. In future we may vary the format by having dinner meetings. We will also investigate doing live meetings on-line from this facility.
At a Board meeting that preceded the chapter meeting, Rick Whitson was appointed President. The Board discussed its approach to meeting the requirements of PMI's Catalog of Core Services (that are to be provided to chapter members) and completion of an Annual Plan, both part of our annual re-chartering with our parent, PMI. The Board is seeking both input and help with this effort; if you would like to assist, please click on "Volunteer or express your interest by contacting us" above this article.
