President's Message

Giusi Meloni

Dear colleagues,

2021 has been a pivotal year for our Chapter: we celebrated our 25th anniversary and we were recognized as the PMI Chapter of the Year.

It’s now time to look ahead and work towards the strategic objectives that we have confirmed for this year:

• Evolve towards a "knowledge hub" structure

• Confirm the Chapter's vocation as a "bridge" between local and the global communities

• Extend and enrich collaboration network

To this end, we are leveraging the experience gained in the past two years and we continue to experiment with new virtual and blended formats, extending our reach and permeability to innovative approaches and ideas from PMI global community with joint events and initiatives.

Locally, our three Branches are also working to guarantee a safe return to in-person events while internally our efforts are focused towards a more projectized and sustainable organizational structure to encompass the passion of all our volunteers.

Finally, we cannot ignore that we are living in a time of profound and often disruptive transformation, beautifully expressed in the opening lines of one of Charles Dickens’ masterpieces:

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.”

Written in 1856, these words resonate through times and send a powerful message about how we choose to view and approach change today: at PMI-NIC we are committed to honor our heritage while continuing to “go beyond”.

PMI Northern Italy's Forest

For its 25th Anniversary, our Chapter wanted to do something to leave a great impact on the global community, going beyond the boundaries of our association.

For this reason, we planted 2500 trees, each one as a gift for each of our members. This initiative has been highly appreciated and we decided to continue, adding a new tree for any new member.

You can track the impact on carbon emissions of the "PMI Northern Italy's Forest" by clicking the button below.

The same smart button is on different pages of our website: it tracks the site views, calculates their related CO2 emissions and automatically plants the trees needed to compensate for them: another good reason to visit our site frequently!
