To better serve and maintain direct contact with our members, the Chapter has founded seven territorial Branches which promote our association with local events and dedicated initiatives.
Each Branch reinforces the regional traditions and peculiarities to guarantee a constant and qualified response to the local needs and specific interests.
Every year Branches organize the majority of the Chapter events and propose different formats to engage people and attract new members and volunteers. For example, typical Branch event formats are convivial pre-dinner meetings, called “Aperitivi”, mixed gastronomic and informative events called “Dinner with projects”, innovative ideas like “Candida*mente” podcasts, inter-chapter events like Light-Up (a joint event of the Central PMI European Chapters of Austria, Croatia and Slovenia Chapters with the Northern-Eastern Branch of Friuli-Venezia Giulia of the PMI-NIC), and events on experience collection and sharing like “Progettando”.
The PMI-NIC experience showed that new members are empowered and become loyal through the “come and see” approach: Branches are the perfect host to welcome new guests and engage them in “next-door” activities.
