PMIWDC March Monthly Chapter Meeting

We return to the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center at 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue (Federal Triangle Metro) with two Dynamic PMPs presenting at our March IN PERSON Monthly Chapter Meeting.

There will be Buffet Dinner and your choice of beer, wine or a cocktail included with your admission. The evening will start at 530 with an OPTIONAL FREE Member Orientation (Separate Registration Required) on the benefits of being a PMIWDC Chapter member and the opportunities we offer members. Author of Project Management for Parents, Hilary Kinney, will present “Embracing Change and Reducing Risk: How to Manage Uncertain Times”. She will share insights into Theory, Examples and Exercises in Change and Risk Management. Hilary’s book will be available for purchase at the event. Following our buffet dinner Chapter Member Erika Flora will share her journey from microbiologist to project manager to CEO, Erika’s journey of leveling up has been anything but a straight path. Erika shares some of her best stories and lessons on how to find joy (and a bit of humor) at work and at home, build great teams and projects (plus what to do when everything goes sideways), and implement a nearly-fool-proof plan to levelup in your own career.

Please join us as we return to the Ronald Reagan Building for another educational and entertaining evening. In addition to the presentations there is the optional Member Orientation at 1730 before the presentations start. There is a separate registration for the Member Orientation. Earn 2 PDUs and network with old Project Management Friends and New Associates. You will enjoy a buffet dinner and a beer, wine or cocktail with your admission to the March Monthly Chapter meeting.
