On behalf of the PMI Southern Alberta Chapter (PMI-SAC) Board of Directors, it is a pleasure and an honour to welcome you to the 2018 Professional Development Conference (PDC) being held at The Westin in downtown Calgary. This year’s conference theme is “It Starts With Us – Change Yourself, Change Your Organization, Change the World.”
The 2017 PDC has brought together a tremendous lineup of speakers from various industries, organizations, and universities – many of whom are local to Calgary. In accordance with the new PMI CCR requirements, the speakers will share content on a wide range of topics that are aligned to the PMI Talent Triangle of Technical Project Management, Strategy and Business Management, and Leadership.
This year’s Conference Chair is Mark Perry, a PMI-SAC Fellow, Board Member and longtime dedicated volunteer of the Chapter, who has proven to be a true leader, bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience. Mark and his PDC Committee members have all worked extremely hard and passionately to provide an outstanding conference program and valuable networking activities.
To be successful project management practitioners in today’s challenging economy, we must embrace change. This year’s conference program will give you a new perspective on making change to impact you, your organization, and inevitably the world. I invite you to register early so you do not miss out!
