I’d like to personally welcome you to this year’s Professional Development Conference, and I encourage you to make the most of your time with members of the PMI Southern Alberta Chapter (PMI-SAC) Community.
This year’s theme is “It Starts With Us – Change Yourself, Change Your Organization, Change the World.” I challenge you to take charge of your experience throughout the event and design an agenda that will address your personal, professional goals. This year’s program is packed with presentations, inspirational keynotes, and workshops designed to help you find solutions as you practice the art of project management.
As someone who has spent more than 15 years managing and leading teams, I know what it takes to step away from work and focus on becoming even better at what you do. I applaud your commitment to expand your knowledge, learn new tools and processes, and gather insights from experts across the globe.
Throughout this Professional Development Conference, I encourage you to build new relationships within your project management community, introduce yourself to our outstanding sponsors, and always continue to meet every challenge with new ideas and constant energy. Remember – Change yourself, change your organization, CHANGE THE WORLD.
On a personal note, I can now tell you organizing a conference is not exactly what we are trained for. It requires the help of many key volunteers that contribute many hours to make it successful. A very special thanks to our board sponsor, Randy George, along with the conference committee – Cathy Mitchell, Jayeeta Ray, Dan Petley, Lahiru Silva, Shelley Pinder, and our event planners – Spark Event Management.
