Why Do We Have To Change?
PMIWDC Non-Member Rate
If you experience any difficulties registering for this event, please call us at 703-683-4804 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and include the name of the event.
We lead it, implement it, embrace it, or are subject to it, but no matter what role we play, change is a constant factor in our professional and personal lives. Whether it is changes in budget, leadership, mission priorities, health, relationships or anything else, we can always count on things to change. Change is not only ever-present, but it is also the primary cause of stress, anxiety, and fear. Join John Verrico in a humorous and insightful look at understanding our reactions to change and how to incorporate, accept or manage it.

About the Monthly Dinner Meetings
The PMIWDC Monthly Dinner Meetings are held at the Sheraton Tysons (8661 Leesburg Pike, Tysons, VA 22182), typically on the second Tuesday of each month (subject to change due to holidays and venue/speaker availability). Members and non-members are welcome to join us for the best speakers and networking the Washington, DC area has to offer.
The presentations are educational and informative to those professionals operating in the field of project management and functioning in leadership roles in industry and government. It is also of great value to those looking to step into the field of Project Management and begin their certification process. Each event will present specific learning points focusing on building a talent triangle of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management skills, unique to the presenter's area of expertise and the subject matter discussed while directly relating to improving the practice of managing projects and leading others. At each Monthly Chapter Event certified PMPs can earn 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU).
