Updates from PMIWDC's Programs Operational Area

A featured board article by Uma Hiremagalur, VP Programs




Uma Hiremagalur, VP Programs

This is an edited transcript of an interview with our chapter’s Audio pioneer Uma Hiremagalur, VP Programs, where she gives us an update on the Programs area which she has led during her term of 2015-2016.

This is pretty exciting, you took over this term in the middle of last year as I remember.

Uma: That’s correct it’s actually a little less than a year at this point.

In general can you tell us what the Programs Operational Area is about?

Uma: The Programs OA is to provide 1-2 PDU events for our membership. We have the PM in the AM, which are breakfast series in DC, we have PM Saturdays which are breakfast series out in Virginia and we have our monthly chapter events which is PM Tools and “PM Talks” (dinner events).

So it’s a lot of focus on making sure people have something to learn, in a content sense and also this opportunity to network.

Lessons for the “Knowledge-Hungry” Project Manager
