My main goal as the new VP of Networking is to promote PMIWDC’s professional networking events as the main venue in Washington DC’s metro area to meet and network with professionals in the project management community and young professionals (30 and under) interested in becoming project management professionals.

Project Management across the Realms: How Both Early, Recent Adopters of Project Management Practices Stand to Benefit

As a wide variety of organizations play catch-up to what many in the construction management and engineering fields have long known about the benefits of adopting project management practices, new schools of thought continue to emerge, thereby expanding the breadth and scope of project management at large.

Once viewed primarily as a means for tackling complex engineering projects, project management today offers methodologies for initiating, planning, and executing projects for organizations of all shapes, sizes, and focus areas.

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.
