About the Quantico Outreach Meetings

PMIWDC's Quantico Outreach is a cooperative effort between PMIWDC and PMICVC chapters to provide a PMI presence and learning opportunities for project managers in and around the Quantico VA area -- half-way between Washington DC and Richmond VA. Established in 2006, the Quantico Outreach has been sponsored cooperatively by Marine Corps Systems Command, then L-3 Communications, and now by SimVentions in the interest of developing project managers better equipped to lead within the culture of the U.S. Marine Corps. Quantico Outreach brown-bag luncheons are free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required for all programs. Seating is limited. Project Management Toolkit Sessions are held on the first Wednesday of each month in a conference room at SimVentions located at: 11905 Bowman Dr #502, Fredericksburg, VA 22408 phone: (540) 372-7727. Coordinators are Dr. Ron Say of SimVentions and Mr. Eric Carlson of II Corps Consultants, Inc.
