President's Message

Greetings PMI-DHC members,

I am honored to serve as your President for the PMI Durham Highlands Chapter.  Since the Chapter was established back in 1999, there has been a consistent increase in membership.  When I was elected to the board in 2014, the Chapter had reached 550 members.  Today we are over 800.  While that is remarkable, the dedicated Board of Directors and I hope to continue that success increasing not only total membership, but also increasing member retention.  It is important to me, that the membership realizes the value in being a continued member of this Chapter. 

Over the summer months, the Board has been busy planning our strategy on how we move forward, using the feedback that you, the membership, have provided us.  The key to achieving our goals is to reach out and listen to what you expect of us.  Over the 2018/2019 year, the Chapter will continue to offer valuable monthly meetings with engaging, quality speakers and networking opportunities, as well as provide volunteer opportunities for those of you who wish to play an active part in the Chapter’s future.  This Chapter relies on its passionate volunteers and could not operate without them.  We also plan to continue with the PMP Prep Course, Mentorship Program, DECA U/Future City Involvement, increased collaboration with our Regional Colleges, and look to explore offering other courses such as an ACP (Agile) Prep Course and specific workshops that have been requested through our most recent survey results.  We are setting out to improve our communications to the membership, act quickly on your feedback, increase membership engagement through quality, not quantity, and strive to provide maximum value for you, our membership.

This is a challenging, yet achievable task, and with a passionate and dedicated Board of Directors, Committee Chairs and Volunteers, I believe we can accomplish our goals and bring our vision to reality.  It has been an absolute pleasure to be a part of this Chapter…  This Board… And I aim to continue the remainder of my term to the pursuit of our mission and vision.

I look forward to meeting with you over the next year, and to continue to serve this membership to the best of my abilities.

Sincerely,

Joe Campa, PMP, PMI-RMP, PMI-PBA
President, PMI Durham Highlands Chapter
2018-2019
