Upcoming Events

September Monthly Meeting

Tues. Sept. 19, 2017
Title: Change Management Strategies 
Speaker: Cheri Essner, PMP, MCPM, MCBA

Change is inevitable as time marches forward and yet people find it one of the hardest parts of life's journey. We lull ourselves into a false sense of security and when the ebb and flow begins reactions are very different. Organizations need to prioritize their Change Management initiatives as part of strategic planning. Cheri will take you through the fear of change, providing keys strategies to foster organizational change. The vision of a better way, a better solution, a better product are courageously approached with determination and an open mind.

To register, please visit: Sept. Montly Meeting 

As project manager's grow our professional careers, we all need to develop our leadership skills and learn how to perform within corporate environments. 
This month, our very own Cheri Essner will be speaking on this very topic. 
She will discus successful organizational cultural shifts, which will foster the ability to envision a new state. 
Join us for this presentation and discussion.
Speaker: Cheri Essner, PMP, MCPM, MCB
