Welcome to PMI Durham Highlands Chapter!
A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
Creating Our New Normal
SEPTEMBER 2020. A lot has changed in the world since our last update in May. Seemingly, COVID-19 has changed everything. We offer you our deepest and sincerest condolences for our members that have suffered through the loss of a family member during this time.
For those who have been laid-off or let go and are looking to re-enter the workforce, we are committed to providing opportunities through volunteering, job boards, networking and workshops. This year will be unique as we strive to bring relevant topics and stay connected with you, our members. We recognize the need to do more, with less. We understand that 'virtual fatigue' is a thing, and we are making every effort to ensure our sessions are engaging and interactive. For the time being, we will remain virtual and re-evaluate as things progress in the fall.
Our September meeting will focus on getting noticed and staying connected (really connected) virtually. (Networking has never been more important!). The PMP Prep Course offering will continue to be virtual, and we are looking at innovative ways to connect and network online for CLIC later in the fall.
I look forward to seeing and speaking with you as we journey down this path of creating our 'new normal.'
Don't miss out on a single opportunity... see all future meetings and events.
