Long Term Visitor - Should you want to continue receiving the professional development benefits this roundtable offers, you can choose to either join the Project Management Institute (www.pmi.org) and the PMI Mass Bay Chapter (as a component), or pay a nominal fee of $10 per visit through our meeting registration tool Event Guru. This tool will go online early January. (Important Note: We encourage you to check with your employer to see if they offer any kind of membership discount to organizations such as ours as part of their professional development program.)
Seeking Speakers - all roundtables are member supported. Meaning....members take turns in speaking before the group about something they wish to share, or a PM challenge they would like some advice on how to handle. The plan is to have ten speakers lined up upon the start of this roundtable. If you would like to offer to speak at one of the roundtable meetings on a project management topic of your choice, please let us know. If you would like to present, but are not sure what to talk about - no problem - we can offer you a few suggestions to get your creative juices flowing!
