Second Annual Veterans Transition & Skillfest Event - April 21, 2018

 

The Chapter’s Veteran Transition event hosted last year was extremely well received. Accordingly, we will host our second event on April 21, 2018 at Cape Fear Hospital, Fayetteville, NC.  Veterans interested in learning more about Project Management as a career path should plan to attend as this event is open to all branches of the Military including: Active, Guard/Reserve, Veteran and Retired. We believe that the attendees will leave with the “ammo” necessary to help further transition from their current career path into Project Management. This event will also provide great networking opportunities.

The guest speaker for this PMI Metrolina event is the renowned author and speaker Jay Hicks.  Mr. Hicks is both a retired Vet and author of "The Transitioning Military Project Manager" series of books. His books have notably helped translate military experiences into civilian project management lingo, a valuable resource during transition.

All attendees must pre-register for the event using the following link - here.

For questions, contact Militaryliaisondirector@pmi-metrolina.com

Looking forward to seeing you there!


Military Liaison Program

 

The PMI-Metrolina Military Liaison program is now live!  PMI has a focus on providing services to our military members.  Late last year, a Director was found who designed a program for the chapter.  Given our footprint, there are 10 military installations and over 135,000 active duty and 140,000 retires.  Our approach is to have local liaisons from each branch at the particular military installation.  So far, we have liaisons for the Army at Ft. Bragg, Marines at Camp Lejune, and Air Force for Pope Army Airfield and Seymour Johnston.  These liaisons are using our program materials to create location-specific materials to provide to interested people.  We are focusing on :

  • active duty personnel by providing PMP type support,
  • separating military by providing Project Management career guidance and support,
  • and networking opportunities for retirees.


The liaisons are also working with our local communities to help provide support for events and activities focused on the military.

If you are active duty or retired military and interested in supporting this program, reach out to the militaryliaisondirector@pmi-metrolina.com for more information.
