Bookmark and Share

Happy 2020! As I write this message I am wrapping up my own Year End vacation, and hope that all of you had a safe and memorable holiday season (and may we all have a prosperous / successful new year, on both professional and personal levels)!

We hope to get a chance to both see and work with all of you this year. Below are the upcoming chapter events, and we would encourage you to join us if possible. Please visit our website ( for additional details / logistics. We hope to see you soon!
• Jan 21 – Monthly luncheon (3rd Tuesday of the month), with both networking and a collaborative discussion around a PM topic of relevance.
• Jan 28 – Monthly dinner (4th Tuesday of the month). Kevin Ciccotti, President of Human Factor Formula, Inc., will be speaking to our chapter on “The 3 Values of Great Leaders.” Kevin has spent the last decade speaking at conferences around the world, with his work focused on bringing out the leader within every Project Manager, and is a highly motivational speaker. Kevin will be exploring three stories that illustrate key values every leader must cultivate in order to succeed in creating an extraordinary legacy. You won’t want to miss out!
• Feb 1 – Monthly breakfast (1st Saturday of the month). The format is relaxed and roundtable, with lots of discussion about real-life experiences in PM.
• Feb 18 – Monthly luncheon (3rd Tuesday of the month), with both networking and a collaborative discussion around a PM topic of relevance.
• Feb 25 – Monthly dinner (4th Tuesday of the month). Rishi Malhotra, eta consulting, specializes in Strategy and Operational Excellence consulting. Rishi will be speaking to us on “Practical Problem Solving,” and will touch on a higher-level approach needed to be a real and practical problem solver. He comes to us with over 20 years of strategic and tactical Lean, Six Sigma, and manufacturing leadership experience. Among other achievements Rishi holds a Master of Business Administration in Finance, a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering, a Bachelor of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering, and is an ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt.

Last, but not least, we are always in need of volunteers (and fresh perspectives) to be successful as a chapter. Volunteer needs may be found on our website ( Please don’t hesitate to reach out and help in any way you can.

We appreciate you, and here’s to a successful New Year!
