PMI Northern Nevada Chapter

President’s Corner

President's Message June 2022

We will hold our annual election of officers starting June 15 through June 26.  Chapter members will get an email from PMI with voting credentials and a link to the ballot.  The candidates are:

  • Nora Laitinen, VP Finance
  • Mark Sondgroth VP Operations
  • John Halberstadt, VP professional Development
  • (Because Linda Militano was appointed to fill the remaining term for VP Member Services, she will not be up for election until next year.)

I am very grateful that these highly qualified individuals were willing to step up to help our chapter thrive in the coming year.  Even though they are running unopposed, please cast your vote to show support for them.

We will have a dinner meeting on Tuesday, June 21 at La Posada Real (5270 Ln, Reno).  We’ll start with networking at 5:30, followed by dinner and a talk by John Halberstadt, our VP of Professional Development.  John’s topic will be:  Is agility even possible when implementing Commercial, Off the Shelf Systems?  As I am Program Manager for the Nevada DMV Transformation Effort, which is doing exactly that, I am looking forward to this presentation.  This time, the chapter will subsidize dinner at $15 for members, and one drink ticket will be included.  You can record the meeting with PMI for one PDU.  Please register on the chapter website so we know how much food to order.

I have submitted to PMI everything required for this year’s charter renewal, including our annual planning goals.  For the rest of 2022, we intend to hold one networking event and two dinner meetings per quarter.  Early in December, we will hold a holiday party that will be a combined dinner meeting and networking event.

I hope you all are well and thriving.

David Richards, PMP, PMI-ACP
