Ben Kahn, Transformation Manager, will present the DMV Service Transformation Program including what DMV has learned from the past, where they are today, and the plans for the future. He will also share how DMV impacts every Oregonian, especially those wanting to travel by air in the future. There will be ample opportunities for discussion, especially around lessons learned, best practices and minimizing risk.
Corvallis Branch is excited to announce a workshop collaboration with our sister chapter, PMI Portland. Alan will be presenting a 4-hour afternoon workshop about managing risks to conquer daunting challenges, such as climbing Mt Everest! Alan Mallory took on the challenge and set a world record when he, along with three members of his immediate family, reached the summit of Everest. This incredible, self-guided expedition challenged the mental, emotional and physical limits of their entire beings and at every stage of the ascent demanded unwavering commitment and resilience.
Key Learning Objectives:
Planning and executing difficult projects
Empowering team members to make critical decisions
Responding quickly and efficiently to issues that arise
Identifying risks early
Developing risk response strategies
Registration extended to March 19!
This workshop will take the place of our regular scheduled lunch meeting -- registration is limited, reserve your seat early!

The normally-peaceful Willamette Valley was a perfect place to be for the 2017 eclipse since it was in the path of totality. The downside was that it seemed everyone else in the world wanted to be here, too! All of our worst fears about food/water shortages, stalled emergency services, power outages, and traffic from hell nearly came to pass – except for One Man. Find out how Mike averted potential disaster by using the only tool capable of handling this scenario: the Incident Command System.
