Mid-September 2019 Newsletter


September 17, 2019

The PMI Willamette Valley Chapter is the Community for Project Management
in the Willamette Valley of Oregon.  Here's an update on our upcoming events.

Annual Chapter Leadership Election Update

The PMI Willamette Valley Chapter welcomes and invites your participation and contribution  to the ongoing activities of the chapter as one of our many volunteers. Together, we provide education, professional development, and networking opportunities to our members in the Willamette Valley. These activities include our professional certification prep courses, our annual professional development conference, mentoring and networking events, and our monthly programs at each of our branches (Eugene, Corvallis, and Salem). Our volunteers earn PDUs for Giving Back to the Profession.


To plan and coordinate Chapter activities, a group of volunteers at the Chapter and Branch levels perform the needed program, technical, and administrative roles. Some of these volunteer positions also serve as Chapter Board Members and must be formally elected by the chapter membership for two year terms.

We have five leadership positions up for election for the 2020–2021 term. Here are the positions and a brief description of what they do. 

  • Chapter VP Finance. Coordinates our chapter budget and financial transactions.
  • Chapter VP Programs. Coordinates our professional development and education events.
  • Chapter VP Membership. Coordinates membership recruitment and retention, and assists members with resources for professional development and certification.
  • Chapter VP Technology. Coordinates information technology services to keep our website and event registration in operation.
  • Salem Branch President. Leads Salem Branch program and financial operations.

Revised Dates: The 2020–2021 Leadership Term elections will now open Thursday, 10 October 2019 and close Thursday, 17 October 2019. Nominations are now open until September 25. 

This is your opportunity to give back to your profession, while having fun doing it. Please consider volunteering your time in one of these positions. Full position descriptions and nomination forms are available on the chapter website.

Corvallis Lunch Meeting

Lets get back into our fall lunch series with stories of projects that went terribly wrong. We often learn from our mistakes so lets discuss past mistakes involving Project Management and how we can avoid those going forward. We'll come with some project stories to share and please bring tales of 'learning opportunities' that you've worked through as well.
