Beginning of Activities in PMI Chapters from Argentina

Summer ends, students return to their classes and PMI Chapters start their year’s activities.

This year is being presented with much movement in PMI Buenos Aires Argentina Chapter. During March, several events have already taken place, starting with the first meeting of the Community of Interest of Female Leadership in Project Management, which I am honored to lead myself, which took place last Wednesday, March 6th. With the participation of active members of this community, in this first meeting we worked on the objectives and the agenda of this year, we reviewed value proposal for the members and began to plan and approach projects.

Meetings of the Communities of Interest of Technology and Telecommunications Infrastructure and Community of Interest in Public Projects were also held during March, on Tuesday, March 19th, and Monday, March 25th respectively.

PMI Buenos Aires Chapter usually has a large audience through its communities of interest since it allows professionals to share their experiences, knowledge and lessons learned, as well as to investigate and generate new knowledge on topics of interest.

In addition to these meetings, PMI Buenos Aires Chapter has held a PMP® and CAPM® Certification Support Seminar on Thursday, March 14th; a PMI Volunteering Induction meeting, facilitated by Engineer Ana María Rodríguez, Director of Volunteers of Chapter Board of Directors, on Wednesday, March 27th; and an Introductory Mindfulness Workshop for chapter members on Thursday, March 28th.

Eight meetings of communities of interest have been programmed for April, corresponding to the Feminine Leadership, Business Analysis, Strategic Planning, PMO, Public Project Management, Government Projects, Construction and Agile communities. I recommend seeing all the dates on the website of the PMI Buenos Aires Chapter: www.pmi.org.ar

As it can be appreciated, Chapter’s volunteers are strongly involved with professional development, bringing current topics to local project management community and maintaining the relevance of being part of this global community that is PMI.
