The Adventure and Growth Continues

Back in 2009, I reported on my volunteer experience with PMI (A New Adventure) having just wrapped up a term as the Component Mentor for Southwest North America and transitioned to the Community Development Governance Committee.  This post finds me on my annual trip to PMI’s Leadership Institute Volunteer Planning Meeting to begin my third year on this committee.  Our goal is to build awareness and foster adoption of governance best practices, and provide coaching and guidance for PMI Chapters with governance challenges.  We have been accomplishing our goals through publications, presentations, and defintion and implementation of governance related practices and processes.  Beginning this year, my role will expand as Governance Liaision to Western North America.

Like the profession and the organization, the Volunteer Planning Meeting continues to grow and continuously improve.  The meeting this year includes 160 volunteers from 25 countries in addition to PMI staff.  45% of attendees are graduates of the Leadership Institute Masters Class.  Our work influences the growth and development of 268 chartered and potential geographical communities in approximately 185 countries, 36 vitual Communities of Practice, 200 CoP leaders, and 3,150 Chapter leaders.  These communities serve over a half million members and credential holders.  This investment in strategy and planning is what makes PMI the world’s leading non-profit professional association for the project management profession.  In 2011, the community grew by 14 chartered and potential Chapters.

I’m pleased to be able to continue to represent and serve my profession and am looking forward to a productive new year.
