Miss our March 22nd Chapter Dinner? Here’s what you missed!

Miss our March 22nd Chapter Dinner? Here’s what you missed!

Wednesday March 22nd was our Chapter Dinner held in the Reading Room at the Union Club. Paul Latour and Pete Smither from HeroWork spoke about how they use the PMBoK to plan and execute their “modern day barn raisings” in the not-for-profit environment. Their inspiring talk helped remind all the PMs in the room, regardless of their industry, that project management is about people at its core. When you put people first, your project is sure to be a success and you will have earned a dedicated team for many projects to come.

Paul Latour presents to the audience

President's Chapter UpdatesWe were joined by members of our PM community all the way in Whitehorse! We are in the process of creating a branch chapter in their community and used our March dinner as a test run for some conferencing technology. Stay tuned as we continue to evolve our technical abilities with the hope that we will soon be able to offer virtual attendance at all of our events!

As members of the Union Club, our chapter events will be hosted in their various rooms for the foreseeable future. Next time, join us and enjoy their dynamite buffet dinner with a wide selection of sustainably caught seafood, a Chef carved Prime Rib, a plethora of salads and other bites – and a crème brulee finish! There were options for all diets including vegetarian, gluten free options and special plates for those with allergies.
