About PMINYC Chapter - President's Message

Our Volunteers Keep PMI NYC Humming

National Volunteer Week was April 14 – 22, 2018 and April was International Volunteers Month.

The Project Management Institute New York City Chapter is not run by a team of volunteers. It is run by a community of volunteers – 120 volunteers to be exact. Our volunteers find our meeting venues, plan our chapter meetings, and execute our Symposium, make sure our technology works and run our Outreach events and elections. Our volunteers make sure each member receives PDUs for the meetings they attend.

Our wonderful volunteers take small pieces of their professional and personal lives and freely give them to PMI NYC. For this they do not receive a salary. They receive a thank you and, perhaps, the knowledge that they have given back to their profession. Perhaps, they have made a new lifelong friend, learned a new skill or grew a skill they already had.

Each person volunteers for their own reasons and realize benefits particular to them.

At this time of celebrating volunteers, it is important to recognize the selfless contributions and the time and effort freely given of all of our volunteers.

On behalf of the PMI NYC Board, we thank you with the utmost gratitude for keeping PMI NYC in business, often without recognition or fanfare.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Karen E. Fox, PMP
