President's Message - January 2019

HAPPY 2019 to all our members, volunteers, sponsors and friends of the New York City Chapter!

I hope everyone enjoyed the December holiday season with family and friends and are ready to look toward 2019 open to new people, creative ideas and fresh opportunity.

As mentioned in previous 2018 President's Newsletters, the PMI New York City Chapter board has undergone its own transitional change for 2019 with board resignations, new board appointments and the successful completion of our 2018 annual board elections.

The 2019 PMI NYC Board will be installed at our January Business Meeting on Thursday, January 17, 2019. (Please ensure you register to attend via the chapter website)

*Jim Litsas was voted by 2018 board to the VP Membership role after Jennifer Ruda declined the appointment postelection due to family considerations.

Our plan for 2019 is continued focus on member value enhancement and expanded program delivery.  The creativity of our new board and leadership members will bring to 2019 will support the commitment we made to deliver these objectives.

I thank all our chapter members for the opportunity to serve as your president.  I look forward to working with both our members and talented, leadership team in 2019 and prove “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts".
