Letter from the President

Happy New Year to You!

Time flies! Seems like I was just watching Thanksgiving fireworks at Uptown Houston - now suddenly it’s 2017. Shortly the Super Bowl will take place here in Houston, then suddenly it’s spring and baseball returns.

We all laughed at our parents saying time flies by and now we see what they mean!

What do you have planned for 2017? Did you make a resolution or did you make a plan? Did you set a goal and place a deadline on your calendar?

Chances are if you don’t place it on your calendar it won’t happen. Before you know it 2017 will be over. Time flies…

I challenge you to make a plan. Write down your goal and break it into doable pieces and place it on your calendar. We are great at managing projects for our employers. Don’t forget to manage your most important project: yourself. Invest in yourself make a plan to: exercise, learn a new skill, spend time with your family, do what you love.

One of your 2017 goals should definitely be to build your professional skills. “Sharpen the saw” and invest time in refreshing your skill set or learning something new.

As you make your plan look to PMI Houston for opportunities to learn. On our calendar this year we have:

February 11th Keep Houston Agile 2017

We are partnering with Agile Leadership Network (ALN) Houston to host our first annual Keep Houston Agile Workshop.  Bringing together Agile leaders in this one-day event to share real world experiences and providing a networking forum for like-minded technical professionals. Space is limited, so register early.

June 5th – 6th The Power of you

First week in June every year our annual professional development conference for project management professionals returns.

We are excited about our keynote and workshop speakers selected just for you.

This year expect some changes. Based on your feedback we’re focusing more time to learn skills and reducing the conference to 2 days. Were back at NRG Center. Space is limited so watch for registration details and register early.

Certification

Do you want to get your PMP? Check out our 4-day PMP Review class to prepare to take the PMP. Held monthly, it’s a great way to prepare to take the exam.

Networking

Our monthly meetings are a great way to meet others in our profession and build your network - plus gain some PDUs. Come check out one of our locations near home or near the office.

Watch our newsletter for Networking events throughout the year in different areas of Houston.

Your 2017 Board of Directors continues to plan events that support our members in growing your skills, networking and giving back to our community. Watch our monthly newsletter and PMIHouston.org for what’s happening.

We wish you a Happy New Year filled with opportunity, personal growth and joy.

See you around town,

Amy Stonesifer
