March 2020 Newsletter

Introducing our new chapter logo!  We were excited to reveal our new chapter logo at the February 20th dinner meeting! The lighthouse in the logo has been updated to be a little more streamlined, while still preserving the history of the previous logo and representing landmarks that are built into the fabric of the Mississippi Gulf Coast region. Very soon this new logo and its style will be applied across our chapter website, newsletters, LinkedIn page, Facebook page, documents, shirts, pens and so much more! Be watching for the changes! And if this brand change isn’t enough, we are offering more exciting events in this newsletter—be sure to read about it all! Based on your survey feedback last fall, we’re holding quarterly dinner meetings (rather than monthly) and focusing on presentations that are most relevant to our profession. You also asked us to visit more areas, so our April dinner meeting will be in Ocean Springs—read below for the details! We still have a few seats available for the PMP boot camp in April (register below) so you can be prepared and sit for the exam before it changes in July. And biggest of all…we started planning a ½ day Professional Development Seminar to be held later in the fall—much more to come about that!  Because so much is headed your way, remember to stay connected with us by visiting our event listing page on our website to see what’s next!
