Be our Valentine, Mississippi Gulf Coast! It’s barely into February and we have been busy! We’ve scheduled all chapter dinner meetings for the rest of the year, we’re holding our chapter’s first social networking event next month (and more to follow), and we’ve opened registration for our April PMP boot camp. We’re looking forward to bringing you some fresh ideas, meeting you at our social networking events across the Coast. Keep reading to learn more, and check out the event listing on our website to see what’s next!

Also you may have recently received an email from PMI Chapter Development (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). PMI is committed to serving its members and as part of their ongoing commitment to provide you with unparalleled member value, PMI is evaluating chapter members’ satisfaction with the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chapter. Your insightful feedback will be used by PMI’s Global Chapter Development staff and volunteer team to support chapters and their local volunteer leadership in order to enhance the value you receive from the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chapter via the programs, services and networking opportunities it offers. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. We would like to include the opinions of all members associated with the chapter, even those who are in a chapter leadership role. Your individual feedback will be kept completely confidential. The deadline for your input is 11:00 PM EST on 18 February 2019

Please note that PMI Mississippi Gulf Coast chapter will also be sending a survey next month to gauge your interest in our events, the topics we present, meeting locations and your interest in helping organize some of our upcoming events. 

Upcoming Events

Wed Feb 20 - Dinner Meeting: Our scheduled guest speaker for the February Dinner meeting is Jennifer Williams who is the Director of Project Management at Keesler Federal Credit Union in Biloxi, Mississippi, and your 2019 Chapter President. Back by request, Jennifer is presenting “Agile for Anyone,” in which she explains how to use the Kanban framework to make every day work more efficient. Kanban is arguably the simplest version of Agile to implement and adopt, and it can be used in any industry or even at home! This presentation uses real-life examples from non-technical teams to introduce how it works. Please register today and join us on Wednesday February 20, 2019 at the Great Southern Club at the top of the Hancock Whitney building in downtown Gulfport. Doors open for networking at 5:30 pm, chapter business will be presented at 6pm, and Jennifer will present at 6:30pm. We look forward to seeing you at there!


Wed March 20 - PMI MGC Social Networking Event: We are hosting our chapter’s first social networking event! Join us at Parrish Lounge in Long Beach on Wednesday March 20th starting at 6pm. If you aren’t a chapter member, or just want to know more about what we do and who we are, stop by! We’ll provide appetizers (drinks are on you) and fun people to network with in Project Management across the Gulf Coast. Is this date or location not convenient? No worries—we are planning addition social networking in Biloxi and Ocean Springs soon.
