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!
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.
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.
