Spring is in the air on the Mississippi Gulf Coast (which means the pollen is, too)! How is it possible that we are already into the 3rd month of the year? We’ve been busy scheduling all chapter dinner meetings for the rest of the year, planning our chapter’s first social networking event this month (and more to follow), and opening registration for our April PMP boot camp. We’re looking forward to bringing you some fresh ideas and meeting you at our upcoming events across the Coast. Keep reading to learn more, and check out the event listing on our website to see what’s next!
Wed March 20 - PMI MGC Social Networking Event
We are hosting our chapter’s first social networking event! Join us at Parrish’s Lounge in Long Beach on Wednesday March 20th starting at 6pm. Do you want to know more about our chapter and how being a member can help you? Are you a member who hasn't been able to attend chapter events? 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 additional social networking events in Biloxi and Ocean Springs soon.

Thurs March 21 - Dinner Meeting
Our scheduled guest speaker for the March Dinner meeting is Dan Marks, Chief Marketing Officer at Hancock Whitney Bank in Gulfport, Mississippi. Mr. Marks is offering a presentation about “Changing a Brand.” Mr. Marks and his team changed Hancock Whitney’s name and brand last year, and he’ll review all that goes into a project to change an organization’s brand. Please register today and join us on Thursday March 21, 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 Mr. Marks will present at 6:30pm. We look forward to seeing you there!
