Thursday June 13 – PMI MGC Social Networking Event: We had so much fun at Parrish’s Lounge in Long Beach back in March that we are hosting another social networking event!

We’ll provide appetizers (drinks are on you) and fun people to network with in Project Management across the Gulf Coast.

Thursday June 20 – Dinner Meeting: Have you ever worked for an organization that made a big change (or two, or three) that didn’t go well? Have you seen budgets poured into a new system or into restructuring departments or into changing the company’s strategic direction, but there was so much resistance to the change that it flopped? Maybe the goal wasn’t met because it was a surprise to the employees? Maybe the change didn’t address the “real” problem at all? Maybe the change died on the vine because there was too much confusion about what the change was, or why a change was needed in the first place. If you can relate to any of this, then join us Thursday June 20th to hear from Jason MacDonald, CIO at Keesler Federal Credit Union, who will be presenting on “Change Management.” Jason will introduce us to the Prosci ADKAR® Model of change management through presentation and an exercise! Registration is open for this interactive dinner meeting--register by June 18th and receive a $5 early bird discount! We will be meeting 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 our guest speaker begins at 6:30pm.
