May Meeting Summary
Our May meeting on the topic of Magic 8-Ball Risk Management was a real hit! Risk management is always a timely topic. Bob Mahler, Director of Business Development at Velociteach was our presenter. We are considering using the Velociteach program for PMP Prep classes later this year. We will keep you posted on our progress.
We are back on track with the polo shirts. We have received samples and are close to submitting our order. We will notify you when they are available for purchase on our website! Help spread awareness of our chapter by wearing a classy shirt!
Summertime is here! Please note that we will not have a meeting in July since so many people schedule vacations then. We’ll resume meetings again in August when we host our Annual Membership Meeting. The Annual Membership Meeting will not be the typical monthly chapter dinner meeting – we are planning something less formal and will keep you posted as we finalize our plans.
Coming In June
Our scheduled guest speaker for the June Chapter meeting on Wednesday June 21 is Sue McKinney, Proposal Manager at Huntintgon-Ingalls. She will speak on the Business Opportunity Decision and Capture Process. If you want to win competitive procurements consistently, capture planning is an essential business development process. Evaluating whether to place a bid, defining your strategy and communicating the advantage you'd provide to the customer are only a few critical steps in a larger effort. If you are involved in capture management now or possibly in another role in the future, this presentation will provide a better understanding of the capture process and strategies for winning. We look forward to seeing you on June 21!
Also in June, GlobalPM is holding a FREE Professional Development Seminar in Slidell on Friday June 23. It is an all-day event worth 6 PDUs. Lunch will be provided. Register now from our Events page!
