Important Message from PMICAC President
I want to reach out to our members and first of all say that, on behalf of the PMI Central Alabama Chapter (PMICAC) board members, I hope that all is well with each of our members and their families. As we all know we are in the midst of an unprecedented time in our personal and professional lives. For the most part, we all have made significant shifts in how we work and interact with our colleagues, customers, and vendors. Like most of us, PMICAC was not prepared for these conditions and did not expect in mid-March 2020 that we would still be in the same position in mid-June 2020.

Grow Your Skills
It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sought after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
