May 2023 President's Corner
A message from our 2023 President, Eric McKendall:
We'd like to give our very own Operations Advisor, Philip Diab, a BIG thanks for his presentation at our April Chapter Meeting! Lots of great information shared and engagement from the members.
Do you have a topic you'd like to present? Let us know!
This month, we would like to remember and honor our U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the armed forces. May 29th may be the day we put focus on this, but we are forever greatful for those that have served and still serving.
The start of summer for many schools are ending, but as a Project Manager, our learning never ends! Get ready for our 2023 Career Showcase! Many companies such as Protective Life, Global PMO Partners, UAB, TEKSystems, BloodFlow, and more will be attending. Come check out this FREE event! We also have our May Chapter meeting so make sure you register as soon as possible for your seats. They fill up fast! As you attend these meetings, please take every opportunity to provide feedback so we may improve. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Recently I came across a few articles I find value in. To reflect upon those that are trying to start a PM career, see what you think about this episode.

Advice on Starting Your Project Management Career
How does someone break into project management? In a joint discussion, guests share how they started their project management careers, the top skills new project managers should develop and how organizations can help project leaders upskill. Plus, they share how certifications from PMI have given their career development a boost.
For those experienced Project Managers who continue to strive for improvement (or new), check out these two articles regarding change management and the future of Agile.
