If you were able to make the August luncheon, you’ll understand why we are so excited to welcome April Clark back for more information on Reach & Teach. If you missed the meeting, find out more about their program here. You can also check out their YouTube channel here

Our Chapter is teaming up with Reach & Teach to help students and teachers plan and host a rock concert at their school. Students will do all of the work, but it’s a big undertaking…which is where Project Management comes in! We are going to meet with April on Thursday, October 10th, to take a deeper dive into their curriculum and brainstorm ways our Chapter can get involved.

This is open to all members and will count towards “giving back” PDU’s. Even better, this is a great way to get involved in our community and bringing project management to the next generation.

Meeting Details:

When: Thursday, October 10th, 2019 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

Where: Hoover Public Library Café (East 59 Vintage Café)

In today’s business environment, Leaders are known as “Influencers”. The most effective Influencers are natural Leaders, or people who have learned to develop themselves into the Leader that they wish to be. Although, there are hundreds of books, articles and resources that promote which attributes aspiring Leaders should have, this 4-part iLead Series will teach you how to apply them so that you can be an influential Leader who adds real value in life and in business.
