2020 PDD Volunteers' Meeting

09-23-2019 5:30 pm -7:30 pm

(1) The Professional Development Day (PDD) marks the single biggest event for the PMI-Midlands Chapter. This event can’t come together without a willing team of volunteers that commit to the planning and execution of different facets of the event, year-round.
(2) It’s that time of the year again and we are beginning to pull together an army of volunteers to begin the planning of the 2020 PDD. A lot of planning goes into this event. To make the 2020 PDD possible, we are in search of volunteers who are willing to contribute their unique skills, talents and interests to ensure we pull off a successful and hitch-free 2020 PDD.
(3) We therefore welcome you to join the 2020 PDD planning team and be part of history. You can sign-up by attending the first exploratory meeting of the team.
