Wow! 2016 has zoomed by and, while it has had its fair share of challenges, we had a lot of successes here in the community. As a community we have delivered over 900 pieces of content (you read that right), over 1,350 blog posts, and over 20,000 discussion posts and the year hasn't ended yet! Our community has LOTS to say and that's music to our ears because it tells us that you want to share. You care about helping your peers solve issues and you have a passion for sharing the knowledge you have with one another. This is only part of what makes our community so great.

With a little over 2 weeks left in the year, I wanted to share a few things you may have missed in the rush to wrap up year-end activities:

  • As some of you may have already heard, the United States Senate unanimously approved the Program Management Improvement and Accountability Act. This is a major step forward for the future of project management. You can read more about this groundbreaking legislation, it's origin, and why it's important here. We will share more information about this bill as things develop.
  • Got something to say about ethics in the workplace? There's a survey for that. Click here to share your views on this important topic. Your participation matters!
  • Do you have colleagues who would benefit from being a part of the community? Do you want to earn a new badge? If the answer to either of those questions is a resounding "YES!" then read how you can earn badges and contribute to improving project success when someone you refer to the community completes registration on the site. 
  • Do you have experience with Bowtie methodology for Enterprise Risk Management? If so, one of your fellow community members could use your help! Take a look at James Chew's discussion post to see if you can help provide some solutions.

It's been an amazing year with all of you. On behalf of the Community Engagement team, thank you for being a part of our thriving community. Your participation and engagement is the reason why we are here.

Happy holidays to you and yours and best wishes for your success in 2017!
