Darn! Missed registering. Full house!

Looks like a great agenda. I must find time to watch the recorded webinar.

Thanks for putting this together!

I made a commitment last year to join the PMIef at the Leadership Society level after realizing that the unique work they do to broaden awareness of our profession, the support they provide to teachers interested in promoting our profession in schools, the doors they open for people needing the right skills to succeed, and the hope they give to survivors of disasters and people of need, isn't being provided by anyone else. It is up to all of us, as project management practitioners and professionals, to shape the future of project management and to give back to the profession that has given so much to each of us. Please...take this opportunity to get engaged in this noble cause. If you can't give financially, get involved at your Chapter level in a social project or email someone at the PMIef and tell them you'd like to volunteer your talents! If you can give, please know that your money is well-spent and directed at the most pressing of problems facing our world.

Always inspiring

LOL!! :)

@Mike: A recording can be viewed on-demand within 72 hours of the live session

I've already downloaded the Program Guide and tried to register for the live webinar but it is already full. Just like Mike, will try to watch it on-demand.

I think 1000 capacity was too less for such a huge audience willing to view the live webinar

I will try to to watch it on-demand.

Thank you for sharing this

Seems quite interesting. I'll keep it in my wish list,

Proud to be a member of an organization that is concerned and actively involved with helping others.

I will catch the on demand webinar.
