It's April and, here in North America spring has finally arrived...we think. We had a pretty decent snow storm a few weeks ago and we're hoping that's the last of it until winter comes around again. In the meantime, we hope that you've taken some time to reflect on your project successes during the first 3 months of 2018 and maybe even gathered some valuable lessons learned that will help make your future projects even more successful. With that, here's what's going on in the community:
- A United States Senator Visits PMI Global Headquarters: On Friday, 6 April, U.S. Senator Bob Casey visited PMI Global Headquarters in Newtown Square, Pennsylvania to see firsthand the impact of the project management profession across the United States and around the world. PMI Government Relations Manager, Tommy Goodwin, highlights the Senator's visit in a recent post.
- PMXPO 2018 is on-demand: If you missed PMXPO 2018 (or were not able to attend all of the sessions), you can still catch them on-demand! Hear keynote Joel H. Cohen (Emmy-award winning writer and producer of The Simpsons™) speak about key lessons from the show's culture of innovation that you can take away and apply to your projects. The event is on-demand until 22 June 2018 and you can view it here.
