Next Set of Community Offerings Are Here!

Categories: community, news

Our team is always looking for ways to grow and strengthen the community here. This year we're working on four new initiatives that we believe will do just that — from helping you connect and engage with each other in more meaningful ways, to creating discussions and forums for you to ask questions, share work experiences, and learn about exciting offerings at PMI. 

As you may have already seen back in March, we launched a new blog called Peerspective, managed by editor Aaron Smith. "Peers sharing perspectives" — that's its purpose, and in each spotlight we learn about how a community member got started, what they’ve discovered along the way, and why they love what they do. We all benefit from learning about each other’s experiences, challenges, achievements and insights. Perhaps you may be the next person featured, and be sure to check out new installments every month!

In June, we will launch a quarterly Discover PMI - Ask Us Anything! series. Here, we will present short Q&A sessions with various PMI experts. The first one will be June 17 with guest Karl Best, PMI Standards Specialist, discussing “What’s Up With Standards?" Other PMI departments and experts will soon follow, and all sessions, which are non-PDU bearing, will be recorded and posted for your convenience. Which PMI department or offering would you like to learn more about?  We welcome your suggestions!

Later this summer, our Discussion area will feature a new board called Community Central.  Here, we will announce site news, including new features, and facilitate two discussion threads where you can discuss your current work challenges and request help from (or provide answers to) your fellow community members.

Later in the year, we will launch Community Conversations — non-PDU bearing roundtables that allows for informal, small-group discussions on a variety of topics that you choose.  We hope to create an opportunity for you to engage in friendly, open exchanges with your peers—to help each other on any number of work challenges or professional development goals, from interviewing and skill building, to understanding industry trends.

Our project is YOU. Your successes and setbacks, your passions and peeves—we want to hear about them all, and help you get to where you're going today and tomorrow. We hope these four initiatives are solid steps in that direction. As always, your feedback and ideas are most welcome!
