See Yourself with Us!
A month into 2018 and we are ecstatic about the new ideas and goals our board of directors are working on! We have the desire! We have the ideas! The only thing missing is YOU! We want to tap into the multitude of strengths that you, our members, bring to the proverbial table!
As you know, PMI-CIC is made up of an ALL volunteer board. Every meeting, workshop and event is planned and organized by our remarkable board and event committees. And as our goals get larger, we simply need more volunteers to make them happen. We need YOU!
Whether you have a few hours each month or once a year, we are looking for additional volunteer support in the form of adding on to our committees. And there are perks! OK, maybe not perks as much as PDUs for volunteering, and the chance to get to know some really great people! Franky, if you’ve ever considered a board role, volunteering in any capacity is a great way to get a feel for what that would be like.
Below I’ve listed some specific needs, but there are others as well. If you’re not certain what you’d like to do or where you’d like to volunteer, email our director of volunteerism at email@example.com. Tell us just a little about yourself, where you’d like to help out and provide your PMI member number.
If one of the below opportunities interests you, let her know that, too:
PMI CIC Study Group
PMP Study Group Topic Leaders: Something new in 2018 – the opportunity to attend a PMP study group. The group will have oversight from our PMI professional development team and director of certifications, but we also need volunteers who have passed the test and are willing to volunteer for an hour or two, even just one time, to share your experience and insights with this group. We need any “tips” or “tricks” for memorization, where to focus your time, glossary terms, and even specific subject matter information such as calculating earned value, or different processes and techniques. Get in touch with our Director of Certifications, Karen, at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know you’re available.
PMI CIC Ambassador Volunteers
PMI Company/School Ambassadors: We need ambassadors who are willing to provide information, encourage, and remind co-workers to attend and engage in the multiple PMI chapter meetings, networking and professional events each year. It’s an easy role that involves getting to know more of the people you work with. If this is you, then email our director of volunteers – at email@example.com
PMI CIC Professional Development Day (PDD) Event
PMI PDD Committee Volunteers: We’re looking for PDD committee volunteers for multiple roles. Commitment includes a monthly meeting for planning and the day of the event itself.
PMI Day of Volunteers: We’re looking for PDD “day of” volunteers for to an hour or two the night before and the day of the event to help manage and support the rooms the speakers use for the sessions.
I remember the days of working while managing family activities and appointments. I realize for some of you this may not be the right time, and that’s ok. But for those who can, we’d love to meet you and help you to SEE YOURSELF as a part of the PMI Central Iowa team of volunteers!
