Ithaca branch of Project Manager Institute (PMI) to host upcoming presentations
The Ithaca branch of the Project Manager Institute (PMI) grew from a group of project managers from Cornell who started meeting in 2009. What began as a special interest group expanded into a regional group of project manager professionals. As the group matured, a decision was made to pursue a formal relationship with PMI to better serve the region in support of the Project Management practice.
Since the branch was formalized in early 2011, it has grown from approximately 15-20 PMI members to fifty-five members. Membership reaches geographically all over the Finger Lakes region, as well as across diverse industries: from manufacturing to medical care to higher education. PMI-Ithaca welcomes anyone from the region that is interested in project management.
The group offers monthly presentations, open to all. The next two will be held at the Tompkins County Public Library and are:
- January 19: Lessons Learned from The Commons Redesign and Upgrade Project, by Michael Kuo. Register by January 17 for a discounted price.
- February 24: Building Trust in Project Teams, by Michael Swenson.
