During last March, in the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, it was held the Project Management Institute Latin America Leadership Institute Meeting 2014 (PMI LA LIM 2014). This meeting, organized by the PMI Leadership Institute, was attended by more than 160 volunteers from 36 chapters in 17 countries.

The purpose of this meeting was to inspire and support PMI Chapter volunteer leaders representing chapters from around the world in the evolution of their leadership skills and to provide the opportunity to network with volunteers from across the globe, attend educational keynote and breakout sessions addressing critical aspects of chapter volunteer management and leadership development, learn about the tools and programs that have been developed to assist volunteers in successfully leading and managing PMI Chapters, hear the latest news and information about PMI’s global initiatives and engage with PMI staff.

Leaders and volunteers from PMI chapters in Argentina participated in this important meeting, as well as leaders from the rest of the countries in the region and from other continents.

The agenda of this meeting had excellent presentations, such as the motivating words of Mr. Ricardo Triana, Chair of the Board of Directors of PMI, who was strongly applauded by the audience.
