PMI Barcelona Chapter 10th Anniversary

The past 8th of June, our Barcelona colleagues celebrated their 10th PMI Chapter Anniversary. The PMI Barcelona Chapter was chartered on 2004. Because of that, we could meet with all the Spanish PMI Chapters and meet Mr. Kris Troukens (Current PMI Region 8th Mentor) and Majda Elmakfi (PMI Chapter Development). In a similar way that PMI Madrid Chapter did last year, when celebrating their 10th Anniversary. It was a very nice event, where Alfonso Bucero (PMI Barcelona Sponsor and Former President), Marc Serer (Second President), Albert Cubeles (Third President) and Elisabet Duocastella (current President) did a chronological review around the PMI Barcelona Chapter activities, and in a lovely manner, remembered and shared some stories with the attendees that happened during the last ten years.

From here, we want to congratulate our PMI Barcelona Chapter colleagues for their achievements, and we wish them all the best for the upcoming years. Without any doubt, this celebration has served to reinforce the links among PMI Spanish membership. We hope from now we will be able to live new and common experiences to be shared in our next anniversaries.

Thanks to Elisabeth and to the PMI Barcelona Board of Directors for sharing that event with us.
