The PMI Madrid Chapter continues advancing on spreading out our profession

On July 25th 2014, the PMI Madrid Spain Chapter counts on 1.479 members. If on May 28th, as a Chapter President (says dice Francisco Javier Rodriguez), I was proud of getting signed a collaboration agreement between PMI Madrid Chapter and ASTIC Foundation (created by ASTIC Association, and composed by officials from the Body of Information Technology from the Spanish Public Administration), during last days we have had other important contact with the Spanish Public Administration, getting aligned in that way with one of the strategic objectives from the PMI Madrid Chapter.

So, last Tuesday July 15th, representatives from the PMI Madrid Chapter BOD and his president (Francisco Javier Rodriguez) met the Managing Director of the Public Foundation from the Community of Madrid, Concepción Guerra Martínez. In a long interview, they had the opportunity to introduce her to the PMI Madrid Chapter as a professional and nonprofit organization and what it promotes, what means the project management professionalism.

As a result from that meeting, the PMI Madrid Chapter has agreed their participation in one of the forums organized by the Community of Madrid where they will  present that association, and what Project management means, to all officials in that Community. We sincerely believe that this will be a great opportunity to present and introduce the project management profession in the public sector. From here we thank Mrs. Concepción Guerra and her team her kindness and great disposition for receiving us in her office.
