PMI Madrid Chapter never stops

I’m very proud to see how PMI Madrid Chapter is still growing (1717 members) not only about membership but in the amount of activities they do. Among those Chapter activities we can mention:

  • Webinar on June 9th. “Life cycle and processes groups” delivered by José Ochoa.
  • Webinar on June 23rd. “How to sell risk Management inside organizations” delivered by Isaac Olalla.
  • A Project Management Encounter was celebrated dealing with Interim Management from different perspectives. The attendees could know in detail what is Interim Management and its trends either in Spain and the rest of Europe. The PMI Madrid Chapter thanks to the Interim Management Spanish Association (AIME) their Support making happen that event; getting more than 300 attendees, sponsors and volunteers efforts made the event possible.

The “PMI CyL Branch” has had a very intensive activity organizing the workshop “Put your innovation’s attitude on shape” driven by Carmen Alonso Ramos (@carmengal) and Maravillas Carazo San José  (@maracarazo).

In terms of outreach, the Chapter closed an agreement with the PMI Rome Italy Chapter to announce their 20th anniversary as a Chapter and the events that they will promote base on that:

  • Webinar on July 22nd. “The importance of Performance Evaluation: A project Management perspective” delivered by Carlos González Jardón.  A Spanish Chapter collaboration’s initiative.
  •  The Chapter monthly meeting.

Please move forward!

TODAY IS A GOOD DAY! to work on the benefit of our profession.
