Commitment to engage the chapter in a vision and execute on action to make that happen are key ingredients for a PMI Board Director. The Chapter has stabilised in the past few years, however we are missing opportunities to accelerate growth and engagement to capitalise on our profession. Membership is flat or declining and relationships with aligned professional bodies remain in their infancy – some lost. I believe a project management profession is capable of more. We should be able to double our size in 5 years. Growth is good and brings new opportunities for development, networking and career prospects. Effective engagement across all sectors is needed to deliver growth, along with a resource rich and useful support tools for the modern practitioner. Taking up the recent challenge to re-invigorate Women In Project Management gives me great hope for the future. I hope to have your trust to make a difference for PMI Sydney, just as others in PMI and my professional work trust me to make a difference for them.
