    From the president

    By Terry Minhas, PMI Houston Chapter President

    Happy New Year! Now that you have had a great Holiday and enjoyed your time with loved ones, it’s time to get back to work and make a valuable contribution for a better and safer planet for our children!

    PMI Houston begins the year with a re-shaped Board of Directors (BOD), composed of incumbents and newly elected directors. Thanks to all for actively participating in the electoral process. The BOD is eager to serve you with renewed enthusiasm. Let me take this opportunity to thank the outgoing BOD members for their dedication, service and improvements made over last year. It has been a great team effort!

    As we all make personal goals for the coming year, so PMI Houston has done its share and worked diligently to set the Chapter goals for 2018. The senior leadership, with the BOD, spent a good part of the last quarter revisiting strategy, making necessary adjustments and setting the annual targets accordingly. This year, we’ll strive to improve the quality of our offerings, engage the membership through additional services, expand our sponsorship base and work closely with our volunteers who are the backbone of our organization. You will be hearing more about this in the coming days.

    I am confident that we will have a great year with your active engagement in the services we provide. As always, your feedback is very important to us.

    I, along with my team, wish you success and good fortune in 2018. We look forward to serving you better in the coming year.

    Best Regards,

    Terry Minhas

    Questions about your membership: PMI Hardship Provision

    A "Hardship Provision" is available to any PMI member whose financial condition has changed drastically and sufficiently so that a member would have difficulty renewing their membership.  A member must be in good standing for at least three previous years to qualify for the hardship provision. Under this provision, a member is granted a waiver for one year of PMI membership dues and one year of dues for membership in any two PMI Chapters of which the applicant was a member the previous year. The Hardship Provision may be granted for a maximum of two years for each member.  This information can also be located on the back of the renewal invoice that members receive. To apply for consideration send a letter explaining the nature of the hardship, along with the invoice, to the attention of the Manager, Membership Services prior to the membership expiration date. Please remember that any incorrect or untrue statements made by a member are in violation of the PMI Member Ethical Standards-Member Standards of Conduct and may lead to the initiation of an ethics complaint in accordance with the PMI Member Ethics Case Procedures.
