    THANKFUL!

    By Amy Stonesifer, PMI Houston Chapter President

    Do you recognize your teammates’ successes? Do you take the time to acknowledge accomplishments by the team or individuals? Do you celebrate the people around you?

    In post-game interviews of the last few weeks, we’ve heard the Houston Astros recognize their teammates for their accomplishments.  Jose Altuve said, “I love that guy” when speaking about Justin Verlander.  Alex Bregman gave examples of how his teammates impacted the team. I’ve heard George Springer tout Altuve as the heart of the team. Veteran Carlos Beltran encourages the younger players and praises their play.

    Each of us need to remember our role in providing recognition and celebrating accomplishments of the individuals and teams we lead. Job satisfaction comes not just from loving what you do but feeling a part of the team and appreciated for what we do. You have the power to positively impact people.

    Follow the lead of our amazing Houston Astros!  Recognize and celebrate those around you.

    November is the month we focus on Thanksgiving. I am thankful for the individuals that make up our Board of Directors and thank them for serving our organization. Each individual has made a commitment to develop a volunteer team to support you our members.

    Thank you for a great 2017!

    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.
