New Galleria Venue Location Announcement!

    Announcing the New Galleria Location for 2018

    The PMI Houston Programs department is pleased to announce that we have a new Galleria venue meeting location for 2018.  We are grateful to the PMI Houston membership for their patience while we found this new home!  We completely understand that using multiple venue locations in 2017 and the cancellation of the Galleria Christmas party was disruptive and something more permanent was needed.  Through the changes in 2017 we were diligently focused on finding a permanent venue for 2018 that would meet all of our organization’s needs.

    The new Galleria venue is located at 5718 Westheimer Rd. Houston, TX 77057.  It is near the intersection of Westheimer and Chimney Rock Rd.  We would like to thank DCP Midstream LLC for sponsoring the venue.  We especially thank Mohammad Ali Minhas of PMI Houston for finding this terrific location and working out the details of the sponsorship with DCP Midstream.  Galleria venue meetings will be held on the second Wednesday of every other month, starting in January.  The exact meeting dates for 2018 are January 10th, March 14th, May 9th, July 11th, September 12th and November 14th.

    At our first meeting on January 10th, the PMI Houston Board of Directors will give a pre-dinner presentation.  Board members will introduce themselves and discuss PMI Houston’s strategic vision, goals and initiatives for 2018.  Following dinner, our main speaker will be Jill Almaguer.  Ms. Almaguer will discuss risk management and response planning to minimize impact to projects.  We are very excited to hear this presentation.  At the beginning of the New Year there are many projects in the planning or start-up stages.  As project managers we understand the importance of risk planning and management to ensure project success.  What a perfect time to discuss risk management!

    Thanks once again to DCP Midstream LLC for sponsoring our Galleria venue location in 2018.  This is going to be a fantastic year for PMI Houston.  We hope you can join us on January 10th to experience the new venue location and help us start the year out strong!!
