Bob Frasier, PMI Houston Chapter 2019 President

Welcome to Fall!

First, thank you to the many members who have reached to me asking about board positions and volunteering to help the chapter. As a volunteer run organization, your willingness to help the chapter is what allows us to serve our 4,500+ members locally.

The independent election committee is currently working to review the nominees and interview top candidates for the election slate. Once the slate is completed, you’ll be receiving a notification to vote for the open positions for 2020 Board.

Second, our board of directors will be attending PMI’s Leadership Institute Meeting in Philadelphia. The Leadership Institute Meeting is held each fall and allows our board to hear directly from PMI leadership and other chapters about items we can bring back to our members locally.

As you know, PMI joined us for our 2019 Houston conference this June. We had PMI President Sunil Prashara, PMI BOD Director LuAnn Piccard from the PMI Global Board as well as Region Representatives Amy Stonesifer (PMIH Conference PM) and Lauren Machol (VP of Professional Development) attend our just concluded annual PMIH Conference.

Based on their conference experience, Amy and Lauren have been asked to present at the Leadership Institute Meeting (LIM)! Congratulations to both Amy and Lauren and a huge Thank You to all the conference volunteers for their support.

Finally, we will be celebrating our 45th Anniversary at Cadillac Bar. The team has had a huge response with reservations and expect this one will sell out. If you haven’t signed up and are still considering, grab your spot!

Waiting for fall weather,

Bob
