November 2020 President's Letter: PMI Houston Continues To Adapt!
PMI Houston Continues To Adapt!
LaToshia Norwood, PMP
PMI Houston's 2020 President
We made history last month!
October 19th - 20th, we hosted the PMI Houston Conference and Expo virtually for the first time EVER, and it was AMAZING. All of the marathon meetings, early mornings, late nights, quick changes, and pivots were definitely worth it.
We worked for months to curate a virtual conference that would carry on the legacy of delivering compelling sessions and workshops featuring dynamic speakers representing diverse industries, and I am so proud to say, “We did it”!
In two days over 20+ industry experts from construction, innovation, transportation, and healthcare (to name a few) took conference attendees on a journey to explore the power of the past and provided tips and tools that can be leveraged to be a force in the future.
Yes, the conference schedule was jammed packed with great content. In addition, we recruited one of the hottest DJs in Houston to mix it up on the ones and twos, an award-winning mixologist who shared the secrets to preparing the perfect cocktail, and an incredible Zumba instructor.
Yes, we missed seeing each of you, giving random high fives, flossing our industry badges, taking impromptu pictures, and grabbing snacks during the break, but we’re so glad you were still able to give a few “virtual” high fives, network with other professionals, flex your professional muscles, and earn PDUs.
And, while there are too many high-fives and thank you’s to count, I do know that we can always count on our Board of Directors and incredible volunteers. They always rise to the occasion and make magic happen, and work diligently to serve you and the entire project management community.
Please join me in thanking the entire team of volunteers, our sponsors, speakers and of course the attendees who made THE very best decision to secure their VIRTUAL seats for the PMI Houston 2020 Conference and Expo.
