"Learn to Attract the Right Projects, Influence, and Communicate More Effectively than Ever!"  

The art of influence is part science and part practice. At the core of getting things done in the workplace is being able to communicate effectively.  Researchers from Spikes Covell found that 57% of projects fail due to a breakdown in communications. If we can learn to attract the projects we want, influence the direction of our work, and communicate more effectively we can advance our careers and get the most out of every interaction in both our business and personal life!

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn tactics to attract the right people and projects that can help catapult you forward in your career!

2. Uncover tips to communicate verbally and non-verbally that have direct influence in the workplace.

3. Hone and polish your communication skills to help make all your projects successful!

Event Calendar Notes

The Event Calendar indicates upcoming all Chapter events for the current calendar year and beyond.

Chapter Events

It is anticipated that each PMI-DVC monthly event meeting planning process commences at least several months in advance.  For 2021 all events will be virtual unless Government Regulations permit us to hold in-person meetings.  The Virtual platform we plan to use in 2021 will be Zoom.  We intend to use features of Zoom such as Breakout Rooms and Polling during planned events. Event attendance typically ranges from to 200 to 250 attendees.  The program committee does review the various Project Management and related subjects and ensures we are not repeating a subject on a frequent basis.  The Program Committee also awards Professional development Units or PDU’s at the conclusion of each event.  The transmission of PDU’s to PMI usually occurs within 2 weeks after the meeting has concluded. We always welcome our Chapter Members comments and suggestions via a feedback survey, which is distributed at the conclusion of each event.  If a member cannot send their comments on the survey, they can send their comments directly to Frank McKeown VP Professional Development at or via cell at 917-295-9419.
