PMIWIC Celebrates 20 Years!

With Special Guest Speaker PMI Director, Randy Black, P Eng., PMP Presenting  “Are You Ready to be a Project Leader?” PMI Talent Triangle®


To celebrate this auspicious occasion, we will be celebrating at the Capital City Event Center, where we will have one room set up to serve a buffet style dinner, with tables where attendees can network, eat, and play a few “carnival style” games.  And, a second room dedicated to PMI Director, Randy Black’s presentation.  About 15 minutes before Randy presents his topic, the Board will present information on memberships, certifications, and make announcements on upcoming events, …during which time, PMIWIC President, Laurajean Rispens will highlight accomplishments and lifetime achievements of those members who have held PMI memberships for 20 years plus!


PMI Director, Randy Black’s presentation titled, “Are You Ready to be a Project Leader?” identifies the skills CEOs and organizations are seeking in project managers. During this presentation, you will learn how these skills – problem solving, adaptability, leadership, creativity and innovation, and emotional intelligence – align with the PMI Talent Triangle®.

PMI research shows that as the job market becomes more competitive, achieving the skills identified by the Talent Triangle increases your value in a world increasingly disrupted by innovation and technology. Randy will share personal experiences, as well as insights on emerging capabilities that
could help shape the future of project management.


Registration includes dinner and one drink ticket.  Dinner will be served buffet style with gluten-free, veggie options, coffee and water included.  No-host bar available.  Click HERE to register!
