Tami Manevitch, PMP

Tami has been a PMI member and PMP certified since 2021. With many years of experience in semiconductor manufacturing, automotive manufacturing and software development, she’s had project management experience in a wide range of organizations and applications. Leading up to project management, she’s worked in Quality Systems, Quality Assurance, Engineering & Reliability, Document Control and Vendor Management. 

After years of being a serial volunteer for youth development and environmental causes, she has turned her attention to PMI where she has served as the Volunteer Coordinator and was recently appointed by the PMIWIC Board to the VP of Membership position, pro tem, to serve the remainder of the existing term. When she’s not at work, you can find her spending time with her husband, two adult children and a granddaughter exploring and learning about Idaho.

Tami holds a BS in Microelectronic Engineering from Rochester Institute of Technology and an Executive Masters of Organization Development from Bowling Green State University (Ohio).  

VP of Finance:  Responsible for the management, oversight and reporting of PMIWIC funds.

Joseph Bailey

For the role of VP of Finance, I submit for your consideration my current role as a VP and Officer in Corporate Trust, and as a project manager since 2007 with the following focuses:

– IT Project Management – Agile (Scrum) for Ops: 3.5 years
– Financial Project Management – Agile (Scrum Hybrid): 2011 – present (~13 years)

To maximize value, we implemented the knowledge areas and process groups under the Project Management Institute’s outline of project management alongside the bank’s proprietary process flow, which means it’s a one-of-a-kind hybrid role.

In assisting my Director, the Product Manager for the bank, we tracked enhancements to the financial software, and worked as a liaison between Ops and Corporate Trust. With my promotion in 2011, we moved from Salt Lake to Boise as a non-attorney document reviewer, and Financial Project Manager for Corporate Trust with oversight responsibilities.

I’m interested in the position because I think I can do good for this regional team by providing value to the members. I assume the budgeting of the charter will be done by the board, and with my financial background the learning curve should be relatively short. As a project manager, I’m used to working in medium to large groups on financial projects.

The group can leverage my relationship management experience with the municipalities and volunteer organizations. I served as co-chair of the Paint-A-Thon for Zions Bank, and board member for the Boise Art Show. Past member for the West Ada Neighborhood Association (now dissolved), and Savor Idaho, which promotes Idaho Wine Masters Class for Idaho. Past member of the Freemasons.

My goals for this position is to expand my network and meet other types of project managers, which I’m doing as a member, but I think it will prove to be more fruitful when I’m able to help with the board and see the charter’s vision. I’m hopeful it may open doors that I didn’t know existed.

VP of Membership: Responsible for addressing the needs of chapter membership, including service delivery, recruiting and retaining members.

Jennifer Koskella, PMP, CSM

I want to be the VP of Membership because I want others to know what an exceptional group this is and what it has to offer, professionally and personally. 

I have been a PMIWIC member since 2017, when I earned my PMP.  The PMIWIC sponsored bootcamp courses were what attracted me to the organization and its camaraderie, support and opportunities afforded to me as a member are what keep me engaged.

I will seek out new opportunities to grow the chapter membership and introduce others to this wonderful resource as well as find ways to re-engage some of the current members in our monthly events.

VP of Technology: Responsible for addressing the technology, technology support and technology training needs of the board of directors and executive volunteers.
