Hello Chapter Members and Volunteers!

Let me start by first saying how thankful I am for the opportunity to serve as President of the PMI Western Idaho Chapter this year! I want to thank each of you for your commitment to our chapter and for your dedication to the Project Management profession.  I also want to extend my heartfelt appreciation to my fellow board members and to the executive volunteers who contribute their time and their talents to accomplish great things in the name of PMIWIC.

I am excited for our chapter’s continued growth and for the opportunity to establish new relationships, expand connections with students, veterans and with community partners, all while continuing to offer quality training, development, and educational programs. I am also looking forward to the growth of our chapter’s mentorship program. 

This year our Chapter’s theme is #ACHIEVE and the Board of Directors and I have a laser focus on our chapter’s mission and a commitment to partnering with each of you to achieve great things for our chapter, our profession, and for each other.  We will continue to invest in monthly professional events, such as monthly Lunch and Learns, and networking events, as well as offer an array of professional development opportunities including our Professional Development Days, Project Bites, Pinnacle and Alta Vista Boot Camp Classes, Micro Credentials, and Community Partner Volunteer Events.  We will also focus on supporting PMI Global efforts in our communities, providing local impact on the lives and careers of students and veterans across western Idaho. We are here to support you, to advance the profession, and to make us all better Project Managers.

I want to encourage you to get involved as our PMI chapter has so much to offer.  One of the most beneficial development opportunities provided by PMI is the opportunity to volunteer and achieve great things as a leader.  I challenge you to get involved and use your skills and your talents to help accomplish the mission of our PMI chapter.  Visit our Volunteer page for volunteer programs that might interest to you.  If you have an idea, we would love to hear it, so please feel free to send an email

I’m excited about the future of PMI Western Idaho Chapter, and I am honored to be your President for the coming year.  I expect great things and I hope you do too.​

Tanisha Townsend, President
