I would like to begin by congratulating our board and membership on a successful AGM 2015. This year's event was highlighted by an excellent speaker, followed by our election of directors. We were fortunate to have members interested in joining our board again this year, and I think we have a great group moving forward for 2015-2016.
Our board is now actively planning new events for our members and building on our successes. Our inaugural PMP Prep Course is moving along well with another offering becoming available in the fall, while we are also busy planning our next lunch and learn for June.
Continue to stay tuned to our website for updates and we look forward to seeing you at an event soon!
