Hello PMI NL Chapter members, friends and supporters.
I just wanted to remind everyone that our social is this evening. Regretably, another commitment will prevent me from attending, but I hope as many of you as possible will make an effort to attend.
I look forward to being able to meet as many of you as possible at our next event.
Thank you, and enjoy mingling with Chapter friends and colleagues.
