President's Message

Happy 2019!
I first want to say thank you to our exiting board members: Dan, Cheryl, Sid, Michael and Roland. Your hard work and determination have made PPRC the success it is. Welcome to our new VPs: Barbara, Sarah, Eldy and Robert. I am excited for all the great things we’ll work on together this year. 
As I mentioned in our January Chapter Meeting, the Board is focusing on three major strategic topics this year: the volunteering experience, the monthly chapter meetings, and workshops/PDU events. Over the next few months, we will revisit these topics and our strategies to improve them, breaking out the projects into bite-sized deliverables. So, more to come on that.
We will also have more emphasis on Agile methodologies. Aaron Sever, our new Director of Agile Education, will work to expand our knowledge and utilization of Agile, thus aligning us with PMI’s focus. 
Finally, a huge thank you to our PPRC chapter members. :) We would not exist without you! We have a lot of work ahead of us this year, and why we need your help! Please take the time to review what positions are available or reach out to Sarah Mandrekar, our VP of Volunteers, to discuss ways you could help the Board/organization and fulfill your passion. 
In closing, I am super excited about this endeavor! I always thought quoting songs was cheesy, but it’s appropriate for this scenario. Every time I go to a PPRC board meeting or event, I crank up Alicia Keys’ “Unthinkable (I’m Ready)” because it sums up my feelings: 
If we do the unthinkable would it make us look crazy
Or would it be so beautiful either way I'm sayin'
If you ask me I'm ready
And I hope you're ready too.
