Are you ready to act? Are you ready to motivate? Are you ready to lead?
If so, the Northeast Indiana Chapter of PMI has three leadership opportunities.
In May 2015, the chapter president, Dan Zilai, stepped down due to a job relocation. At that time, the president elect, Dale Vollenweider, assumed the position of president and he plans to complete his full term through 2017. This means the president elect position for 2016 – 2017 is open.
Many thanks to Shirley Neuenschwander for her dedication and many years of service to the chapter. Shirley’s term expires at the end of 2015, leaving the VP of Membership open for the 2016 – 2017 term.
The final VP position is Professional Development. Mike Ruiz will complete his first term in this office, but is planning to run for a second term.
Per the chapter bylaws, any chapter member in good standing can be a candidate for the Board positions. If you are interested, please complete a nomination for the already created volunteer opportunity in the PMI Volunteer Relationship Management System.
Benefits as serving as a chapter vice-president includes:
