Multitasking: The myth that is destroying your brain
Description: In modern times, perhaps the most widely held, oft repeated, and potentially destructive self-deception is that human beings can multi-task. This pernicious and dangerous behavior has been raising blood pressure, increasing stress levels, destroying relationships, causing accidents, and damaging the lives and brains of all those that attempt to practice it. In this workshop we will use practical experiments free us from the false belief that multitasking is possible, and demonstrate how it is not only counterproductive buy down-right damaging. Based upon a survey of sociological research, medical journal articles, and practical experience ripped from the headlines Ken hopes to share his own experience as a recovering multitasker and help you begin your journey on the path of less-stress, better mental health, focused effort and better relationships with other people.

Happy fall, everyone! Our inaugural New Member Dinner event in August was a success! Board members Clifford Clarke, Rich Laudeman and Aaron Brune hosted new members for a pizza dinner. If you are a new member within the last 12 months, please consider coming to the next new member dinner event.
The next PMI-sponsored Leadership Institute event occurs in October in Chicago. Your board will use this event to restart its strategic planing effort for 2018. This leadership conference is a benefit of board leadership, and also something for resumes and employers which demonstrates a commitment to learning and self-improvement.
We also are looking to plan a student-only event this year. Anyone who identifies as a PM student (either in our chapter-sponsored classes at IPFW or elsewhere) will be invited. Watch this space for updates on that exciting additional programming.
Also don't forget to check in VRMS for your interests to volunteer--our profession's future depends on you!
WE NEEDCERTIFICATION JUDGES
Project Management is a hot topic in Fort Wayne! We have a PMP exam prep class going on -AT THE SAME TIME- as our PM Certification class. Exciting times!
We will need judges again for our PM Certification Student’s projects. Everyone enjoys this effort. Honestly, it seems like the judges have more fun than anyone. We even made the cover of the IPFW catalog last year as well as a few IPFW YouTube videos.
