Hello from the PMI Madison South Central Wisconsin Chapter Executive Board!
Hard to believe it is October already. There is a new crispness in the air and the leaves are turning colors. Halloween is just around the corner. The signs of fall tell us it is time to get back to work planning for next year’s PDD. We have reviewed all of the survey responses and made some changes that I hope all of you will like.
We have secured a new location for next year. Much of the feedback we received after this year relates to the venue being confusing with sponsors and keynotes on the main floor but breakout sessions two floors above. To address this, we have reserved the Madison Marriott West for PDD 2017! This location will have all events on one floor with additional room for breakout sessions while allowing our sponsors to be more accessible during breaks. We will be looking into setup, theme, decorations, food, and keynote speakers soon so please reach out to me or one of the other board members if you are interested in volunteering to help plan the event.
This year PDD will be on Friday May 12, 2017. We had a successful after party last year and this sets us up for an even better celebration this year. It also turned out to be a day where we could have then entire convention center area for PMI.
Save the Date! I hope to see you all at PMI Madison South Central Wisconsin Chapter’s Professional Development Day (PDD) 2017.
-Brian Sagedal, PMP (President Elect)
