First of all, my best wishes for a great New Year. I hope to meet you in person this year during one of our events.
Finally, the strange year 2020 has come to end and has rolled over into a hopeful 2021 with lots of ideas from our PMI board leaders. We are eager to present them to you. But, as expected the year starts with our virtual national assembly on Monday the 25th. The invitation and program will follow soon. We will present the financial results of the past year, our forecast for this year and our calendar for 2021 (not complete yet). I will also open a little window about some ideas from our board for this year.
I hope to meet many of you during our online meeting on the 25th, but we promise to organize a “New Year’s” drink later this year, as soon as we are allowed to do so!
We have also started preparing the PMfair for October. We are planning for a real event, but if things go wrong we can switch back to the formula of last year: a digital collaboration between different countries. We will keep both options open but our preference is for a traditional event in a nice venue.
Don’t forget to contact me if you have questions, remarks or suggestions on how to improve our PMI Belgium chapter support towards you. Especially, good suggestions are always welcome. We are looking forward to new ideas and initiatives that can make the chapter more fun and provide you all the information you want.
In 2017, the PMI Belgium chapter launched the GROW Program. That year, the program was very successful with 11 pairing mentor-mentees and very positive feedback has been shared by both the mentors and the mentees on the value this program created.
