A Brand New Start!
I hope everyone is enjoying the last days of summer with family and friends. For me it was catching up with friends, seeing family, BBQs, vacation, kayaking, rock climbing, and chilling by the fire pit. The new PMI Westchester Board of Directors met over the summer to begin planning our next season and upcoming 15th anniversary. Back in August 2002, our founding father, Ed Mahler, started PMI Westchester. Now we celebrate our ever-growing chapter of 670+ members!!
One quick update...
The PMI Westchester Chapter is pleased to announce its Fall 2017 PMP Exam Preparation course, which will assist the PMP Certification candidate in preparing for the PMP Exam -- the four-hour exam required for this valuable globally-recognized credential. This course will be offered on the campus of the College of Westchester in White Plains, NY.
The 5 seven-hour sessions will be conducted on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m., starting on 14 Oct 2017 and ending on 18 Nov 2017 (skipping 11 Nov 2017).
There are a lot of things happening at PMI Westchester this month. We have changes to the bylaws ratification process, our Annual Business meeting (free to Chapter members) followed by a special speaker, to be held in Tarrytown, a neighboring Chapter's risk management course, and some summer plans.

We are all coming off the high from our 2017 Symposium Event!! Jack Duggal, Linda Van Valkenburgh, and John Sherlock rocked the house with all the great information given to our participants. Our hosts at Manhattanville College were superb and everyone had a fabulous time. The overwhelming positive energy surrounded us all day. I could not be more pleased with the team who made it all happen; they knocked it out of the park. Most of all, thank you to everyone who turned out for this great event.
There are several things happening this month at PMI Westchester! First, Volunteer New York! will start the month off at our Chapter meeting, our Breakfast Roundtable group (which holds virtual meetings!) will be discussing how to “Conduct a Successful Virtual Meeting”, and then - our biggest event of the year - our 8th Annual Symposium (formerly called Professional Development Day), where you can earn up to 8 PDU's in one day, will be held on April 29th.

March…many people think of different things when they hear the name of this month: March Madness, St. Patrick’s Day, the arrival of Spring. For me, it’s the anticipation of seeing things come alive again like the trees blooming, a robin landing on my lawn, wildlife once in hibernation suddenly scampering around. It is also the excitement of our Chapter’s upcoming April Annual Symposium...
Happy Year of the Rooster!! Not only is 2017 the Year of the Rooster, but it’s also combined with one of the five elements, which only occurs once every 60 years. This year is a special Fire Rooster Year. When both a zodiac sign and an element are combined, it’s believed to affect one’s personality and destiny.
So why am I telling you these ancient Chinese beliefs?
