THANKS to the Volunteers!

A heart warming "THANKS!" to the PMI members and family who volunteered their time to wrap gifts for underprivileged children the Saturday we had the first snowstorm of the season! It wasn't even for PDU's; just for the joy of giving! Eight of us sorted, wrapped and boxed gifts that were generously donated for boys and girls from infant to 14 years old. Alicia Ward, Manager of Volunteer Programs for the Open Door Foundation, does an amazing job coordinating the donations, the volunteers and distributing the gifts. It was a fun and fulfilling event.

Thanks again to Annesa Seemungal, Ken Kamber and his wife Donna, Priti Khatri, Richard Ferricane and his wife Mary Ellen, and Shauna Thompson
for showing up for PMI Westchester, Open Door, and the children!

Next volunteer activity: Site Captains for MLK Day on January 13th.

Message from the President - December 2017

As we approach the end of the year, it’s the perfect time to celebrate all our accomplishments this year. Our membership is soaring at 700 members, all of our programs have been well received, and we are slowly building our volunteer base. However, as we know, there is always room for improvement, and that’s exactly what I will be focusing on as I reflect on our accomplishments over the holiday.

This month we have a special event...

Message from the President - November 2017

We have returned from attending PMI’s Leadership Institute Meeting in Chicago, IL. We had the opportunity to hear, meet, and network with other chapter leaders from all over the country and the world. As the leadership team starts to work through all the potential ideas, I want to hear from you about how we can make your chapter more valuable. In the meantime, a few items I’m contemplating are possibly a lunchtime conference call by industry, networking events at a local business (hey, beer and wine making are projects), or partnering more with other volunteer organizations. If anything I’ve said sparks an interest...

Message from the President - October 2017

While the weather cannot make up its mind if it should still be summer or the start of autumn, PMI Westchester knows exactly what our forecast will be this month. We are back at Manhattanville College for our monthly Chapter meeting. If you did not have the chance to experience the beautiful setting of Reid Castle, you will this month. We have a live workshop entitled “The Memory Switch”, developed and presented by Matthew Goerke, one of America’s leading experts in the field of Memory Development. He will instruct you in the new advances in memory technology, as well as help you gain insight into how these methods are in direct alignment with helping you achieve both business and personal goals.

Also starting this month...

Message from the President - September 2017

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...

Message from the President - May 2017

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.

Message from the President - April 2017

There are several things happening this month at PMI Westchester!
