Author: Adi Muslic, PMP, VP Sponsors & Partners

 Dear Chapter members and newsletter subscribers,

Every new year is exciting (at least at the beginning) as we do not know what it will bring to us. So let me start by wishing you a happy and healthy 2023.

As you may not want to read through the entire article, here are the main points I would like to share with you:  PMI Switzerland communities, PM Conference 2023 ,You and the chapter ,Volunteering.

 

 

  1. PMI Switzerland communities

It is our desire to grow our community through new partnerships, focus groups and collaboration. We launched the initiative to build the Organizational Transformation Community of Practice (CoP) in Q4 2022. I am happy to confirm that we have full support from the PMI Brightline Initiative / Organizational Transformation team. We will be sharing more details in the coming weeks. And we are going to do even more. We are taking steps towards creation of the Wicked Problem Solving CoP and we are talking about creation of a Project Portfolio Management CoP.


We just launched the Positive Impact program (you can read about it in Marco’s article). And we are developing our Academia Outreach program to improve our collaboration with universities and engage with young generations interested in project management.
We are also partnering with other professional associations in Switzerland to extend our community. And we are actively collaborating with other PMI chapters in Europe to improve experience and knowledge sharing.

 

If any of the above initiatives resonates with you - join us. The link to the contact us form is at the bottom of the article.

 

  1. PM Conference 2023

Following the remarkable success of the 2022 PM Conference, we started preparations for the 2023 edition. We are currently looking for the venue, brainstorming around the conference theme and testing doing it in an agile way. In the meantime, I invite you to watch the highlights of the last conference on our YouTube channel: https://youtu.be/BCkJqnMnfNc

  1. You and the chapter

We are looking for new opportunities to increase your engagement and interaction with us - your PMI chapter. We are preparing a survey to learn more about your needs and interests. However, do not wait for the survey. Talk to us. You can find all board members in the About Us section and on LinkedIn. You are just a click away to talk to us.
Do you have ideas you would like to share with us? Would you like us to organize an event on a specific subject? Setup a workshop? Have an industry or topic based networking event?

 

Let us know. Use LinkedIn or the link at the end.

 

  1. Volunteering

The best way to make y(our) chapter do what you like it to do is to become a volunteer. It gives you plenty of opportunities to make a difference. It can be a positive impact project, a community of practice, an event organization role, a digital transformation project, or a launch of a new initiative.
You do not need to worry about time or commitments. We are very flexible about your volunteering hours and it’s you who decide how much you want to contribute.

Looking forward to seeing you in 2023.
