Volunteering has always been at the heart of PMI. It's thanks to all our volunteers at PMI Switzerland that we are able to provide all these events, newsletters and other services! But to those who are always giving, there is also a time of giving back. And this is what we used to call the "volunteer day". This yearly event is organized as a training for volunteers, but this year, we decided to do it differently. And for the first time ever, this day became a co-creation exercise for our strategic goals at PMI Switzerland for 2020!!

Who best to ask what they'd like to do next year than those who will actually make it happen? This is why a group of 30 highly motivated people gathered in Bern last Saturday and spent the day together, brainstorming on new ideas, elaborating new initiatives and building teams to make them happen. Six key areas where identified: Career opportunities, PMI Branding, Events, Knowledge Sharing, Chapter Organization and Networking. And for each of them, several ideas listed, discussed and agreed upon.

My purpose in writing these lines now it not to give you a full overview (this will come later), but rather a little teaser. Imagine for example new types of events, co-created and delivered from members to members. And this on any topic you might like... Doesn't it sound interesting? If yes, stay with us for more... coming soon!
