Recently, many information providers, associations and companies asked for consent to continue sending information. This is due to the introduction of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on 25 May 2018. Although Switzerland is not in the EU, companies in Switzerland are also impacted if they have contact with people residing in the European Union, which is the case for PMI Switzerland.
We were able to spare you from asking for your consent because we already have it. When you became member of PMI/PMI Switzerland, you gave us the consent to contact you for PMI/PMI Switzerland related matters and for any other matters, such as the Chapter Newsletter or the Events Email push lists. You needed to register specifically and already have the possibility to opt out, which means that PMI Switzerland is compliant for that aspect.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Dear Members and Newsletter Subscribers,
As project managers it is our mission to enable change - it is the very core of our profession and without the omnipresent need for change we would become obsolete..... At the same time our very profession is also in a constant change - what was 5 years ago state of the art project management is today already outdated....
PMI Switzerland offers a community for an always changing profession that enables change itself. It is only logical that our chapter can only accomplish this, when it changes with it and adjusts itself to the constant changing needs of our members.
The new year will start with a big change for PMI Switzerland - half the board will be renewed and a new president will take over and might set sail into a new direction. Fresh ideas will be put into action by new board members full of energy, especially since they know they were truly elected by you. This year it was not a formality - you really had and made your choice! Thanks a lot to all who voted!
I wish you all the best for the new year and hope, that whatever changes in your life will be for the better.
Marina Satapathy, PMP and Carlos Martinez, PMP - Election Committee

As I write this message I look out from my window in the train. The sky is bright crimson red, the trees have beautiful autumn colors and the leaves are falling … the year end is coming closer, much faster than I imagined. As VP of Sponsoring and PMIEF I think it is a good time to share our success with you and tell you what exciting things our volunteer’s team has been working on.
I am delighted to tell you that our sponsors feel proud and are enthusiastic to be a part of the PMI family. We have been warmly welcome by an increasing number of sponsors who are interested in our chapter. On behalf of the board and the chapter I recognize and appreciate our Sponsors participation to enable us to come this far.
At PMIEF we champion project management for educational and social good in Switzerland. Our aim is to inspire and transform lives of Young people through the use of Project management knowledge. We have been working closely with Teachers and APE (Association Parent d’élèves) in Romandie area. We are honored to be recognized and elected in the Parent’s Council of a local school in Zurich.
For plan for the next year:
I’d like to thank again our new and loyal sponsors and our members whose support has enabled our chapter to come this far. I look forward to meeting you again at our events.
