Project Management Round Robin Speed Dating
You’ve heard the term “Speed Dating”, but have you ever wanted to “Speed Learn” about different project management industries? Come to Advance Auto Parts September 10th for an evening of fast paced, round-robin project management discussions.
We will have multiple project management experts discussing their methodologies, types of projects, specific PM tools, how/if they use Agile project management and their stakeholders and what makes them unique. We will swap to a new discussion/table every 15 minutes – so prepare for a fast-paced evening of project management conversation and learning.
PMI-SWVA invites you to help celebrate the 50th Anniversary of PMI. Based on overwhelming response to the survey we sent out to the chapter membership we have planned a great day of PM comradery and family fun.
Join us Saturday, September 21st at Roanoke County’s beautiful Explore Park. Located on the Blue Ridge Parkway at milepost 115, the Explore Park offers great outdoor adventures including miles of hiking trails taking you through rolling hills and scenic areas of the Roanoke River up to Niagara dam. There are just as many great mountain biking trails, and great places to catch up on the area’s history from the first days of settlement in the area.
Some of the new attractions to this area are the Tree Top Quest which is located beside the visitor center, (the epicenter of our event), and the beautiful 18 hole disc golf course that’s just a short walk away. We hope to also offer Kayak and tubing floats with Blue Mountain Adventures on the river based on pre-registration interest.
For the fishing enthusiast there are miles of riverbank, or wading in locally famous waters for Striped Bass, Hybrid Bass, Muskie, and many more, bring your gear and your License.
We will plan activities starting around 10:00 am and a lunch between 12:30 and 2:30 brought to you by the PMI-SWVA Board of Directors. This is a free event for our chapter members and their families and guests. Registration for the Tree Top Quest and the Float adventure will be at a discount based on registration interest and payable the day of the event.
Registration is open now and will close by August 31 September 17th @ Midnight, please register early to facilitate planning. Please click on individual registration and you will then be asked to provide a count of attendees, your choice of food and activities.
Deadline to email us for your interest has been extended to the 5th of September.
