President's Corner


Happy Thanksgiving!

The PMI Alaska Chapter Board is GRATEFUL for our members, guests at our events, training partners, and sponsors who are on this journey together with us to support and invest in our community.  


We hope you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. Please take a moment to reflect and be thankful for what is going well in your life, big or small. We are THANKFUL to each of you for supporting our local chapter.



Board Updates - Global Conference

PMI AK is sending 4 board members to the PMI Global Conference in Las Vegas this year.  PMI global has provided grants to the chapter to help offset costs of travel, hotel, and registration.  

  • The AK PMI Chapter has been asked to participate in a panel discussing our successful ATP partnerships, which supports the new requirement from PMI global to have authorized ATP providers teaching the PMP Bootcamps.


The board will collaborate with other chapters, attend learning sessions, and help with a social good project to strengthen our knowledge and abilities to operate in these "new" times.  Below are just a couple examples of sessions we are signed up for:

  • Lessons Learned around the globe regarding operating the chapters
  • Hybrid events, pros/cons, methods
  • ATP success stories
  • Tools PMI Offers
  • PMI's new Construction Certification
  • Industry Trends, and so much more! 



Board Updates - Chapter Budget

The Chapter budget is under construction. The requirements for the local chapter have changed and the board is exploring those and adapting our budget accordingly.  Here are some highlights we are putting together based on feedback and changes:

  • Wicked Problem-Solving Clinic
  • Networking Events
  • Hackathon / Unconference
  • Global Megatrends Conceptual Study
  • Table Topics - Knowledge areas such as stakeholders, schedule, scope
  • Mat-Su Meetings - 2 per quarter - one lunch and learn and one evening meeting


If you are interested in volunteering, we have a few board positions open!  Please contact president@pmiak.org!
