October Monthly Luncheon
Join us on Thursday, October 15, 2015 as we welcome Rick Brenner to speak about Managing Projects in Fluid Environments!
He will also be the guest speaker at our October Special Event the previous day, Wednesday, October 14. See above for more info on that event!
Rick Brenner is principal of Chaco Canyon Consulting. He works with people in dynamic problem-solving organizations that are making products so novel or complex that they need state-of-the-art teamwork and stronger relationships among their people.
This program is especially valuable for people involved in projects that are operating in dynamic environments. It is of special interest to those managing projects that are not regarded as mission-critical for the enterprise. Leaders, executives, managers, project managers, program managers, and project team members can all benefit.
** Please note: You must register for each event separately if you wish to attend both**

Hey! Still looking to get your PMP certification?
A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition should be used as a study reference if taking the PMP® exam. Though the Fifth edition is very similar in many ways to earlier editions, the test is based only on the Fifth edition and using an earlier version may not cover the changes that were made.
Note: Looking for opportunities for more education? Check out the "Education Opportunities" here!
PMPs are required to attain 60 PDUs within a 3-year period. PDUs are classified in five categories, and PMI Members can track and record PDUs online.
CAPMS are not required to attain any PDUs; however, CAPMs are only allowed to hold the CAPM designation for a maximum of 5 years. After 5 years, CAPMs must apply for PMP certification or retake the CAPM exam.
