Monthly Luncheon: May 16th
Ready to be engaged? Ready to win some prizes? Then keep reading!
The PMBOK, 5th edition was released almost six months ago and will become the official standard on July 31, 2013. As with the last two versions, this PMBOK continues to grow in size, depth, and clarity. Learn why the PMBOK grew by 80 pages, five processes, and for the first time since its initial publication in 1994, added a new knowledge area! Aside from the new knowledge area, the new PMBOK adds a new process to Scope, one to Time, and takes two away from Communications. Did we mention the new knowledge area adds four processes?
This will be a fun, interactive session. Come ready to be engaged, have fun, and win [worthless] prizes!

Volunteer to be a PAT
Trident United Way’s Day of Caring brings the community together to get things done and to create partnerships that can last year round. The success of this event hinges in large part on the quality of volunteer projects. Enter the Project Assessment Team (PAT) volunteers. Agency and school staff are experts about their programs, the people they serve and their role in the community. PAT volunteers are experts at project planning and implementation. Imagine the awesome result when the two work together to craft and execute a plan to accomplish needed tasks and to manage well a most valuable resource…volunteers! Serving as a PAT volunteer is a great opportunity to flex your project management muscles, make a difference in our community…and earn PDU credits to boot! Sally Burnett, CVA., is the community volunteer coordinator for Trident United Way’s 2-1-1 program and coordinator for the annual Day of Caring community-wide service event. These opportunities are perfect ways in which you can support the community by employing your project management skills.
