Volunteer of the Month - October 2016
PMI Atlanta is pleased to announce October's Volunteer of the Month – congratulations, Susan Allen!!!
For over 10 years Susan the has served as a volunteer with the PMI Atlanta Chapter. She serves as the Certification and Education Liaison Coordinator on the Certification and Education committee where she's been a diligent and indispensable asset.
Susan has been a long-standing invaluable volunteer with PMI Atlanta and who's regarded as an incomparably, reliable leader. She continually engages with PMI Atlanta members to find volunteer opportunities that are a good fit. She really enjoys this position because it allows her to interact with many other volunteers serving. Additionally, what adds to her volunteer awesomeness of being so dedicated to our PMI Atlanta Chapter is the fact that she actually resides in the Athens area.
Moving forward, Susan plans on establishing a legacy of being one of the longest tenured volunteers of PMI Atlanta, how outstanding is that! Many PMI Atlanta members have an amorousness for the field of Project Management, however for her it goes even deeper. Susan believes the field of Project Management is such an indelible way of life for her, that it's part of her genetic make up. With that mindset, it's no surprise why she's been so successful in PMI Atlanta and will undoubtedly triumph in pursuit of her legacy.
When time permits in her assiduous life, Susan states she enjoys reading in her leisure time. With now knowing of Susan's deep admiration for the Project Management Profession, we should not be surprised if some of that leisure reading may include the "action packed" PMBOK. Susan's passion for Project Management along with her devotedness of service and volunteering with PMI Atlanta are all qualities that comprise this month’s “Stupendous" VOM".
