Join us for a historic celebration dinner, honoring PMI's 50th Anniversary! This event will reflect on the past, explaining the motivation for founding PMI. With this bit of history as a backdrop, we will then take a look at what the future holds for the project management profession.
PMI's first formal meeting was held right in your backyard, on the premises of Georgia Tech, in the fall of 1969. PMI Atlanta is honoring the birthplace of PMI by holding this special event at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center, a world class event facility, situated on campus in midtown Atlanta.
Network with your colleagues, while celebrating the enormous milestone for PMI. Networking will take place in the pre-funciton lobby and in the outdoor terrace. Have pictures taken with your friends and colleagues with the wrambling wreck in the backdrop! Cash bar is available.
Leaders from the PMI Atlanta Chapter will highlight PMI's Global Celebration of Service, and show how the Atlanta chapter leads by example in the form of giving back to the community.
The 50th Anniversary is a time to reflect on the achievements of project managers and recognize the progress made by the profession. We also see it as a time to pull together in service, contribute our collective skills and passion, and make a difference in the world together. To accomplish this, PMI is supporting the United Nations’ mission to align strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption, and take actions that advance societal goals.
James will discuss how the profession has matured over the last few decades. Where did we come from and how did PMI play a role in building a new profession. This look back at the people, places, and environment will not only tell us about our history but will help us to understand where project management may be headed and how you can influence that direction.
