PMI-SVC Mentor Program Announcement
Dear PMI-SVC Members,
PMI-SVC is excited to announce the start of the third iteration of our Chapter’s Mentor Program! Having received positive feedback from participants in the first two iterations that they found the program valuable we are expanding it to accept more participants. This is the opportunity for our chapter members to mentor those new to project management or to learn new skills from others in the field with more experience.
Iteration 3 of the Mentor Program session is scheduled to begin in January 2021 and last 20 weeks. Once applications are received, the Mentor Program Team will identify pairs of individuals, then a mandatory kick-off meeting will be held to orient participants on the program.
If you are interested in being a mentor or mentee, please fill out the form at the following link by January 10, 2021 (the sooner the better):
For this program monthly virtual or in-person meetings are required. Mentor/Mentee pairs establish their own goals, plan, and cadence but the most successful pairs will have open communication and frequent check-ins. Up to 10.5 PDUs in the “Giving Back” category will be awarded based on attendance and completeness of deliverables.
Program requirements include:
- Attending a kick-off meeting
- Establishing goals
- Meeting between Mentor and Mentees at least once per month
- Monthly meeting of all participants
- Attending a closing event; mentees present a brief report-out on goal status
Help us make this a rewarding endeavor and apply today!

Capucine Chatman: Volunteer Of The Quarter -October 2020 - December 2020
The PMI Sacramento Valley Chapter thanks and recognizes you for your outstanding efforts!
1. How long have you been volunteering for PMI-SVC?
I moved from St. Louis, Mo to Sacramento, California in June of 2019. I joined the PMI-SVC chapter and started volunteering in Nov/Dec of 2019 under the VP of Professional Development.
2. What roles have you filled?
I started as a Director of Dinner Meetings, now I am the Director of Forums. In 2021, I will be the new VP of Governance and Administration.
3. What do you enjoy about being a volunteer for the Chapter?
I enjoy giving back and learning new things. Being a volunteer allows me to do both. As a volunteer I have made many new connections and the PMI network allows me not only to share what I know but in exchange I am able to learn new skills/strategies from the membership. I am extremely passionate about project management, being a volunteer allows me to use my skill set to advance the profession.
4. What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I am creative. I paint, draw, bake and plant my garden. I also like to restore/rehab antique or old furniture. I also consider myself a professional student, I spend a lot of time reading, writing and learning about new technology and software.
