John Burbank: Volunteer Of The Quarter - April 2021 - June 2021

The PMI Sacramento Valley Chapter thanks and recognizes you for your outstanding efforts!

John Burbank

How long have you been volunteering for PMI-SVC?

I have only been a volunteer for a couple of years. I started out helping on a few technical issues that Viji and Brad needed assistance on. After that, I started doing the PMI submissions for the meetings, which is what I am doing now.

What do you enjoy about being a volunteer for the Chapter?

I really want people to be successful, so I do what I can to further the organization and the people within it. The PMI-SVC is a great organization with a large base of volunteers at various levels that make this organization grow and thrive. I am proud to be part of a group that has so many volunteers, bringing together their talents to build the PMI-SVC into a great organization.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I enjoy spending time with my lovely wife of 42 years, traveling, reading, or just hanging out together. I can also be found in my workshop making sawdust. I like working with wood, discovering new and interesting things to make.
