The PMI Sacramento Valley Chapter thanks and recognizes you for your outstanding efforts.
How long have you been volunteering for PMI-SVC?
I have been volunteering with the PMI Sacramento Valley Chapter since I joined the half-dozen volunteers serving on the Government Forum committee, about 16 years ago. Over time, the size of the committee has become smaller, now with a couple of us securing presenters, along with some part time assistance with the venue. This is a truly lean (agile?) operation!
