PMI India officials and leaders, and chapter presidents and representatives at the meet in Hyderabad
PMI India and All India Chapter Presidents’ Meet
PMI India and the eight chapter presidents came together to discuss ways to collaborate with each other and strengthen chapter activities across India. The meet, in the Golkonda Resort in Hyderabad on 30 June and 1 July, was the first of its kind organized by PMI India. The Chapter Presidents’ Meet will now be an annual feature in the PMI India events calendar.
The main objective of the meet was to come out with action plans for programs identified by PMI India along with the chapters. The meet helped PMI India get a better understanding of the expectations that the chapters have from PMI India and the areas of collaboration between the chapters and PMI India. The meet discussed ways to improve member retention, grow the volunteer base, build relationships and alliances with academia, and explore new revenue streams for chapters. The participants also received updates on the PMI India Champion Program.
A similar meeting was held in April in Colombo, Sri Lanka which saw the participation of presidents and chapter representatives from region 11, that is western Asia, along with PMI officials. Themed “SWOT Sharing and Strategy rainstorming”, the meeting was attended by 13 chapter leaders from India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, along with representatives from the PMI Asia Pacific Service Center and PMI India.
The July meeting in Hyderabad saw participation from the chapters, PMI leaders, and PMI India. Besides the chapter presidents and representatives, the meeting had Mr. Raj Kalady, Mr. Ramam Atmakuri, member, PMI Chapter Member Advisory Group; Mr. Tejas Sura, PMI Regional Mentor; Dr. Subhash Rastogi, member Community Engagement Committee, PMI Educational Foundation and Mr. Ketharinath Kamalanathan, chair, Champion Advisory Committee.
