Dear Practitioners,

We went to Hyderabad for a second time with our national conference, and this time too, we received a wonderful response. The sixth PMI India National Conference provided delegates three days of knowledge sharing across a variety of formats, ample opportunities for networking, and some fun moments to cherish.

We had seven keynote speakers who offered insights and ideas on ways to become better project managers. Early bird registrants received a bonus, pre-conference workshop on how to set up a project management office. The panel discussion threw up some keen insights on the way projects are managed in the government. Delegates got some useful tips on starting and managing entrepreneurial ventures in the interview. The case studies provided an excellent opportunity to understand project challenges and approaches in various industries. This year for the first time, we held a contest for technical paper presentations. We had two winners among the 21 papers presented.

The coveted PMI India Best Project of the Year 2014 awards were presented during the conference. Id like to congratulate all the winners and hope others emulate the best practices applied in these projects.

This year, we introduced some new features and enhanced some existing ones at the conference so that delegates take back some memorable moments with them. The state-ofthe-art Hyderabad International Convention Center was an excellent venue to host a conference of this stature. The conference mobile app with a number of interesting features, the bigger and better project management quiz, and the photo booth added some fun moments.

The conference with more than 900 delegates and several high profile industry and government speakers went off smoothly, and the credit for the success of this complex project goes to the chapter volunteers who invested their personal time to give delegates a wonderful experience. Id like to thank all the volunteers and the chapter presidents without whose support this conference would not have been possible.
