South Asia Chapter Presidents’ Meet
PMI South Asia

Each year, the South Asia Chapter Presidents’ Meet brings together the chapter leaders from across the region for discussions on the strategic direction the region will take that year. This year, the meeting was merged with the Project Management Regional Conference held on 4 June in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

The one-day meeting saw a packed agenda with a range of topics. Dr. Srini Srinivasan, managing director of PMI South Asia, spoke about the importance of chapter collaboration and regional opportunities.

The chapter presidents provided updates on core services and new services being offered to members. They also highlighted the key challenges that chapters were facing.

The leaders reviewed the progress being made in the chapter collaboration program, which was launched in 2022. The program comprised two key tracks monitored by two chapter presidents. The regional growth track is led by Annesha Ahmed, president of the PMI Bangladesh Chapter, and the track on chapter value proposition is led by Parvez Alam, president of the PMI Chennai Chapter.

PMI South Asia staff also took part in the discussions, providing key business updates and highlighting emerging opportunities, such as the potential collaboration with the Government of India’s Management and Entrepreneurship & Professional Skills Council (MEPSC) initiative. This collaboration aims to serve underprivileged youth in the country by providing essential training on project management.

Overall, it was a productive meeting with a host of new insights being shared and plans discussed to foster collaborative growth in the region.
