Project Managers' Community of Practice

For the seventh year in a row the Project Manager's Community of Practice is continuing! Community of Practice (PM-CoP) members meet once per month over lunch (BYOL) to learn from each other about various aspects of project management. They select the topics, a member speaker presents a 5-30 minute informal presentation and members engage in a dynamic conversation giving and taking in their learning on the topic. Members have repeatedly communicated how much they appreciate this learning and networking format.

You can benefit from:

  • Experienced project managers (PMs) advance the profession by sharing their background and experience with participating PMs while adding new perspectives and tools to your toolkit.
  • Less experienced PMs benefit by recognizing the value of their particular experience and gleaning strategies and tips from other PMs.
  • Engaging with other PMs in a learning dialogue on various aspects of project management and leadership rather than passively listening to someone deliver a talk on it.
  • Refining your presentation and facilitation skills, as desired.
  • The opportunity to be a committed member of a community of project managers who teach and learn through meaningful dialogue.
