|Presentation: Self-Marketing Strategies for Project Managers|
We welcome our members and community to our 2021 Annual Open House on February 18th. For the past few years, the Open House has been a great success. We have gotten great responses and feedback from our members, the project management community, and our partners.
This year, with the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic, we will be hosting the open house virtually. However, same as previous years, we received great support from our partners and sponsors. In addition to our chapter program introductions, many chapter partners will also be joining us with a virtual booth (breakout sessions). It is a great platform for students, young professionals, academia, and experienced professionals to network and build new connections and bridges to advance their careers. Come to chat with your chapter board members and volunteers, and representatives from our partners and sponsors!
We will also have a great presentation on self-marketing by Sehrish Pervez and Ehtisham Anwer.
Please find the meeting links of each participating organization and other details on the below web page.
