As we start 2018, we are excited to hold our monthly chapter events at a new location, on a new day, and even with a new format! Our new location is the Doubletree Hotel Tysons Corner in McLean, VA. Moving to this new location targets where the majority of our membership live and work. This new space is larger and offers a wider variety of Networking event possibilities, as our networking events can now be moved outside when it is warmer. If you attended the January event, you would have met our own Washington Redskin Trent Murphy, as he mingled, autographed items, and took selfies with attendees. Attend our February event and you will meet Gerald O. Sablo, Jr., BS, MS, the 2017 winner of the prestigious “James R. Snyder International Student Paper of the Year Award” recently presented in Chicago, IL at the 2017 PMI Professional Awards Gala.
Meet Jason Legum - the new 2017 CFO. Jason began by volunteering 6 years ago as Records Management AVP before becoming VP of Records Management and before combining those operations with business services to create and head the Operations Services operational area. During that time, Jason focused on managing costs, finding opportunities to improve services common to all operational areas, and improve the chapter's knowledge management. His latest never-ending mission is to empower the strategy development team so the chapter can have a mission, vision, and strategy connecting our stakeholders and aligning our operations.
As 2017 comes to a close we have one more Operational Area to recognize, Operations Services, as an critical part of the organization that helps to keep things operating smoothly. You might think of Operations Services as a PMO for the PMIWDC.
