About the Presentation

A discussion of TSA’s RBS initiative from concept to Proof of Concepts.

TSA is moving away from a one size fits all approach and shifting to more risk-based, intelligence driven operations. This is a fundamental transformation of thinking and security procedures.

The discussion will focus on the process TSA took from concept development to a Pre-Check proof of concept that changes the screening process for those passengers who can be assessed as low risk and encompassing many other changes along the way.

About the Monthly Dinner Meetings

The PMIWDC Monthly Dinner Meetings are held at the Sheraton Tysons (8661 Leesburg Pike, Tysons, VA 22182), typically on the second Tuesday of each month (subject to change due to holidays and venue/speaker availability). Members and non-members are welcome to join us for the best speakers and networking the Washington, DC area has to offer.

The presentations are educational and informative to those professionals operating in the field of project management and functioning in leadership roles in industry and government. It is also of great value to those looking to step into the field of Project Management and begin their certification process. Each event will present specific learning points focusing on building a talent triangle of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management skills, unique to the presenter's area of expertise and the subject matter discussed while directly relating to improving the practice of managing projects and leading others. At each Monthly Chapter Event certified PMPs can earn 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU).
