On October 26th 2013, at the International PMI Leadership Institute Conference in New Orleans, the Rio Grande chapter received global recognition: the PMI Chapter Award for Member Services. We went up against stiff competition from PMI chapters in the Czech Republic, Argentina, India, Poland, Saint Louis and Fort Worth, to name a few. PMIRGC received the award for substantial improvement in 2012-13 operating year. During this year we implemented a scholarship program and awarded our first scholarship; added a successful breakfast meeting program; and established an energized, vibrant volunteer program.
The PMI conference spanned three days and was attended by over 1000 PMI members. Sally Trigg, VP Programs, accepted the award on behalf of PMIRGC. As Trigg stated, “Standing on stage with outstanding chapters from around the globe was amazing. I am so proud of our Chapter.”
