Dear Valued Member:
At PMI-LA, we strive to provide you with a host of benefits - opportunities to network with like minded Project Management practitioners, professional development and the chance to give back as a volunteer.
Congratulations to Nareg Tovmassian who is our Volunteer of the Month for February!
Nareg Tovmassian has been an active member of the PMI-LA Chapter since his very first (inaugural) San Fernando Valley (SFV) satellite meeting in 2013. Nareg has owned the responsibility of multiple key roles and functions, including Director of Speakers, Registration, Venue coordination, Surveys and Director of Social Media. His most impressive role is his current one, Director of San Fernando Valley (SFV) programs. With his tenacity, focus and hard work, Nareg was instrumental in reviving this vital hub satellite location from the brink of cancelation, and place it on its path to growth ever since. With his involvement and leadership, SFV Satellite has experienced record breaking attendance, and increased positive feedback from attendees. Keep up the Great Work, Nareg!
Dynamic temporary multi-organizations (TMOs) projects involve units or participants from independent firms and thus require collective knowledge and coordinated responses. From the perspective of Supply Chain Management, this talk discusses the complexity, uncertainty, and risk management approaches in TMOs projects.
Coming soon - an easy way to record and track the volunteer hours you contribute to PMI-LA. The chapter's new Volunteer Management system will also let you search and apply for your next volunteer opportunity with the chapter.
You will be able to decide how much you can volunteer and what opportunities you want to work on. You'll also be able to see a history of all projects and roles you have worked on during your time as a chapter volunteer.
All this and more are on the way. Stay tuned for more details.
Prior to being able to lead in relationships, lead in teams and lead in organizations, you as a leader must take a good look in the mirror.
- Who are you?
- What is important to you?
- How do you choose to “show up” as a leader?
- What type of mindset do you have and how does that influence how you lead?

Topic: Networking for Project Managers: Introverts, Extroverts and In-Between-Verts
Do you attend PMI or company events and walk away feeling like you could have been more successful in meeting more people? Do you wait for others to approach you? Do you feel anxious when you try to start a conversation? In today’s world networking isn't just for those NOT working. It’s a powerful personal and professional tool we can all use to leverage relationships.

Topic: Working Your Network for Project Managers and Job Seekers
Are you taking full advantage of your network? Do you spend time nurturing your professional relationships? Networking is a necessary skill for professionals at all levels. Your colleagues and connections can provide industry insight, tactical solutions and opportunities to advance your career. Despite the many benefits of networking, many are still reluctant to put themselves out there and consider networking a chore or fruitless endeavor.
