Recap - PDU & a Pint

angel city promoMembership hosted a unique networking event with a presentation from Angel City Brewery on project management logistics which helped credentialed attendees earn a PDU on August 20, 2018. Chapter leaders, members and guests came to the Brewery located in the historic John A. Roebling Building in LA’s Downtown Arts District. There were 101 registered and 7 walk-ins.

Thanks to our generous sponsor, ITH Staffing, the membership team was able to extend the early-bird registration offer longer than initially planned. Attendance included members from PMI-LA, PMI-OC, PMI-IE and PMI-4C as well as representatives from sponsor ITH Staffing. The wide range in attendance was thanks to the multi-channel marketing approach taken by the Membership team.


“This place really let us show off a unique L.A. space” exclaimed Joan McNamara, PMP, VP Membership who developed and led this exciting inaugural event. The Angel City Brewery offers a working brewery, public house, and events space. The marketing and events manager of the brewery, Keith McEly, presented a great talk on “Project Management Logistics, Big Event Planning”. Keith is a CERTIFIED CICERONE® and he explained how Angel City Brewery manages big events with project management.

Before the night was over, everyone in attendance enjoyed a free pint of beer on tap or soft drink and the opportunity to tour the brewery. The appetizer station was a hit with rave reviews about the empanadas from Chilizano, among the wide and colorful variety of tasty offerings. For those able to take the popular brewery tour, Angel City offered an additional discount from the shop (ACB brews) which were a big hit.
