Volunteer of the Month

For the past 5-6 years Brian has dedicated almost every weekend to getting our weekly Newsletter out.  Over the years this very key volunteer has shared his knowledge of Mailchimp, best practices on headlines, adding attractive graphics, and helped us transition thru 2 different processes as we changed from Proteon, to MG2Media, and now to Dark Rhino.  Brian is now shifting gears to train other volunteers on this very critical function.  His knowledge of Mailchimp statistics has helped the Marketing team focus on our segmented marketing campaigns despite COVID lockdowns shifting the chapter to 100% virtual, where we found ourselves combining all our segments.

Great Job and Congratulations, Brian!


About the Lee Mandley Volunteer of the Month Award

Founding Director of the PMI-LA Alhambra Community Meeting located at DeVry, Lee was a Construction PM and a long-time member of the chapter.  He was the voice and liaison for the San Gabriel Valley members east of Pasadena.  Lee was the first director to institute round table discussions on interesting Project Management Topics when a speaker had to cancel at the last moment.   Since 2012, we have presented the ‘Volunteer of the Month’ award to a key volunteer who exhibits the outstanding trait of working “outside-the-box” to ensure that chapter operations are running smoothly in their area.  This award was renamed later that year to honor Lee Mandley.
