The PMI Keystone Chapter held a 'pilot' event in Carlisle on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM. It was attended by almost 20 professional project managers. Matt Christen, Senior Project Manager at Footlocker, presented an engaging review of hybrid project management and adopting an agile mindset with an overview of the PMBOK V6 and Agile Practice Guide. The event was highly successful and attendees are anticipating a series kick-off in Spring 2019.

During this winter the PMI Keystone Chapter Programs Team will review applications for Branch Support Team volunteers, conduct interviews and build the team. After the team is assembled, they will hold a planning meeting in January 2019 to prepare for the April 2019 series kick-off meeting. The PMI Keystone Chapter and Ahold USA are discussing a partnership agreement, including use of their meeting facility, which will be completed in advance of the April 2019 series kick-off meeting.

Great job to everyone who was involved with creating this successful "pilot" meeting and generating excitement for an April 2019 series kick-off meeting.
