Have you ever wondered what the Operations Office of PMI-CIC does?  Here’s some acrostic fun to highlight the main responsibilities!

O – Oversee technology operations of the chapter

P – PDU scanning cards    

E – Email account management

R – Registration table & receipts

A – Attendance tracking

T – Technical support for chapter meetings

 I – Interact with technology vendors

O – Oversee event registration

N – Need volunteers – always!

S – Support PMI-CIC website and oversee webmaster activities

One of the highlights for Operations this year was introducing an event app for the 2018 PMI-CIC conference that took place in May.  The event app allowed conference attendees to view the conference schedule, session details, PDU details, speaker bios and sponsors.  We found a cost effective app solution called Eventbase Free.  Attendees downloaded the app to their mobile device and the conference information was at their fingertips.  Although Eventbase Free met most of our needs for the 2018 conference, we look forward to possibly providing a new and improved app for the next conference!  

There are several technologies and processes in place to enable YOU to have a good experience as a member.  Some of the benefits provided to members include:

  • Option to attend chapter meetings in person or virtually
  • PDU cards to scan and automatically records PDU credit
  • Access to presentation materials after chapter meetings
  • A website that provides the most up to date information for chapter information

THANK YOU to the members who have helped in Operations over the past year!  It takes several committed volunteers to provide support for the Operations Office.  If you are interested in joining the team, please reach out!  It’s a great avenue to gain more experience, learn something new, earn PDUs and give back to the organization.
