With much appreciation I am sending PMI a Happy 50th Anniversary. As a member, contributor, and active participant, I continue to have the opportunity to learn, share, and grow within the greater PMI community. Along with the development of project, program, and portfolio skills and practices, I have gained friends, mentors / mentees, and colleagues within this amazing global network. Through my experiences and connections, I have had the opportunity to speak at international conferences, receive an award for my writing, achieve a doctorate degree, earn promotions, connect with some of the brightest minds within PM community and receive insight from some of the founders of PMI. Thank you PMI for helping to shape my career, offer me opportunities, and give me a chance to achieve a variety of personal and professional goals.
