Such an honor to be part of the global PMI network over the past 25 of the 32 years of my career. Through their growth and evolution, I've grown and evolved in my career. The best practices and framework provided through the continued contributions of practitioners world-wide helped provide structure when there was none (in the early days) and ultimate success to the projects I've managed and teams I've led. The PMP certification has brought credibility that has advanced my career and provided unthinkable opportunities. My global network of peers has brought leverage through knowledge, expertise and resources. It has been exciting to be part of a chapter who started with about 30 people and grew to thousands and becoming one of the biggest ones worldwide. I'm grateful to now serve as an advisor to those designing and advancing their careers and companies accelerating their growth through project management. Congratulations PMI... and, thank you!
