pmo forumPMO Leadership Forum

The PMI-NEFL Board of Directors is launching a new networking and educational program for you.  The goal is to create a forum where you can informally consult with your peers about the challenges of managing at the program or portfolio level.   We are currently collecting program design requirements and need your input.  So, we created a brief survey to capture member preferences for times, locations, topics, etc. 

If you are interested in helping the PMO Forum come to fruition, please click here and let us know how to best serve you.
