Introducing "PM Coffee Talk" YouTube in 2020!




In 2019, we started Fort Worth PMI (FWPMI) YouTube Channels and recorded videos to provide presidential update, inform about key events.


In 2020, we are so excited to introduce – “PM Coffee Talk”, a video series that will explore current PMI trends and discuss innovative PMI strategies.  Our goal with these videos is to engage current members and motivate potential members to join the FWPMI community.

VOLUNTEER NOW TO IMPACT THE LIVES OF FUTURE ENGINEERS


The Future City Competition – sponsored by DiscoverE (National Engineers Week) – inspires young students about engineering by challenging them to solve the real-world problems associated with building a livable city of the future. Through a series of fun, hands-on applications, student teams will apply the principles of every branch of engineering to address their future cities’ issues. This year’s theme is “Clean Water: Tap into Tomorrow.” More than 75 schools are working hard on their city concepts and their solutions for resilient water systems.

So, please take a minute now and sign up … then help us spread the word about these volunteer opportunities.

Registered Company Coordinators




The Registered Company Coordinator Program (RCC) is a channel into local companies and organizations.  It provides RCC opportunities to be an active part of the chapter and represent PMI to their colleagues within their company, while also promoting project management.  RCCs become the liaison between the chapter and their employer.  The RCC is in a unique position to provide a wealth of information about PMI, the FWPMI Chapter, PMI certifications, and opportunities for project management development to their peers.  Some RCCs hold company specific events, brown bag lunches or other opportunities to learn more about project mgmt.



Two of the chapter’s RCCs (BNSF Railway and Alcon) participated in this year's Career day in August. Thanks to Dohrman Wintermute (BNSF Railway, pictured on left) and Hyon-Chin Keoughan (Alcon), the respective RCCs who played a key role in getting their companies represented in this annual event.  They shared information about their companies to the Career Day participants and helped with efforts to draw and find talent for their companies. 




Brett Hadley  (on the extreme right in the picture to the right), the chapter’s Oncor RCC, recently represented PMI and the chapter at his company’s New Engineer Development Program World Café event. He had a phenomenal team of PMPs (Rhonda Upton & Rafic El Fakir) that helped provide information to their co-workers about project management, PMI certifications, the benefits of joining PMI, as well as opportunities for training and professional development within the Fort Worth chapter. 

The RCC team typically meets every few months before a chapter dinner meeting at the Texas Star.  The FWPMI chapter continues to welcome other local companies to be represented on the RCC program. If you or anyone whom you know are interested in becoming part of this program and team in 2020, please send a note of your interest along with the name of the local companyto rccprogram@fwpmi.org.  For more information, go to the RCC chapter webpage.
