Message From Chapter President, Laila Faridoon

LailaOnly very little time has passed since our Annual Gathering in January 2017 and I am proud to announce that we have another reason to celebrate! In little more than one year, PMI UAE Khaleeji Chapter has grown to become now the 5th largest Chapter in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region and the 34th largest chapter globally. We consider this jump in ranking one of many ‘jumps’ we will make as Chapter this year in a large number of areas, such as in volunteer engagement, the number and type of inspiring activities we are planning, exciting projects with government, Registered Education Providers, Academia and many more.

All of this success is thanks to all of you, all our new and faithful members, the volunteers who go to great lengths in order to take time out of their schedule to support us, our sponsors who want to see the project management community grow and nurture us with financial contributions and other donations.

As your chapter president, I can assure you that we will not stop pushing ourselves to achieve more growth and offer even more value for new members and keep existing members happy and engaged, which I believe is a major contributor to our success.

Our strategy to plan and offer activities that our Chapter members find valuable and useful in their day-to-day life has proved valuable in increasing our membership count.  We are aiming for the right mix of high profile speakers, interesting topics that are relevant to the project management community and the UAE as a whole as well as opportunities to network and learn. We will also experiment this year with a couple new event formats that allow for more interaction and for learning on a more focused and even ‘deeper’ level. I am very proud to be able to offer you the exclusive opportunity to get first hand exposure to our Expo2020 team for our upcoming event for you to learn from the source how the UAE gets ready for such a mega event.

The continuous success we are enjoying here at the UAE Chapter could not be possible without the people who are driving the Chapter. The team spirit that has been embedded by the leadership into the directors and volunteers has made this journey very joyful and rewarding to us all.

Thank you all again... You made it happen!
