Elections are in the air! I am not talking about Federal, Provincial or Municipal elections, but rather about election to the Chapter’s Board of Directors. There are six Director positions that will be standing for election.
The candidates, who wish to run for the SOC BOD and contribute to the Chapter, can find all required information about the election process, required qualifications, mandatory dates, etc. on the Chapter’s web site.
The Volunteers portfolio is getting ready to launch the Annual Volunteers Opinion Survey. We hope to have great participation and learn from our volunteers what other improvements we can bring to our Chapter. We are also busy preparing for our Volunteers Awards – stay tuned for the opening of Nominations in April.
SOC Communities are very active. There is a very relevant and interesting
Healthcare – PMO joint event coming up on Tuesday, April 8th! The 2013
PMI PMO winner, Canada Health Infoway’s Portfolio Management Office, will present ‘Transforming Health Care in Canada through Digital Health: The Role of PMO Best Practices’. We are also piloting a student blog, please visit http://www.pmisocstudents.ca and let us know what you think!
