DC PMDoS2017 News
The 2017 DC PMDoS event team is off to a quick start thanks to the PM4C Day of Service Playbook! The DC area Event Team met with our one of our founding sponsors and partner, University of Maryland, this week. UMD, our facilities sponsor, helped us walk through our meeting space and make improvements over last year’s event based on the lessons learned and the exit surveys. We’ve learned that cookies and coffee will make the final surge of the afternoon be more effective, so we’ve doubled down on our order! The team is also finalizing our resource and volunteer needs. We are in need of volunteers to help lead marketing, sponsorship development, and technology needs for the DC PMDoS2017 event. If you are interested in any of these roles, be sure to note that on your volunteer form! Sign up now!

The New Project Management
for Change Coaching Program is Kicking off
What is the PM4Change Coaching program?This is a volunteer run pilot coaching program to support the PMDoS nonprofits by answering project management questions and providing support and resources to the nonprofits as they work on their projects.
Why are we doing this?
So, the nonprofit got their project scoped and a work plan created, but now what? We had two great PMDoS events in the DC area, but we want to have a greater impact than even our awesome single day event can create! Let’s help the nonprofits keep building their project management know how.
If you signed up as a coach or a nonprofit to be a part of this pilot program, you should have received an email last week to talk about next steps.
The Change HAS Come!
Starting NOW, you will notice that this newsletter now comes from our Project Management for Change email address (@PM4Change.org) as we have made the final shift to focus on even more high-impact services to support raising the profile of the project management profession while bringing the power of Project Management to the nonprofit community.
