Project Management Day of Service™ (PMDoS™) 2018
March 2018 eNewsletter
DC 2018 PMDoS is a wrap, but Project Management isn’t!
Over a month ago, during Martin Luther King Jr. Day on January 15, 2018, you arrived at the Stamp Student Union before 9:30 am, grabbed a bagel, checked out our sponsors, and maybe mingled with others. Filled with energy and excitement, you were matched together to form a group of project managers and a nonprofit. Over the course of the day, you developed a scope, a work breakdown structure, a strategic plan, and planned out your next steps.
Fast forward. We now ask, if you were a project manager, how has the event impacted you? If you were a nonprofit, have you started implementing the plan you and your team developed during PMDoS?
Let us know! We’d love to hear your feedback and share your experience.
- Preparation event was held on Saturday, January 13th. For the very first time, PM4C offered a service learning experience for 10 student volunteers from middle- and high-school students in the form of a “mini-lesson on project management, using the task at hand (packing gift bags) to demonstrate how project management can make work more efficient.” Read more here.
- Alongside project management professionals at the event, a project management student from University of Maryland (UMD) participated. By transforming her coursework to real world application, the student and her team developed a strategic outreach plan for the nonprofit her team was helping. Read more here.
- Community engagement and participation:
