From the President....
February is the month with my favorite holiday – Groundhogs Day!! In the midst of winter, Punxsutawney Phil emerges. This year, he saw his shadow, which means six more weeks of winter. It’s a 131 tradition and a bit of fun that many people look forward to each year. February is also the month that we celebrate Valentine’s Day – a time to let people know that they are special to you. You may wonder why I prefer Groundhogs Day... It is because I prefer to always let people know they are special to me. This is why I am always telling everyone who volunteers how important they are and how much their efforts are truly appreciated. It is PMICVC’s tradition to take a moment at the January Richmond Dinner meeting to formally recognize each volunteer, and this is what we did last month. It takes the members of the volunteer committee many, many hours to prepare for this annual celebration; hours during the busy holiday season in November and December. At this year’s celebration, we did not recognize all volunteers – some were missed, some were incorrectly recognized. I sincerely apologize for these errors. If you were not recognized, please let me or Bob Ramos know. I and the entire Board truly want you to know that we truly appreciate your efforts; we cannot serve the Project Management community in Central Virginia without your help.
