Danielle Dodge


Danielle is a dedicated wife, mother, family member, friend, and veteran who also lends significant support to our chapter. In 2020, she supported the Social Media, Event Operations, and Technology Committees. Danielle worked with our teams to improve membership outreach, sponsorship, data analysis, virtual events, video editing, member support, speaker acquisition, website support, google form creation, event planning, event registration, and training. Danielle brought her strategic thinking, can-do attitude, and willingness to support to each committee. She could be counted on to bring new ideas, actively engage in problem solving, brainstorm to achieve objectives, and share tools and ideas with each member of the team. There was never a task too small for Danielle to complete and quite often she would begin to work on a solution without ever being asked to lend support. The Chapter is fortunate to benefit from Danielle's camaraderie, expertise, and support.

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to PMI Central Virginia Chapter.
