Teresa Younger, PMI CVC Director of Programs

Teresa jumped into the role of Director of Programs head first at the beginning of the year and hasn't stopped since. Within a two week timeframe she had not only identified gaps in the chapter's upcoming live-virtual events, but filled the calendar with reputable speakers, coordinated and executed multiple planning meetings to onboard new volunteers and discuss upcoming event planning, and forged the path ahead for professional development opportunities for chapter members.

With Teresa's background in education, she has been able to contribute expertise in a multi-faceted approach that combines structure with a calm understanding of how to approach the development of educational programs. Without Teresa's continuous volunteer support, Central Virginia Chapter wouldn't be where it is today. In three short months Teresa has contributed over a year's worth of work and is an exceptional role model for future volunteers in the education and programs department.

Thank you Teresa!

2021 Volunteer Recognition

First Quarter Exceptional Volunteer

Delores Floyd, MBA, PMP

Delores “Dee” Floyd, MBA, PMP has been the Project Manager for our Volunteer Appreciation Celebration Event for several years.  This quarter we have named Dee as our Co-Volunteer of the Quarter for leading a team to pull off a complex virtual Volunteer Appreciation Celebration in March.
During the 4th quarter of 2020, pandemic notwithstanding, Dee embraced the challenge of putting forth a virtual event for our 2020 Volunteers.  She would not be deterred from allowing us to enjoy a virtual event to appreciate our volunteers, to conduct our traditional Orange Hat ceremony and to shine a light on our Volunteer of the Year.  Dee and her project team envisioned a virtual event in which dinner was still a part of the event, gifts were still part of the event and recognition of our volunteer of the year became the center piece of the event.  Dee and the team pulled off such a unique and wonderful event with dinner and gifts delivered the day of the event.  We had two speakers and a live presentation of our Volunteer of the Year.  Truly creative, coordinated and celebratory.  Well done!
Dee is a Senior Project Manager at the Fed (Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond) and true to her code, she enjoys “developing solutions to complex challenges and believe that no major project can be effectively completed alone.”   Dee holds an MBA from Wright State University and a BA in Business Management from Notre Dame of Maryland University.
On behalf of the PMI Central Virginia Chapter, we thank Dee for contributing her passion and professionalism so that the volunteers that support our chapter are celebrated and appreciated. 
Thank you, Dee!
