Volunteer Spotlight

Kevin Yount has been one of our most innovative volunteers for the past few years! 

Kevin has been instrumental in the continued success of the Chapter’s Mentoring Program and is currently the Chapter’s Microsoft Teams System Administrator. Kevin recommended the Microsoft Teams solution that has led to the reduction of communication gaps and an increase in operational efficiency.  Kevin created a training module and provided a tutorial video on how to navigate the Microsoft Teams platform. The Metrolina Chapter is proud to announce Kevin Yount as March’s Volunteer of the Month.

Programs

The Charlotte Community meeting had a special presentation "Project Managers as Every Day C.O.A.C.H.E..S" presented by Dr. Kimberly P. Johnson came with a lot of surprises. Dr. Kim kept us engaged every throughout the evening. Giving us insight on effective coaching and true leadership qualities, we also participated in various interactive activities with our fellow PMI members.

With the assistance of Dr. Kim, for this months table topic, we collaborated on characteristics that epitomize team
M.O.R.A.L.E. (motivation, opportunity, recognition, appreciation, leadership, empowerment)! If you were unable to make it, lets see what identifiers you were able to think of. Give it a try.  --  Thanks Dr. Kim!!

Volunteer Opportunities

Participate in PMI Metrolina's one-day volunteer event with #WalkCLT in Charlotte on Friday, May 29, from 5-8pm.

#WalkCLT is a community initiative to get your neighborhood active and walking to local destinations. In 2015, Sustain Charlotte teamed up with OrthoCarolina to bring a first-of-its-kind walking initiative to promote walking as a form of transportation.

The goal of this event is to raise awareness of the role that walking can play as a mode of transportation and the many social, environmental, and economic benefits walking generates for ourselves and our community.

If you are interested in volunteering for this event, contact [email protected]
