Get Involved with PMRG Committees

One key to surviving in today’s changing environment is to get involved in something outside your own organization. PMRG has grown to include many sub-committees and task forces. Member volunteers find the right opportunity, requiring minimal time investment, while building essential skills in leadership, planning, networking and public speaking.

Thoughts from volunteers  

"Serving as a PMRG Volunteer placed me in a position where I had a leadership position amongst a group of the most talented managers in the industry. Amongst other things, this was a tremendous benefit in terms of being able to observe their various leadership styles and tactics in action. It also gave me a chance to experiment with my own skills, styles and tactics more quickly than would have been the case in my own day to day responsibilities. Serving as a PMRG Volunteer provided excellent visibility and networking opportunities. It provided a sense of accomplishment, and was also a lot of fun."
- Jeff Adler

“PMRG is like any organization, the more we put in, the more we get out. I am absolutely in a better place professionally because of my volunteer work for PMRG. I know more people and more things than I would simply by attending meetings.”   
- Tim O'Rourke

"My individual motivation for volunteering with PMRG was a way to be included in the growth and education in a professionally-run organization. The team members with whom I have been involved with (PMRG Staff and volunteers on the Programming Committee, Education Committee, Membership Committee and Executive Committee) are collectively some of the most dedicated volunteers I have yet to work with.  I have always found my involvement in volunteer positions as a wonderful way to increase knowledge through hands-on experience, team development and networking opportunities. This is certainly not an organization to sit back and watch others do the work… you sign up… you’ll be used and have some fun along the way too!" 
- Scott Baker

"I have found that volunteering for PMRG has allowed a wonderful opportunity to spend valuable time working closely with colleagues, clients, and people I can now consider friends. There are so many learning opportunities with PMRG and I am excited to share the information about the organization with others. You develop a real close bond with people when you work together on a project, and that is an invaluable experience."
