Get the Most out of our Meetings

Tell us about topics that will help you be a better project manager

What do you want to learn more about? What are your biggest challenges at work? If the specific topic isn't yet clear in your mind, Amy or Bob can be a sounding board. 

Be a presenter

You don't need to know all the answers. Often, just asking the questions that challenge you helps us all develop as professionals. Talk with Amy or Bob about what you are thinking. Check the schedule above for an open month. Your time spent preparing is "Giving back" (Category D) and worth extra PDUs.

Earn PDUs

You can report 1 PDU for attending a roundtable meeting. We can help you select the right category for the meeting (technical, leadership, strategic). The chapter provides a document with instructions for reporting a roundtable PDU. If you lead a meeting, you can earn even more PDUs for your preparation.
