Chapter Website Migration

A pilot is currently underway, and a staggered rollout will occur from February 23rd through April 30th for all Chapter sites.

Our Chapter site is scheduled for conversion during the period of March 23rd thru April 6th.

What’s changing?: A new service provider and new contact management software for the sites.

There should be no down time for the conversion.

Some of your suggestions were:

  • Move our Chapter meeting so that it is not at the same time as the PMI meeting as some members belong to both organizations.
  • Hold a Job Fair.
  • Have roundtable discussions of problems BA’s face and ways to solve them or other topics.  This way there is a topic to discuss but also networking.
  • Provide Benefits of/Alternatives to CBAP.

We will continue to gather your feedback after each meeting. Please pick up a form at the back table.
