She is a subject matter expert in project management systems, with a specialisation in scheduling and earned value management (eVM). Members face the same challenges when it comes to AIPM events – the location may be inconvenient or they simply don’t have time to attend. This is particularly irksome for those of us with RegPM certification because we need between 40 and 80 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points per year to maintain our registration. So AIPM is bringing the events to you. Podcasts are being trialled in WA, however we still have to work out how to assign CPD points to them; and volunteers within state chapters are organising regional events. In NSW we are now holding events in The Illawarra (Wollongong), The Hunter (Newcastle), Western Sydney (Parramatta) and central Sydney. It requires a lot of effort to organise regional events as our volunteer chapter councillors also hold full-time jobs, so please be patient as we get things rolling. Calling potential volunteers: we need AIPM members in the Parramatta area to work with the NSW Chapter to help organise and promote more events in Western Sydney. With the holiday period behind us, chapter activities are back in full swing. The Project Management Achievement Awards (PMAA) are expected to be big with the IPMA World Congress in Brisbane and Asia Pacific Federation of Project Management (APFPM). We hosted a PMAA launch that was very well attended, and expressions of interest are starting to come in. PMAA coaches from the ACT Chapter are available to provide guidance and advice on preparing submissions. The ACT’s three special interest groups also commence their activities in the coming month. Planning has also commenced for the new Young People in Project Management (YPP) SIG. We’ve appointed our Chapter YPP SIG leaders and they are already turning their minds to the way ahead. Last month, we were also surprised – and honoured – when the National Library requested copies of the ACT Chapter newsletter as part of their goal to build a comprehensive collection of library material relating to Australia and the Australian people. So congratulations go to Roger Birch, our newsletter editor. ❰ New South Wales ❱ ❰ Australian Capital Territory ❱
