The results of the last AIPM member survey are in. They are being prepared into reports that will be presented to members at events in the Sydney CBD, Parramatta, and the Illawarra and Hunter regions. Watch your email for announcements. One important finding: more than 18 per cent of respondents were female in this year’s survey, compared to around 15 per cent in previous years. I also urge members to support the Hunter and Illawarra regional chapters. Email Jim Zehnder email@example.com or Gary Kennedy garykennedy2009@gmail. com with ideas or requests for events, sponsorship and speakers. The AIPM Professional Development Council (PDC), which is responsible for the development, maintenance and expansion of AIPM standards, has recently reviewed the Certified Practising Project Director (CPPD) standards. They take into account comments from members and assessors. Visit the AIPM website to decide whether you’re ready for CPPD certification. Have you registered for the IPMA Congress/PMAA Awards event in October? The volume of PMAA entries has been overwhelming, and the range and depth of submissions is exciting. A good project manager provides leadership, a professional approach and experience to any form of business, according to the Arras People Survey 2009. ‘Good’ project managers offer employers risk reduction, project assurance and the prospect of benefits realised. AIPM certification exists to recognise ‘good’ project managers, because AIPM knows the value of this recognition to you, investors and employers. Contact AIPM to ensure your RegPM is current and your CPD points log is up to date. Program versus project management – semantics, or an important distinction? We put this question to a panel at our well-attended March forum. One conclusion was that program management is not as well understood. This, and organisational project management maturity, are key issues for industry and government. They are also a priority for the AIPM. In May, the ACT Chapter sponsored the 2011 Canberra Institute of Technology award for ‘the most outstanding student currently completing the Diploma of Project Management’. Congratulations Matthew Denton.
