It is followed by the SA Project Management Achievement Awards (PMAA) Gala Dinner. With the next financial year almost upon us, it is timely that the TAS Chapter Council has finalised its Business Plan for 2011-12. As outlined in the last edition of Project Manager, the Council will be focusing on increasing membership (including student numbers), increasing the take- up of RegPM and meeting the needs of our members in the north and north-west of the state. Over the past few months we have held a number of lunchtime seminars that have provided a range of topics for our members and non-members in attendance. The May event was a presentation by Renzo D’Orazio on Fast Tracked PMO. Renzo outlined his direct experience in the set-up of a Program Management Office (PMO) – people, processes and systems – to address the challenges facing the project teams in rejuvenating the TasR ail network. The level of interest in the local Project Management Achievement Awards (PMAA) is gaining momentum. The state final will be held on 26 August in Glenorchy. This is a truly outstanding way for organisations to demonstrate their commitment to excellence in project management and recognise the achievements of their project teams. The resources boom and strong investment in infrastructure projects are driving a suite of exciting projects across the state. But there appears to be a looming problem because of the lack of experienced project managers for future projects. The SA Chapter is working with its membership to understand the degree and depth of the problem through the Project Management Office and the Emerging Project Professionals special interest groups (SIGs). The Women in Project Management and other SIGs are holding regular seminars and networking forums. Check the calendar on the AIPM website for a full list of SIG events. It is excellent to see a stronger gender balance in the influx of younger project managers and the greater recognition that behavioural skills are receiving in the implementation of projects. In SA, we are focusing on these skills, which are becoming more crucial to the project management role, at our seminars and networking events. We are also looking at ways in which we can connect our younger members with those who have a greater depth of experience. ❰ Tasmania ❱ ❰ South Australia ❱
