CONTACT OLIMPIA WATKINS VIC Chapter Coordinator 03 9369 2160 firstname.lastname@example.org Visit the AIPM website for more information on events NOTICEBOARD 21 JUNE PROJECT CONTROLS (PC) SIG 23 JUNE PROJECT MANAGEMENT OFFICE (PMO) SIG 30 JUNE NETWORKING AND WINE TASTING – CELEBRATE END OF FY 20 JULY PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT GROUP (PMDG) SIG 27 JULY GOVERNMENT ORGANISATIONS DON’T MISS PM Professional Development Group (PMDG) SIG is open to anyone interested in project management. With a mix of students and p roject management team members through to senior project managers, this event facilitates a high level of knowledge sharing within the group. Mid year already? How the year flies by. The inaugural ‘The Art of Getting Things Done’ Conference in April was an outstanding success. The mix of speakers appeared to capture the various industry groups represented by delegates – a number of whom said they would come again next year. This means the conference will be a regular event on the AIPM calendar. The day began with a keynote address by the WA Minister for Mines and Petroleum. A big thank you to the Hon Norman Moore and all our other speakers: Mike Kinney, Dr Neveen Moussa, David Baccarini, Dieter Fink, Dr Keith O’Shea, David Hudson and Mike Brennan. I would also like to acknowledge Swan Exhibitions, whose sponsorship enabled AIPM to keep costs to a minimum at this, our inaugural conference. And the promotion of the event as part of the Mining Australia Exhibition 2011 was very beneficial. Thank you, as well, to the project management professionals who attended. For those who didn’t make it to Perth, the presentations and audio files are available on the AIPM website. Next is the ‘No Limits’ conference in September, which includes the PMAA Awards evening. The Project Portfolio Management working group has met twice and is well into discussing what project portfolio management means and how it is applied within organisations. As the secretary of the Asia Pacific Federation of Project Management (APFPM), I am excited that Mexico, Peru, Singapore, Canada and America have joined the APFPM. This highlights the growth of the APFPM and AIPM’s connections around the world. On a personal note, I am fortunate to be part of Steven Pereira’s newsletter distribution list. He is CIO of GS1, an association dedicated to developing and implementing global standards to improve supply and demand chains. The newsletter includes a column where Steven shares real life project management and related experiences. His most recent article is published in the VIC Chapter newsletter, which is available under Chapter News on the AIPM website. Finally, I would like to thank the councillors for their continued support of our events and welcome Natalie Bakas on board as a councillor. Congratulations to George Stasinis, who has been appointed Chapter Secretary to the VIC Chapter Council. ❰ Western Australia ❱ ❰ Victoria ❱ Project Manager 16 • CHAPTERS
