Project Manager : Project Manager Oct Nov 2011
www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 5 first word After my previous letter, I was asked why I got involved and stayed committed to the AIPM for a considerable time serving on State Councils and then the Board of Directors for 12 years. I wanted to give something back into the pro- fession I had chosen and make a difference to the industry. By volunteering in my State Chapter, I began to build close bonds with other Councilors, and it was galvanising to work together on various projects by building towards larger organisational objectives. These relationships made a huge difference. What helped sustain my journey was a desire to serve others, in this case our members. I wanted to make their AIPM experience exceptional, and build a culture where going the extra mile for a member was just part of our job.

I found it motivating being part of shaping strategy and decision-making that resulted in tangible benefits. For example, ou r strateg y to reach out and engage with other project management associations around the world has put AIPM on the global map and demonstrated it’s leadership. The strategy has pushed the development of our standards and driven improvements across our profession. Roberto Mori, President of IPMA, recently declared: “there is worldwide recognition of AIPM being an absolutely outstanding player in the global project management community.” Dr Martin Barnes CBE, President of APM UK also stated, “the AIPM is such a well- reputed organisation in your own country and around the world that it is a great privilege to be associated with it.” I encourage members to get involved in some way with your local Chapters or by serving on Councils or Committees. This can be demanding at times, but it is a great experience and ver y rewarding. I feel privileged to have been able to serve our profession through the AIPM. dr bill young National president
