The new special interest group, chaired by NSw Chapter Councillor Chris Mansfield, aims to promote professional awareness of the value of PMos as a means to achieve organisational project objectives. “ There will also be heavy emphasis on promoting collaboration and integration between project, program and portfolio ma nagement disciplines,” Mansfield says. “The group will provide a common ground for exchange of knowledge and ideas, and canvass solutions to overcome PMo challenges. I encourage anyone who works in a PMo to join the group and start a dialogue that contributes to the group and benefits AIPM members as a whole.” AIPM PMo SIgs are already established in Victoria, ACt, South Australia and Northern territory. w: www.linkedin.com/groups?gid= 4504195 NSW Chapter uses LinkedIn for PMO SIG NEWS • aiPm coNgratulates survey wiNNer timothy Sawyer from brisbane, Queensland, was one of more than 520 respondents in a recent AIPM reader su rvey. he won $250 worth of wine for participating. electioN time the election process for Chapter Presidents and Councillors is currently under way at A IPM.
