www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 11 AIPM NEWS CHAPTERS • We had a great start to the year, with more than 60 members at our networking drinks, Young and Emerging Project Professionals SIG luncheon, Project Management Achievement Awards (PMA A) brie ng session and Women in Project Management luncheon. e AIPM SA Chapter is also representing AIPM on the newly launched Construction Professions For um. I would like to encourage members to submit entries for the 2013 PMA A, which is a great opportunity to promote outstanding achievements in the program and project management within your organisation. e overall state and category winners will also be judged for the national awards. I thank our sponsors and partners for 2013 events to date, including UCL, ElectraNet, Nova Systems, Fox Creek Wines, Clear Decisions and Austraining International. We're looking for ward to continuing to work together on an exciting events program. ❰SA❱ NOTICEBOARD » 14 MAY CHAPTER FORUM WITH ANDY STEERE -- PM IN KENYA » 16 MAY PMO WORKSHOP » 20 JUNE CHAPTER FORUM WITH KAREN HUGHES -- SAAB SYSTEMS Sami Abou-Hamden SA Chapter President It is encouraging to see organisations focusing on their ability to maintain and/or upgrade existing capital assets. is change in direction also encourages organisations to re ect on the processes used for overall project delivery and perhaps seek means to improve operating e ciency, communication and timeliness. Reviews of past performance enable advances to be made and achievements recognised. With this in mind, I invite you to submit your project to the upcoming Project Management Achievement Awards (PMA A). A user-friendly template has been developed for ease of submission, and we will conduct a submissions workshop to provide you with guidance. Visit the AIPM website for details. e National Conference is to be held in Perth in October. It's a great opportunity to share knowledge, so think about submitting a paper. Finally, this is my last report as Chapter President, with Chris Carman taking the reins. ❰WA❱ NOTICEBOARD » 15 MAY WATER FOREVER WHATEVER THE WEATHER » 29 MAY WIPM: IS THERE MORE TO LIFE THAN HAPPINESS? » 26 JUNE INTEGRATING INDIGENOUS OUTCOMES INTO CONSTRUCTION Matt Tindall WA Chapter President e rst event for 2013, From Playgroup to Projects: Outbursts of Glee, Tantrums and Other Interesting Behaviours, was an outstanding success. Presenters Bronwyn Cross and Sharyn White are great supporters of the AIPM. e emphasis was on communication, and provided tips and techniques that help build a project manager's skillset. e presentation provided ideas on how the tools can be used to align with organisation direction, and sharing of expected outcomes leading to project and team success. Our Chapter's promotion of the 2013 PMAA program is well under way, and we have developed a strategy for providing support and encouragement to help Tasmanian projects ear n the recognition they deser ve. An event for interested people and organisations promoting PMAA success was held in March. If you missed it and are interested in submitting a project, please contact our TAS Chapter Coordinator Louise Grimmer. ❰TAS❱ Michael King TAS Chapter President NOTICEBOARD » SEE AIPM WEBSITE FOR UPCOMING TAS CHAPTER EVENTS: WWW.AIPM.COM.AU e calls for greater knowledge about the management context of projects and programs have been growing, and we are responding with a range of targeted events. A topic many members and organisations often mention is Procurement Management. It's an increasingly challenging area as project delivery models, vendor engagement and supply chains become more complex. So we reviewed some of the current issues and practices at our Four o'clock For um in April. Following great interest in our March leadership series event on project and program governance, we are dedicating our May event in this series to a for um on PMOs. Keeping with high-level management themes, and the feature of this edition, I can report that a working group is currently organising a for um of leading practitioners on Project Portfolio Management for later in the year. For malising an ongoing PPM practitioner group is a second objective.
