Project Manager : Project Manager June July 2013
8 Project Manager •AIPM NEWS CHAPTERS In the ACT, AIPM has a membership of 1411 project management professionals, including 240 CPPMs and 320 CPPDs. Recently, AIPM Councillor Guy Wilmington examined 98 requests for tender for project management ser vices in Canberra. He found a low level of understanding of the profession and associated levels of certi cation. Guy presented his results to the March forum, and copies of the report are available from ACT Coordinator Ginette Miller (see page 42 for contact details). Over the past months, your council has sought sponsorship to fund the monthly forums. e economic dow nturn has a ected the ability of organisations to sponsor events such as our for ums. is has caused the council to explore di erent business models, and we plan to discuss the revised business model at our June Forum. Please join the Council and me to discuss the options and our recommended approach. ❰ACT❱ NOTICEBOARD » 25 JUNE GENERAL FORUM EXCELLENCE AWARD MODEL PRESENTATION » 16 JULY PMO/P3M SIG » 6 SEPT PMAA AWARDS David Bryant ACT Chapter President In addition to all the member events and Special Interest Group activities being held, the NSW Chapter Council has been busy organising this year's Project Management Achievement Awards (PMA A) and Project Leadership Forum. We have an outstanding line- up of speakers for the For um, and PMA A is a prestigious event that recognises, honours and promotes outstanding achievements in program and project management. I encourage members to attend both events. As part of our commitment to support regional NSW, two volunteer councillors have been appointed to the NSW Chapter Council. Please join me in welcoming Dean Overend from the Hunter region and Rebecca Atkinson from Illawar ra/ Shoalhaven to the NSW Chapter Council -- both regions have established Committees and a Charter to support activities in their respective territories. AIPM has also launched Advanced Professional Practice Workshops. ese are being piloted in the eastern states and will be held in Sydney during July and August. ❰NSW❱ NOTICEBOARD » 28 JUNE WIPM EVENT: MAKE TIME WORK Chris Mansfield NSW Chapter President e Queensland Chapter continues to move for ward with regional CPD events in Toowoomba, Mackay, Cairns and Tow nsville. For the rst time these regional events will be conducted by some of our Special Interest Groups, particularly the Young and Emerging Project Professionals. Your State Committee is committed to conducting an event in each region every four months. We are still looking for a regional coordinator for the Gold Coast, so please contact QLD Coordinator Lorelei Broadbent (see page 42) if you are interested in this role. Our CPD events in Brisbane continue to provide an excellent opportunity for members to listen to a broad range of presenters. In July we will hear from Cos Luccitti, CEO of Comm One, presenting 'A Blind Man Saved My Project'. Finally, now that PMA A submissions have closed, we look for ward to the cocktail function and presentations to be held at the Brisbane City Hall on 6 September, and the success of Queensland submissions at the National Conference in Perth on 13-16 October. ❰QLD❱ Mark Patch QLD Chapter President I recently had the privilege of making a presentation on the AIPM to more than 30 Certi cate IV and Diploma of Project Management students at Charles Dar win University. It is heartening to note that our profession is being bolstered by increased interest and enrolment of mature-aged students who have mastered other trades and disciplines. I also attended a local business event where the Managing Director stated their commitment to sta retention and development had improved their ability to better support clients. is commitment assisted the business to build year-on-year improvements to its bottom line and was re ected through business growth and increased client satisfaction. e company supports clients in complex projects across a range of industries. It ser ves to remind us bene ts realisation can be as simple as building workforce capacity and capability. AIPM supports individual and corporate members to achieve this via Reg PM, PMO certi cation and, now, through Advanced Professional Practice Workshops. ❰NT❱ Brett Walker NT Chapter President NOTICEBOARD » SEE AIPM WEBSITE FOR UPCOMING NT CHAPTER EVENTS: WWW.AIPM.COM.AU NOTICEBOARD » SEE AIPM WEBSITE FOR UPCOMING QLD CHAPTER EVENTS: WWW.AIPM.COM.AU
