We cur rently boast a strong Women in Project Management (WIPM) SIG, a thriving Emerging Project Professionals (EPP) SIG, a workshop-style SIG that focused on PMOs and an evolving SIG for management of projects in Indigenous and remote communities. We are pleased to present a handful of Chapter Forums, at which our members can hear from PMs and directors on a range of topics, and a one-day PM showcase on 26 July. We are pleased to announce that Hostworks were awarded the AIPM PMO Accreditation Award in March 2013, exhibiting their commitment to project ma nagement.

Whether it arises from increasing complexity -- the theme of this edition of the magazine -- or it is simply in the nature of projects and their settings, it is a constant challenge. One of the issues raised by a number of corporate members is the increasing pace of change, particularly for organisations in highly competitive industries. So much so that, even with relatively short projects, the deliverables often have to be drastically rede ned midstream to align with fast-changing business requirements. is gives new meaning to the concept of scope management, a fundamental of PM knowledge. Coming to grips with the new order of project complexity is one of the focuses of our upcoming major events. Our July leadership series for um will be on change management, while the annual half-day Victorian For um on 22 August provides a power-packed list of industry gures presenting on the theme of innovation and creativity in better managing projects, programs, portfolios and cha nge itself. Attendance at our events this year has been excellent and this is a great re ection on the e orts of the Council to secure facilitators and topics. Our March WIPM event was presented by Assistant Commissioner for Taxation Tracey Rodgers, who has senior management experience in the private and public sectors. Tracey is well versed in managing complexity, having been involved in whole-of- government project work, and talked about delivering complex Commonwealth projects and implementing policies. We have received many expressions of interest in submitting entries in PMA A. Our PMA A information event in March was well attended, and we have continued to support entrants to make this a big year for Tasmania. All that is left is the judging and the celebrating. e Council has identi ed opportunities for some great events, with plans for more relevant topics and speakers to meet our members' needs for continuous development and the opportunity to participate.
