www.aipm.com.au Project Manager 11 AIPM NEWS CHAPTERS • e SA Chapter Councillors have been busy delivering, to date, six member Chapter events and two WIPM, two EPP, four PMO and two Project Management in Remote and Indigenous Communities SIG For ums. We also had a high calibre of projects presented at the state PMA A. e category winners and overall state winner will now proceed to the national awards for judging and the results will be announced in October at the 2013 AIPM National Conference in Perth. Sponsorship is also a great way to get involved by promoting your organisations and supporting AIPM. As part of the University of South Australia Project Management Masters Student Recognition Award, the SA Chapter presented Stan Orlowski with an outstanding student award. I would like to thank our members for attending our One-Day Project Management Showcase held in July, and our event sponsors and our Councillors for their invaluable contributions. Sami Abou-Hamdan SA Chapter President Here in WA the judges are busy considering PMA A submissions. A substantial increase in the number of submissions received over the past few years has been very encouraging; well done to Chapter Councillor Margaret Sharpe and her team for their e orts in getting the numbers up. e awards will be presented at a cocktail function on 8 August that promises to be the social event of the year, complete with amenco dancer and Spanish guitarists! ere is a Chapter focus on hosting the National Conference in Perth in October. is will be an exciting opportunity for us Sandgropers to engage with project management professionals from around the country. From a local viewpoint, we are embarking on a program to retain and recr uit members from the regional areas of WA, and have appointed two Councillors to Regional Portfolios. To help build membership in these areas contact Chapter Coordinator Martine Peasley (see page 42). NOTICEBOARD »25SEPTCPDEVENT--PM VALUE AND MATURITY »13OCTCPDEVENT-- RESEARCH FORUM Chris Carman WA Chapter President Michael King TAS Chapter President We have focused a lot lately on the big and emerging issues surrounding project and program management, but we should not forget the importance of the basics. Good planning and control are fundamental to a successful project. As well as the popular PMO SIG meetings, we are currently looking to re-energise our Project Controls group and provide opportunities for e xploring best practice in these areas. e most notable upcoming events are the annual Half- day Victorian For um and Victorian Project Management Achievement Awards Gala Dinner. ere is a great line- up of presenters for the Forum on the theme of innovation in project, program and portfolio management, and the evening event will be fun- lled while recognising project management a nd individual excellence. Congratulations in anticipation to award winners, and sincere thanks to our sponsors. anks also to the councillors, judges and mentors, who are essential to the event's organisation and success. e June/July issue of Project Manager carried articles on both membership renewal and the value of RegPM certi cation. Here in the Tasmanian Chapter we have retained a strong member base by continuing to run events where the value of membership and its bene ts are on display. e Retirement Bene ts Fund (RBF) has been an important contributor to the local Chapter through its PMA A submissions, and we are pleased to welcome them as a corporate member of AIPM. Many clients have identi ed the value of having competent project manager who can successfully manage their projects to completion. Service organisations continue to embrace the RegPM certi cation process to ensure they have a competitive edge. In Tasmania we continue to build the number of RegPMs and o er support to those who wish to begin this important process. Over the past month we have had a boost in new RegPMs, accentuating the value of this certi cation.
