8 Project Manager •NEWS Help make history With the upcoming development of the AIPM History eBook, you are invited to share your story or to sponsor this important project. Here, we take a look at the early history of AIPM, starting with the formation of the Project Managers Forum. AUSTRALIA'S PROJECT MANAGERS Forum (PMF) developed out of discussions between Bruce Hovey and Brian Doyle in Sydney in mid-1976. Both felt strongly that they could learn more about the emerging field of project management by conferring with other practitioners and that a forum would be an appropriate vehicle to facilitate this. They found other people who were enthusiastic, which led to an initial meeting in July 1976, attended by 15 people. The first full PMF Committee was formed on 7 September 1976, with Professor Ron Woodhead as President, Br uce Hovey as Chair man and subsequently Life Fellow, Brian Doyle as Secretary/ Treasurer, and six other founding members, including current AIPM Life Member Alan Stretton. e rst public meeting of PMF was held on 9 November 1976. Bruce Hovey outlined the vision of the organisation and Alan Stretton then spoke on a participative approach to constr uction planning and control. is meeting was SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES The AIPM History eBook will be launched during the 2014 AIPM National Conference in Brisbane, with an information stand where the eBook will be on show and contributors will be available to chat about times past and what the future might hold for project management.

The first for mal National PMF Conference was held in February 1978 in Sydney and proved to be a great success. This initial conference was followed by seven more in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and Canberra. From the outset, the PMF had intended to establish an Australia- wide organisation, although initially activities had focused on Sydney. A Victorian Chapter was formed in 1978, followed by South Australia in 1981, Queensland in 1984, and Canberra in 1987. The Wester n Australian Project Management Association (WAPMA) was formed in 1982, eventually joining AIPM after the latter's transition from PMF. Increasing pressures to tur n the PMF into a professional organisation were specifically addressed at the PMF conference in Adelaide in March 1987, and endorsed in principle. A for mal decision to establish the Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) was made at the PMF conference in Brisbane in June 1988. ••• PUBLIC FORUMS ON A WIDE VARIETY OF PROJECT-RELATED TOPICS WERE AN INTEGRAL PART OF AN ONGOING CONTINUING EDUCATION PROGRAM
