Trevor Alex, APFPM Secretary and aiPM national director, said the awards program recognises the benefits of effective collaboration with like-minded associations across the asia Pacific. “events like this highlight that projects across the region follow the same project management principles and therefore can by judged by the same criteria. so the obvious benefit of an awards program is to help facilitate a dialogue resulting in a sharing of knowledge between countries,” he added. held on 17 March and hosted by The hong kong institute of Project Management (hkiPM), the independently judged awards attracted various countries. “it was pleasing to see there was a full table of australian delegates, most of whom took home an award,” said Alex. The evening kicked off with a welcome from francis Chan, Chair of hkiPM and Bill Young, aPfPM President. working with the hkiPM to deliver a successful awards program strengthens australia’s alliances with our member associations, according to Alex. “all the associations involved in aPfPM are working closely together towards the common goal of advancing the project management profession.” Prior to the awards evening, the aPfPM held its annual meeting with member associations where the Phillipines and korea were voted as new members, taking the number of aPfPM member associations to 15. “ This is an outstanding achievement, but there is still a lot of work to do to ensure we continue to build alliances, share knowledge in project management and work closely together to further the interests of all members across the asia Pacific,” said Alex . Looking ahead, the next APFPM achievement awards will be held in indonesia in december and hosted by the indonesian society of Project Management Professionals. winners of the national aiPM Project Management achievement awards may be eligible to enter the aPfPM awards. “ we encourage our members to please consider putting in a submission for your local PMaa in 2012 – you could be the next APFPM award winner,” Alex said. ••• Australia strengthened ties with the Asian project management community at the recent Asia Pacific Federation of Project Management (APFPM) Achievement Awards, an initiative of AIPM. above: (l-r) aiPm President David Hudson; aPFPm Secretary and aiPm national Director trevor alex; HKiPm chair Francis chan; and aPFPm President Bill young. top: 2011 aPFPm award winners.
