Congratulations on finishing the third full week of classes this semester! I’m sure many of you are beginning to form groups for your various courses or are trying to remember the names and faces of those you met at orientation. To help with this process and to assist the faculty in connecting with each of you, we encourage everyone to upload their photo via My Places on Blackboard. If you require assistance, review the instructions to edit personal information on My Places in Blackboard.
MSPM Faculty and Students,
It is my great honor and pleasure to assume the directorship of the Project Management Program at The George Washington University. Last week I attended the new student orientation for those beginning the MSPM this fall. The orientation session provided a fabulous introduction to the program, the faculty, and to the incoming students. I look forward to meeting the balance of the faculty and students in the coming months. With regard to the MSPM students, I intend to meet with each of you by the end of October to not only plan your Spring semesters, but to map out your degree plan and to better understand how we may be able to improve your experience at GW.
To better understand me and the path that led me to GW, I’ll briefly outline my background. I earned my BS in Geography from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. Following graduation, I worked in the GIS (Geographic Information Systems) field for a number of years. In fact, my work in GIS brought me to the DC metro area in 2005. I eventually found my niche and my professional passion in non-profit management and administration. So much so, that I recently attained the Certified Association Executive (CAE) certification.
Most recently I was the Director of Operations and Corporate Secretary at the National Contract Management Association, based in Ashburn, Virginia. My responsibilities included management of the association’s 21,000 members, oversight of the 118 volunteer-led chapters, administration of the 27-person office, and management of the association’s board of directors. Via the contract management profession and its practioners, I gained exposure to the project management profession. As it turns out, the two professions share multiple commonalities as core business functions, including the necessity for its practioners to obtain professional expertise in risk management, cost estimating, and scheduling.
My goals for the next 6-12 months include continued promotion of the program to attract high-caliber candidates; to provide superior advisement to incoming and current MSPM students; and to achieve accreditation of the program by the Project Management Institute Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programs. In addition, I will be working closely with the Project Management Student Association (PMSA), as well as the Project Management Alumni Association (PMAA), to assist them in achieving their goals and to establish a greater sense of community.
Bear with me as I learn each of your names and backgrounds in the coming weeks. I look forward to this adventure and working with each of you along the way.
