Dear MSPM students and interested graduate students,
The GW Project Management Association (PMA) elections are upon us. The first step is for interested individuals to nominate themselves for the ballot. Once nominations are received and finalized, the MSPM student body will vote for the new board.
This is an excellent opportunity to actively participate in your graduate program and to help serve your fellow students. Submit your nomination today! If you have questions about the board, contact us at email@example.com.
Are you looking to get involved with student advocacy? The Student Association Senate currently has open Senate seats for graduate students in the following schools: the Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Business, the School of Medicine and Health Services, and the Graduate School of Education and Human Development. There are also two non-voting Senate seats open to all first-year graduate students.
If interested, please fill out the attached application and return it to the Student Association office, Marvin Center 427 by October 23. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to SA Senate Leadership Committee Chair Daniel Egel-Weiss at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest.
The GW Project Management Association (PMA) along with the Project Management Alumni Association (PMAA) hosted an amazing Speed Networking event at the School of Business on Thursday, April 11. Alumni represented many different organizations including:
Deloitte Consulting LLP
Booz Allen Hamilton
Micron Technology, Inc.
Internal Revenue Service
Visionary Integration Professionals
Project Management Institute
The event opened with a welcome by PMAA Vice President Sara Alsaffar and followed by the PMA President, Anna Matsiras, who summarized the events that the PMA had hosted this year.
Then we got down to business. The 30 participants were assigned to tables and the banter began. With some light nudging the conversation began with drafted questions from both the PMA and PMAA. The interactions quickly developed into full fledged conversations. Conversation topics included PMP certification, GW’s integration and accreditation by PMI, industry acceptance of project management as a profession, planning course loads, graduation plans, perceptions of courses and the ever elusive jobs, jobs, jobs!
Everyone had a great time and met new classmates and made strong connections with our alumni community. Again, we want to thank the PMAA for their participation and their co-sponsorship of the event with the MSPM program! Thank you to everyone who came out, and if you missed it, please keep an eye out for notification of the next event on May 10th. We will try to squeeze in a happy hour before semester’s end, too!
