We're Looking for Interesting Local
Projects to Profile
Have you recently closed on a project in the Portland area that other PMI Portland Chapter members might be interested in hearing about? We are looking for stories about local projects. You don’t even need to do the writing. We will interview you and capture the fascinating details that describe your methods, approach, outcomes and lessons learned. Final copy will be published in the PMI Portland Chapter newsletter.
Please let us know you are interested by sending a short note to email@example.com.
