PMI-LA Chapter celebrates 40th anniversary!

PMI-LA Chapter celebrates 40th anniversary!


And here’s to the next 40 years!  That was the champagne toast for all the attendees at our anniversary celebration on Saturday 12th July.  We were joined by several VIPs – including CJ Waite, representing the PMI Board of Directors, who gave the opening speech; Tony Appleby who is our Region 7 mentor; and also Darryl Jackson, our Chapter partner.  There were many new faces in the audience, interested to learn about the history of the Chapter and its growth since 1974.


We were pleased to greet some of our Past Presidents that were able to join us for this historic event – how many can you recognize?

But it was really the venue, the Queen Mary that stole the show.  The Queen’s Salon, which once served as the ship’s first class lounge, looked fantastic decked out with the ruby tablecloths and lovely real flower center pieces, and the art deco at the back wall (unicorns in battle by Gilbert Bayes).  The food was excellent, the service was great, and the afternoon program was interesting for everyone.  It included highlights of each decade – music, sports, politicians, as well as big projects in the Southland; and live music was performed by the Flashback Cowboys.

A tribute was paid to Charlie Lopinsky, Lee Mandley and Vijey Kumar, who all went above and beyond for their volunteer service to the LA Chapter.

We would like to thank Deby Covey and her team of volunteers for putting on a superb event!

If you have any comments or feedback about the event, please send an email to as we would love to hear from you.

LA Chapter Wins Another Award from PMI!


Some of our Board members and volunteers had an opportunity to attend the 2014 Region 7 Conference*, held in Las Vegas, at the end of March.  It was a big surprise when PMI announced that the Los Angeles Chapter had won the 2013 PMI Chapter Retention Award – especially because the previous year we were the lowest chapter in Region 7 for member retention, yet with the highest growth!  So our growth and our retention finally aligned to provide the Los Angeles Chapter this very prestigious award, out of all the chapters of 1000+ size in all of North America!  Several of the other Chapters in attendance asked us how we did it: honestly, we have just been trying to meet our member’s needs.  With 8 programmed meetings spread across the LA area, 6-7 customized meetings a month, several Professional Development seminars and opportunities, our members have spoken by renewing their memberships with our chapter.  We would like to thank all our LA Chapter members for their continued support.
