DTLA Virtual | Task Overload! When It’s Just Too Much


Task Overload! When It’s Just Too Much

When unwelcomed change, conflicting priorities and emotions are the norm, chances are better than good that you are experiencing task overload and increased stress. This virtual meeting will demystify unwelcomed change, align task management with purposeful planning, and explore a practical decision-making model. When it’s just too much, a topic like this comes along to save the day.

Meeting Details

The Downtown LA Meeting converted to quarterly evening meetings in 2019 on the USC Campus.  As such, it has been a chance to offer more intro Project Management topics to students.  With the current pandemic, the Academic Outreach team reached out to the Downtown LA Meeting team and decided to offer 2 monthly virtual meetings and then 1 quarterly in-person meeting on campus (governement permitting).  Please send any topics that would be of interest to AcademicOutreach@pmi-la.org.  While ANYONE can attend our meetings, please keep in mind that the topics will be geared towards academic outreach.  PMI-LA Chapter Students can attend these events for FREE, but they MUST register to get the meeting details.  If you are interested in becoming a student member, but don't know how, please reach out to the academic outreach team.
