Dear Fellow Project Management Professionals,
Greetings to you and it is happy to see growing interest in the area of Project Management.
We all know that Project Management continues to be a topic of discussion in many forums in our environment . As density of practice of project management in the region varies across different industry areas and organisations, there is an impact on the project outcome as well as cost & time. We are aware that there is considerable work to be done to promote project management usage for bringing right value to the organisations objective or business objectives at the right time and optimal cost. As project management professionals , we should take-up the responsibility to disseminate the knowledge in the region where the chapter is located and support activities that enhances the knowledge and practice of Project , program and Portfolio management.

West Bengal chapter of PMI is one of the youngest chapters in this Region-11. I am happy to have been interacting with the chapters leaders from the formation during 2012. PMI West Bengal chapter has been built by the Chapter members, volunteer leaders and Chapter Board members, with passion and perseverance to provide forum for experienced and budding practitioners in this region . It is good to see a number of advocacy activities by the chapter as well as member focused events being organised to build professional project management environment and practices in the region.

There is need to explicitly communicate the value addition for an individual in learning professional project management knowledge , practicing in the own work environment and sharing the knowledge with others as it will be most useful and immense value providing life-skill gained by an individual.

I would urge each members of the West Bengal chapter to volunteer to contribute to chapter activities that only will strengthen the chapter efforts in Project Management advocacy and knowledge sharing efforts . I would request those who visit this website , also to consider participating in the Chapter activities and consider to be member of the PMI West Bengal chapter.
Best wishes to all.
