The PMI Upstate New York Chapter is a forum promoting the principles of the PMI through networking with other project managers, sharing project experiences, providing and receiving training and supporting Project Management leaders in their certification efforts.

UNY-PMI membership is comprised of about 500+ professionals from dozens of companies and a wide variety of industries. The diversity of the UNY Chapter provides an environment for learning about all aspects of project management and networking across industries.

We meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month (September through November and January through May) at The Desmond Hotel in Colonie (see directions). Meetings are open to both members and guests - if you are joining us as a guest, information regarding membership benefits can be found on our How to Join page. For a sample of what monthly meetings are, visit our events page.

Also, by attending the monthly chapter meetings, attendees have the opportunity to earn 1 PDU towards maintaining their PMP Certification.

January 2016 Dinner Meeting


January 20, 2016





Feeling stifled?  Can't seem to make any progress? As humans, we have an overriding desire to make sense of things. Our faith, our science, our projects, the people we work with - we want to know what they all mean, we want a reason for what we do.  What if this overriding desire is the root cause that is getting in the way of our success?  We live in a world of a faster-do more with less-now mentality, but are expected to play by rules that do not fit the model.  I say, it's time to work with a new model; stop making sense and choose progress over perfection.


So is "stop making sense" as simple as saying we should all adopt an Agile sense of mind?  Do we recklessly abandon everything we know?  Your instincts may be telling you that this is not going to be an easy discussion, and you would be correct.  In this session, everything you have been taught, everything you have learned, will be challenged today.  Are you ready to stop making sense so you can finally make progress?  Are you ready to think, learn, and work differently?
