 Please see our website for more details on the above events.

We are taking a different approach for the May and June education sessions, in an attempt to meet the needs of those who cannot afford to spend a full day, or even half a day for that matter, to attend our Professional Days. So, these events will not begin until 3:30pm - allowing you to work almost a full day – and get in 1 or 2 different education sessions to earn up to 3 pdus.

We are bringing in 2 very experienced speakers for the May and June education sessions:

  • May: Frank Saladis is former President of the PMI NYC Chapter, received the distinguished award of PMI Fellow in October 2013, and was the recipient of the PMI Distinguished Contribution Award in October 2015. He is a Project Management Professional and has been a featured presenter at the Project Management Institute ® Annual Symposia and World Congresses and many other project management events.
  • June: Michael O’Brochta has written and presented papers at every PMI North American Global Congress during the past decade-and-a-half as well as at many international, and regional conferences. While a senior project manager at the Central Intelligence Agency, he led the project management and systems engineering training and certification program to mature practices agency-wide.

As always, if you should have any questions, concerns or issues related to your PMI membership or the PMI Buffalo Chapter, please see our “Contact Us” page on our website, or feel free to reach out directly to me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I hope to see you at an upcoming event, JoAnn
