Volunteer Clean-up Along the Niagara River

Thank you to the PMI Buffalo Chapter members who donated time to cleaning up trash along the Niagara river on the evening of Thursday, June 17th. The group gathered at Gratwick-Riverside Park in North Tonawanda, and armed with gloves, pickers, buckets and black bags, they scoured the river’s edge for garbage that either was left behind by park visitors or washed up along the shore.

Thanks to our chapter President Jeff and his wife Joeleene, our VP of Outreach Sue, and members Jill, Kelli, Paula and yours truly, JoAnn. A special thank you to Jase – our youngest volunteer – who managed to have some fun hanging out with his mom Jill and the rest of us!

 

Sharing Project Management Basics with Local Nonprofits

Despite the impact that Covid-19 had on our work environment this past 15 months, the PMI Buffalo Chapter managed to offer PM Basics education sessions virtually to interested non-profits associated with the United Way – Buffalo & Erie County (UWBEC). 

Two teams of trainers delivered content to 104 people from 38 unique non-profits, including a private class for 1 organization. We also held follow-up Q&A sessions with a few attendees. The classes consisted of two 4 hour sessions held on consecutive weekdays.

If you would like to get involved in our Fall non-profit education program by becoming a trainer, please send an email to pm4np@pmibuffalo.org. Note: Preference will be given to members who have experience in providing education/training.

 

We will begin planning our next social good projects soon and will keep you updated on all of the volunteer opportunities that become available. We hope to engage you in a variety of projects that will improve our community.

Thank you for your support!
