President’s Message – Kathy Harvel



Thank You for Making FWPMI Thrive!


As we approach the holiday season and the end of another year, I want to take a moment to express my sincere gratitude for all that you do to make the Fort Worth Chapter of the Project Management Institute a thriving community.


First and foremost, I wish to thank those who took the time to complete our 2023 membership survey earlier this year. Your insightful feedback has been invaluable in helping the Board identify areas where we can better serve members and make improvements to FWPMI programming and events. Understanding what you find most valuable about your FWPMI membership and where we have room to grow is essential, and we truly appreciate you sharing your perspective. Based on survey responses, we have already begun updating our website, expanding networking opportunities, and incorporating new project management concepts into our educational offerings.


In addition, I am profoundly grateful to our all-volunteer FWPMI Board. Our dedicated directors devote countless hours behind the scenes handling event logistics, managing finances, developing content, running elections - all of the unsung work that is critical to keeping this chapter operating smoothly year after year. Their passion for serving our members and advancing the project management profession through FWPMI is an inspiration. I hope you will join me in thanking them for their selfless efforts whenever you have the chance.


Most importantly, I wish to thank each and every one of our members. You are the lifeblood that sustains this community. Whether attending virtual meetings, participating in discussions, volunteering to speak on project management topics, inviting colleagues to join PMI, or simply maintaining your membership, you steward this organization. Your engagement makes FWPMI a premier destination for project management networking, education, career growth, and community impact right here in Fort Worth.


As we move into 2024 with optimism for the future of both FWPMI and the project management profession, please know that your involvement here is valued and makes a real difference. Thank you for being a part of our PMI family. If you have any suggestions on how we can better serve you or if you want to get more involved with FWPMI in the new year, I welcome your ideas and participation.
