Success Story - Chapter Membership
It takes immense pleasure in sharing that our Chapter has crossed 2500 members milestone in November 2016 and second highest in APAC region. It was during the Chapter's Strategy Meeting in the beginning of the year that the Board decided that Membership is one of the top three priorities for the Chapter. The Membership team has accepted the challenging assignment and started streamlining the existing process and has initiated lot of activities during the year which includes various membership drives. Some examples are, Welcome emails and Welcome kit to new members, Thank you emails to members who renewed their membership, Reminder emails to members who are due for renewal, Reminder calls from Chapter's associated call center, short verbiage on Chapter events as part of PMI Call Center for the members from Bangalore region, FREE PMI hosted Webinar communications to members for Knowledge enhancements and PDU, Member's Corner section in Chapter's monthly magazine, PM Essence, where members share their experience and benefits from Chapter membership. These activities, along with many networking sessions during Chapter events resulted in Chapter's membership growth. The Chapter reached the historic 2500 mark during November 2016 resulting in 25 % growth from base levels.
The main host of the event was Mr. Wilhelm Wiese Head, India Development Center, ABB Global supported by Mr. Srikanth Ranganathan, Vice President of Engineering Huawei. Core Volunteers who planned & executed this event have been drawn from various companies like Mr. Palash Gupta, Huawei, Mr. K.S. Bhat, Mr. Gladstoe Leslie Samuel from ABB Global, Mr. Ravi Murthy from SAP.
Next PM Open Space session will be held at SAP Campus.
