Editor’s Note  
Dear Friends,
Warm Greetings from the PMI Bangalore India Chapter!

The Chapter is once again abuzz with PMPC 2014 activities. PMPC, acronym for Project Management Practitioners Conference (PMPC) is the flagship event on Project Management, organized every year by PMI Bangalore India Chapter. It is the largest and most popular Project Management conference to be held from 20th-22nd November 2014 at Bangalore.  

PMPC demonstrates the Chapter’s commitment to serve the professional community with a structured knowledge sharing platform. PMPC is the confluence of professionals who feel passionate about making a difference to their personal and professional lives by learning from Subject Matter Experts, Business & Thought Leaders and Project Management Practitioners. We are living in an era where speed has become synonymous with progress, where technology gadgets have become our new sense organs, where health care has reached the corners of the country, where banking and retailing have moved from brick and mortar buildings to hand held networked devices, information is no more a prized possession of handful of experts, hence it is an apt time we recognized the role of Project Management in transforming our lives. That is the thought behind choosing “ARCHITECTING PROJECT MANAGEMENT for transforming lives…” as the theme for PMPC 2014. The conference will present how advancements in technology, manufacturing, health care, education, social sector etc. have touched our lives and made permanent impact in the way we live, study, collaborate or do business. A strong and enduring vision backed by sound Project Management practices is the key to unleash the potential from such innovative and transformative initiatives. PMPC, like any other Chapter events is primarily driven by volunteers. Like myself, many volunteers are working hand in hand to carry out a detailed planning and then carrying out the execution of various tasks allocated to them. It is good to see the deep sense of motivation and commitment pervading in the PMPC meetings, where volunteers, debate, discuss, argue and thrash out the details in the best interest of giving the conference delegates a great learning experience from the event. It is also a good place to get a hands on training on your leadership and influencing skills. Volunteers also savors satisfaction and self fulfilment from doing something that make a positive difference to our PM community. If you need to participate in the volunteering work at Chapter, please do feel free to communicate with us.
