A Message from the President: May-June 2020

Greetings Regina South Sask Chapter Members!

I hope this message finds you healthy and safe. These are extraordinary times we are living in right now - experiencing and managing changes and challenges, forcing us to step out of the box and think innovatively in order to succeed.

As a Chapter, we recently held our first virtual AGM and Chapter Meeting. Despite a couple of logistical and technical issues preventing some from joining live, the event was a success. We are working on posting the session(s) online. Since this was our AGM, we want to make sure your voice is heard so please reach out to me if you have any further questions, comments or concerns.

In the foreseeable near term, all of our events will be virtual, so we will be utilizing your email information from your profile as our mode of communications on events and other Chapter updates.

Request:

Please take an action item to review and update your profile information on the PMI.org website at https://my.pmi.org/profile/personal.

I recommend you use a personal email instead of a work email, so that there is no disruption in our communication with you during COVID-19.

The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the people that are working to keep the “lights on” in all aspects of our community. You show amazing strength and courage through these uncertain times and we appreciate all that you do.

Stay Safe.
Robert Dash
President, PMI – Regina South Sask (RSS)

Working From Home Tips

Amid the novel coronavirus outbreak, in response to advisories from public health authorities, municipal, Province of Saskatchewan and the Government of Canada declared a state of emergency, forcing many companies to implement mandatory work-from-home (WFH) policies.

For some project teams, working remotely is either an everyday activity or a totally new playground. No matter which category you belong, working from home because of the coronavirus pandemic might feel overwhelming – unprecedented, in its entirety.

These coping strategies will help you take ownership of your roles while getting work done and maintaining your overall well-being.
