A Message from the President
Dear valuable members of PMI Regina South Sask!
It has been almost a year since all of our lives have been impacted by Covid-19.

- Virtual Monthly Meetings and virtual AGM
- Virtual Professional Development Conference in 2020 in collaboration with PMI North Sask
As your Board we remain determined, efficient, committed to excellence, and poised for continued success in 2021:
- Continue to offer virtual Monthly Meetings to provide quality speakers/presentations to help our members maintain their PMI credentials and to network with their peers
- Upcoming AGM in March
- Offer another joint virtual Professional Development Event in 2021
We will continue to monitor this pandemic and make all the appropriate decisions and changes when needed.
Looking forward to interacting with you all to strive to maintain the excellence of PMI Regina/South Saskatchewan.

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.
Grow Your Skills
It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
