The committee of APM Thames Valley Branch would like to invite you to join them at an afternoon meeting designed for Heads of project and programme management within our corporate membership and other organisations with a strong interest in developing professional standards within their project management community.
APM has now launched its pan-sector standard for project professionals, APM Registered Project Professional (RPP), which recognises competent professionals through their ability to be responsible leaders, manage a complex project and use appropriate tools, processes and techniques. For the first time, RPP assesses all elements of APM’s 5 Dimensions of Professionalism in a single standard, thereby enhancing professional status and recognition.
In such challenging times, true project professionals remain hugely valued, reinforcing the message that professionalism has become the mainstay of the industry in recent years. APM Registered Project Professional, therefore, meets a real market demand by externally assessing the competence of the project management community and increasing the likelihood of project success.
We hope you will join us at the Hilton Hotel, Reading on Wednesday 15th June 2011 at 3.00pm to hear how, together, we can raise the bar of project professionalism to a whole new level.
Presentations will include:
- APM’s Strategy & Direction
- The 5 Dimensions of Professionalism in Project Management
- How you could align the future development of your Project & Programme Management Professionals
- How your organisation can gain advantage from Corporate membership of APM and from our Accreditation programme
This will also be an excellent opportunity to meet your peers and to hear how some organisations are already benefiting from engagement with APMs new programmes. The formal event will conclude at 5.30 when drinks and canapés will be served. We hope that you will be able to join us.
Please reply by email indicating whether or not you will be able to attend and if you would like to bring a colleague with you.
Thames Valley Branch Chairman
