PMP should be PiMP! Renewed my PMP!

Associations love acronyms, and the federal government likes to make acronym soup as well.  Project Managers love acronyms more than anyone, so you can imagine the acronyms floating around the association dedicated to Project Managers: the Project Management Institute (PMI).

PMI has a few certification programs (PMI-SP, PMI-RMP, PMI-PgMP), but the certification that I’ve had since 2006 is the Project Management Professional (PMP).  While much of the country may not value the PMP credential as much as they should, the PMP is highly valued around DC.

Our book is out! SharePoint for Nonprofits

Sean and I finally finished our book: SharePoint for Nonprofits: The Definitive Guide to SharePoint for your Nonprofit, Association, Charity, and .ORG.   We actually finished it during the week of Thanksgiving 2010, but I’m finally getting around to chatting about it.

There are hundreds of really great SharePoint books already out there that cover the admin and code level stuff.   This book is NOT about installing SharePoint or writing code.   SharePoint for Nonprofits provides details about leveraging specific needs of trade associations, membership societies, volunteer organizations, and other nonprofit associations, charities and .orgs; and how SharePoint might be used to satisfy some of these needs.

FREE SharePoint 2010 Session in Chicago on July 13

I will be presenting a SharePoint 2010 session on Tuesday morning, July 13, at the Hotel Allegro in Chicago, IL.  SharePoint 2010 is poised to completely revolutionize how organizations connect people, processes, and information.  SharePoint 2010 has arrived and there are three big questions on everyone’s mind:

  1. What are the key functional improvements in SharePoint 2010?
  2. What are the immediate and practical benefits of upgrading to 2010?
  3. What are the strategies, costs, and risks of upgrading?

Join me for a FREE workshop to find out everything you need to know about SharePoint 2010.  This is not a SharePoint marketing presentation – I don’t work for Microsoft.  This is a SharePoint overview with a detailed demo of SharePoint 2010′s new features.  I’ll also be providing critical insights learned since we have already been implementing and launched solutions on SharePoint 2010.  Breakfast will be served (did I mention that this is FREE?), questions will be answered, and I will help you find out exactly what you need to know to make an informed decision about whether SharePoint 2010 is right for you.

Please note that space is limited and registrations will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis.
