Welcome to the first of many installments of the VPMMA newsletter! VPMMA has evolved over the last year from a startup to forming a cohesive group focused on delivering quality mentoring and services to veterans wherever they may be in their journey. We continue to look for methods to enhance our offering for veterans and industry to benefit both. Some examples include:
Our board actively searched out a mentoring platform to improve the mentor/mentee experience for the future. By researching over six different platforms, we were able to see the benefits and disadvantages of the different systems in supporting our outcome of providing industry-based project management career mentorship and networking opportunities for our great Nation’s Service-Members, Veterans, and Military Spouses. In the end, our research identified Qooper as the new platform we will be using for the future of our mentoring platform.
This fun event will bring together the VPMMA collective and sponsors for a virtual run/walk while helping hundreds of veterans, service members and military spouses start, navigate and/or advance their careers in project management. Each participant whether pledging or as a runner/walker will be able to make a contribution to VPMMA.
This is just a small sampling of what is in store in the near future. With the coronavirus pandemic continuing to provide challenges, our future golf tournament in Arizona will be on the horizon for Spring 2021…more to follow. Thanks for your support of VPMMA, veterans, project managers, and industry. Until next newsletter, stay safe and stay strong!!
