We are responsible for keeping the area clean along I-475, the 1.74 mile stretch south of Hill Rd to I-75. We've had great success with our first few clean up days last year and in April, but as always, we’re looking for at least 8-12 volunteers. If you would like to volunteer or more information, you can contact Ed Turley (Director of Volunteers).
Volunteers must be over the age of 12 and wear ankle high shoes or boots and pants. There is a Mandatory Safety Meeting and we will hand out safety vests, gloves, and trash bags. You may bring your own gloves if you prefer.
Meeting Location: Wingate Hotel Lobby (Grand Pointe CT is behind Applebee’s) I-475 and Hill Rd. 8:30am (Coffee provided) Here's a link to a map.
If you cannot make it out in July we will have another opportunity on Sep 23rd this year and in April again next year as well. Hope to see you out there!
Join us for the PMI Thumb Chapter Meeting - 08/16/2017
Topic: The Project Manager Leadership Dilemma: Candid versus Creative Communications
Speaker: William A. Moylan, Ph.D., PMP, FESD, DTM, Eastern Michigan University
Abstract: A key responsibility of the project manager is to communicate reality during project execution. Candid communication exhibited with brutal honesty may cause the project manager to be executed prematurely. Alternatively, the project manager as political spin-doctor spews creative deceit about project progress and performance. The presentation addresses the communication challenges and ethical leadership dilemmas that confront the project manager, and proposes suggestions for astute project communications and project stakeholder management.
Meeting Location: Frankenmuth Bavarian Inn Restaurant, 713 S. Main Street, Frankenmuth, MI 48734
Dinner and Presentation: 6:00 - 8:00 PM, Speaker Presentation begin at 7:00 PM
