Thank you, Sponsors, for contributing to the 2017 Symposium!

The 2017 PDD Planning Committee and our Chapter Board Members are grateful to our generous sponsors – Southwest Power Pool, Arkansas BlueCross BlueShield, and GDH. Thank you for supporting professional development within the Central Arkansas community!

While technical skills are core to project and program management, PMI research tells us they’re not enough in today’s increasingly complex and competitive global marketplace. Companies are seeking added skills in leadership and business intelligence – competencies that can support longer-range strategic objectives that contribute to the bottom line.

By focusing on developing the additional skills we need to meet the evolving demands on our profession, we enable new opportunities to elevate our value as strategic partners in business success.


PDD is a unique opportunity for Arkansas graduate and undergraduate students to immerse in high-impact project management and organizational leadership training. Our aim is to offer this opportunity at no cost to a handful of nominated students. In partnership with our Sponsors, this is one way the Central Arkansas Chapter contributes to proactively building strategic business intelligence in our state!
