Dear Practitioners,

PMI India held the third edition of the annual Project Management Regional Conference on 22 April. For the first time this conference was organized in east India. Hosted by PMI West Bengal Chapter in Kolkata, the conference provided practitioners in the region an opportunity to gain insights into project management from experts, share thoughts and ideas, and network with peers.

Managing Director, PMI India
The conference theme, “Sustainable Socioeconomic Growth of the Region through Project Management," was carefully crafted to reflect the challenges and opportunities of eastern India. The readiness of this region to embrace faster infrastructure creation and job growth depends largely on how well organizations focus on project management talent development and how projects are planned and executed. The full-day conference focussed on the capabilities that practitioners need to build to fuel sustainable socio-economic growth.

With five keynote addresses and two panel discussion with experts from industry, academia, and the social sector, delegates had a lot of knowledge and fresh perspectives to gain.

With PMI West Bengal Chapter being the youngest chapter of the PMI India family, it was highly encouraging to see a big turnout of delegates. There was a lot of passion and enthusiasm on display by the volunteers — factors that make PMI the organization that it is. I would like to congratulate each member of the chapter board and the volunteers for this tremendous achievement.

Warm regards,

Raj Kalady
Managing Director, PMI India
