This year, the local Otowi Bridge Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI) is initiating a new community outreach plan whereby project management methods are introduced to non-profit organizations to help them successfully execute the projects that benefit and serve our communities in Northern New Mexico.
Its pilot effort is with Self Help, Inc., an organization committed to developing self-reliance in northern New Mexico.
A PMI project manager from the Otowi Bridge group is currently working directly with Self Help to promote and disseminate information regarding its 2-1-1 information and referral project.
The 2-1-1 call center in the Self Help office links individuals from Rio Arriba, Taos, Los Alamos, Santa Fe, Mora and San Miguel counties with appropriate services.
By partnering experienced project managers with nonprofit organizations, PMI is able to offer mentoring and advice to those organizations which plan and execute projects that promote a social mission.
This, in turn, fosters PMI’s mission to promote project management, offer volunteer opportunities to its members, and to be an asset within the community.
Other examples of projects which could benefit from PMI’s pro bono planning assistance might be office relocation, fundraiser planning, or development of a new service. This assistance will be an ongoing program of the Otowi Bridge Chapter in Northern New Mexico.
