This is a group that meets on the first Wednesday of most months. Despite the name, we meet in Troy, Michigan, which is about 20 miles north of Detroit. We discuss project management topics - often issues we've experienced in managing a project. And it counts toward continuing education for the PMP or CAPM certifications. If you're interested, feel free to contact me or see https://project-management.wikia.com/wiki/Project_Management_Mentors_... see more

Reminder: Our next meeting is February 6th. Check out the link, for the location in Troy, Michigan and more... see more
