„Athens Declaration“ – deklaracija o zajedničkom nastupu i ujedinjenju aktivnosti PMI ogranaka iz Evrope

Kategorija: Aktuelnosti,

Na sastanku predsednika evropskih PMI Chapter-a, održanom 21. oktobra 2016. godine u Atini, obavljeno je svečano potpisivanje dokumenta „Athens Declaration“ od strane predsednika 25 PMI ogranka iz Evrope. Ovom deklaracijom ozvaničeno je nešto o čemu se već dugi niz godina priča među liderima evropskih PMI ogranaka, a to je veća integracija, zajednički nastupi i ujedinjenije aktivnosti PMI ogranaka iz Evrope.

Potpisivanje ove deklaracije će doneti brojne pogodnosti za naše članove, obzirom da će za svoju članarinu koju plaćaju PMI Serbia Chapter-u, biti članovi svih evropskih PMI Chapter-a sa svim pravima koja imaju lokalni članovi. Osim toga biće izrađen evropski PMI kalendar dešavanja, baza znanja, baza sponzora, baza govornika i brojne druge pogodnosti za članove.

Detaljniji opis Atinske deklaracije i njenih benefita, kao i kopiju potpisanog dokumenta, možete pronaći u nastavku (tekst je u izvornom obliku i na engleskom jeziku):

What does the Athens Declaration say?

“We agree that by working together, rather than individually, our Chapters will be able to offer greater value to our members, thereby retaining and growing our membership.”

“Many of our key partner organizations have operations across Europe. By working together, our Chapters will offer greater value to our multinational partners by providing them the same high standard of services wherever they are.”

“By collaborating with one another, our Chapters will be able to be more cost effective by removing duplication, reducing costs and increasing revenue.”

“We agree today to identify areas in which our Chapters could develop shared services. We agree to convene a group of leaders who will deliver these shared services for the benefit of the community.”

Why do we need a declaration?

If PMI was a company that had 31 branches operating in Europe, we would definitely look at coordinating our activities to reduce duplication, increase revenue and acquiring and retaining members. Many of our Chapters have collaboration agreements with one another but when all Chapters in Europe get together as one community we will be able to absolutely maximize impact.

How do we create a community of 30,000?

PMI Europe Chapter Membership (PECM)
  • This is a mechanism to bring together our individual Chapter membership into a collective European community of 29,779 (as at September 2016).
  • It will offer Chapter members the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of not only their home Chapter but also benefits offered by other PMI Chapters in Europe.
  • PECM will only be available to members of PMI Chapters in Europe.
  • To avail of this benefit, practitioners will register with their Chapter of normal residence first.
  • Before traveling to another European Chapter they inform details of the event they want to attend to the host Chapter.
  • They host Chapter registers them for the event on the same terms as the host Chapter’s members.
  • Benefits to Chapters include:
    • promotes the strength of the PMI brand
    • an excellent marketing message to acquire new members
    • increasing the PDUs available to members
    • PECM will be operated for 12 months starting January 2017 to monitor impact.
