May selected to attend Leadership Institute meeting

Phil May, a senior project manager in Information Systems, has been recognized for leadership by the Project Management Institute (PMI) Piedmont Triad Chapter. He has been selected  to attend the PMI Leadership Institute Meeting 2015-North America on Oct. 8-10 in Orlando.

While there, May will attend meetings with PMI chapter leaders from all over the world to hear remarkable keynote speakers and benefit from more than 60 educational sessions, learn about tools and resources to assist with managing the local chapter, and network with more than 1,100 like-minded volunteer leaders.

May was selected because of his accomplishments as the chapter’s vice president of education, a role to which he was elected last January. Those accomplishments include leading a team in the development of a new course PM 101, A Day in the Life, organizing local Project Management Professional (PMP) prep classes, which includes offering these classes to Wake Forest MBA students through an on-going partnership with the University’s School of Business, and teaching PMP prep classes.
