Asilomar Conference, 970612
PMI Board in SF at Peterson, 970322
080501 - Asilomar May be Cancelled this Year
080503 - Followed up work at ref SDS 32 line 29 notifying Jake that Hank Hatch
080504 - cannot do Asilomar this year.
080506 - Bill advised there was a PMI Board meeting on Saturday where
080507 - consideration was given to cancelling the Asilomar conference this
080508 - year. He advised the final report on Asilomar for last year has not
080509 - been submitted, nearly 8 months after the event. Bill recalled that
080510 - he filed the final report on Asilomar in 1994 within a few weeks after
080511 - the event. Accounting of revenue and expenses by the PMI finance VP
080512 - indicate discrepancies of significant proportions. Judy Painter, PMI
080513 - President, asked to review the agenda for Asilomar before publication,
080514 - and it was published without performing this review.
080516 - Bill expressed disappointment in the Asilomar theme,
080518 - Human Aspects of Project Management
080520 - ...which was cited by Jake when he called last month to solicit
080521 - support contacting General Hatch, ref SDS 31 line 87. Evidently
080522 - Judy and others on the PMI board feel this theme and conference
080523 - planning does not offer an attractive agenda.
080525 - It sounded like other matters might be involved. There will be
080526 - another Board meeting this week to decide whether to remove Ahmet from
080527 - the Board.
080529 - These circumstances seem to relate to difficulties getting things
080530 - done, reflected by the record of planning Asiloamr for 1996, ref SDS
080531 - 2 line 79, ref SDS 3 line 37.
080533 - Bill discussed considerations of candidates for the new PMI president.
080534 - Evidently Ahment is thinking of having his name put forward for
080535 - nomination. We considered Bill, but he feels he does not have enough
080536 - time. Paul Nelson would be a good choice. Paul seems to cite
080537 - possible conflicts with a SIG matter, but that seems like it could be
080538 - worked into the duties of being president. Paul does not have an
080539 - organiztion for admin support, but that might be solved by using PG&E
080540 - resources. Constance NLN works with Peterson. Bill feels she could
080541 - do a good job, but may not get the support from Peterson for time off
080542 - and so needed to make the job feasible for her. John Stauffer is
080543 - president of his construction company. Bill seems to feel John could
080544 - use the resources of his firm to accomodate the duties of PMI Chapter
080545 - president, but John had some difficulty getting membership duties
080546 - accomplished, although Bill seems to feel he is doing a better job
080547 - now. John is a new comer and so may need for time in service to
080548 - qualify for this assignment. He is working on the PMI project of the
080549 - year program, as part of membership program.
