The latest APM volunteers forum was held in Birmingham over the weekend of 19th 21st September and had around 75 enthusiastic volunteers attend.

Those present heard an opening presentation from APM chief executive Andrew Bragg that summarised APMs performance over the previous six months and gave an update on APMs internal development programmes.

Following this delegates took part in a workshop on facilitation led by Tony Mann. APM Knowledge SIG Chair Judy Payne then updated the forum on the research work that her group are doing in the field of knowledge management. 

Delegates then had the choice of attending a workshop on stakeholder management facilitated by the APM Thames Valley branch or a discussion about APMs approach to diversity led by APM Women in Project Management SIG Chair Teri Okoro.

After networking with other APM volunteers over lunch, the first session was an open mic session where a number of suggestions were made including one that suggested that APM needs to have clearer guidance for graduate level professionals that provides help on available career paths.

After all the serious daytime sessions, the group then visited Birmingham Think Tank Museum for a private tour, dinner and more networking.

There are a number of volunteering opportunities with APM. Find out how to get involved.
