CANCELLED – PMI Nashville March 2020 luncheon – Unorthodox Project Management: Focus on People then Projects

March 17, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Dear PMI Nashville Community,

As you are certainly aware, many Nashville area events have been cancelled or postponed due to the health risks related to the COVID-19 virus.  Your chapter leaders have been monitoring the advice provided by the CDC, WHO, and other reliable health sources.

In the interest of the overall safety of our community, we are cancelling all in-person events for the rest of the month of March, including the upcoming Luncheon on Tuesday, March 17th. For those individuals who registered, you will be receiving a full refund to your credit card as quickly as possible.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will evaluate all upcoming events. We strive to offer programs which provide meaningful content and information to our members to enhance your project management skills and earn PDU’s. The in-person experience for events is a valuable format. However, while there are health concerns, we are making plans to shift to an online method wherever possible. Details for each event will be communicated as they are solidified.

Should you have questions or concerns, please contact us at:


David Benneyworth, PMP
President , PMI Nashville Chapter

About Presenter: Jasmin Gammel, PMP; Vice President of Technology at Fortera Credit Union

I have over 19 years of experience in the Financial Services Industry, with the last nine of those years focused on Project Management and Technology. I have my BA in Business Administration, my PMP, ITIL, Network+ and Security+. I was recruited to my current position as VP of Technology at Fortera Credit Union to introduce Project Management into a company that never had a formal project process and had a track record of not completing things on time or correctly. Based on my success with that I was asked to transform the Technology Department from chaos into one that used process. I am regularly sought out to advise on mentoring and teaching soft skills needed to be successful in the workplace. PMI Member ID: 1826490
