A message from the president.

February is a perfect month to start a new project. Now that the holidays are behind us and we've taken some time off, we are fresh and rested--energized to take on something new. We at PIMA share in this mind-set and are excited to launch Membership Month this February, which is a month long program that will bring new benefits and opportunities to you. These benefits include leadership opportunities, quality learning sessions at a discounted rate, benchmarking with top industry leaders and so much more!

For PIMA members, Membership Month is a time for you take advantage of the many valuable benefits you are entitled to: Sign up for one of our interactive online training sessions. There is currently a session on Project Management being offered, and a three-part series on Costs and Finance: Understanding the Complete Picture of Operating Costs, Achieving Rapid Significant Mill Cost Reduction and Performance Measurement: Monitoring and Maintaining Those Cost Reductions starting at the end of the month. PIMA members receive a 10% discount on all Webcasts.

Membership Month is also a great time to get involved in your Division. Many Divisions host Spring roundtables and golf outings. It's never too late to help in the planning, and certainly mark your calendar and plan on attending. A full calendar of division events is listed on this page.

Perhaps, the greatest thing a PIMA member can do during Membership Month is to pass along what it means to be a PIMA member to someone who could benefit. Reach out to that future leader or new Superintendent and encourage them to join PIMA today. Bring a colleague to your next Division meeting and get them involved. Show someone the value of a PIMA membership this month.

Everyone has a personal testimony of the value of their PIMA experience and what PIMA means to them- Membership Month is the time to share that story. If you have a story you would like to share, please e-mail it to pandrus@amctec.com. We look forward to running your "PIMA Experience" in subsequent publications.

Thank you in advance for your help in making our Membership Month a success!
