PMI Manitoba is re-structuring the awards for Project of the Year. PMI Manitoba will make a donation on behalf of the winning organizations to the charity of their choice. The charitable donation will be:
$1,000 for the Project of the Year winner
$500 for the Project of the Year Runner-up
This year, Wawanesa Insurance won the 2016 Project of the Year and chose to donate their entitled amount to Siloam Mission. Juan Saldivar, a board of director of PMI Manitoba and chair of the Project of the Year committee explained "We noticed that what organizations were driven by was not monetary awards, but rather to advance the profession and the community at large. This change is better aligned with PMI and the chapter's vision and values to support our local communities".
To have the opportunity to donate to charity while recognizing superior performance in project management, apply for the 2017 Project of the Year.
