Highly useful meetings
Joining this group puts you in touch with fellow project and portfolio managers in your area and provides the access to the presentations that have been given at all chapters in the US. This is good stuff!
Expensive but information packed meetings, e.g. Strategic Resource Management & Portfolio Management, typically in the fall.
