New York, NY (PRWEB) April 1, 2009
International Institute for Learning, Inc. (IIL) today announced a significant contribution to PMINYC, the New York City Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI), becoming the organization's first and only Diamond Sponsor-the highest category of sponsorship available. With IIL's sponsorship, the PMINYC Chapter hopes to offer enhanced education and networking initiatives for the Chapter's 2,600-plus membership base.
"We are honored to support the efforts of the PMINYC Chapter and the wide-ranging opportunities it brings to the New York City project management community," said E. Laverne Johnson, Founder, CEO and President of IIL. "PMINYC's mission to grow their membership not only in numbers, but also in knowledge, in skill, and in competence, is in perfect alignment with our own corporate philosophy. We have a profound appreciation for the work of this chapter and we welcome the opportunity to build a stronger relationship with our New York City clients at this critical level."
IIL has long been a supporter of PMINYC, hosting the Chapter's meetings in the IIL Learning Center at the company's headquarters in the early days of the chapter's formation. The Chapter held monthly meetings at the IIL Learning Center until growth demanded they seek a new space for meetings and events. Since then, IIL has partnered extensively with the chapter to offer its services at Professional Development Days and Chapter meetings, in addition to arranging speakers on a wide variety of topics.
"PMINYC's theme for 2009 is 'Building Bridges for Our Future;' this includes building bridges across our Rivers, across our Oceans and across our Communities-or R-O-C as we call it. We believe we can truly "ROC" NYC with the PMINYC Chapter and all it has to offer," said Beth Ouellette, PMINYC Chapter President. "Partnering with IIL as our Diamond Sponsor advances all of these targets. In our world today, we have many challenges, and it is logical to forge partnerships which are mutually beneficial and fruitful."
She added, "The additional offerings and value-add, along with the high quality that IIL brings to the table, is just the right mix to create tremendous possibilities for the NYC project management community. We are delighted and excited about the bridge we are building for our future."
