Information Sessions: Proposed Updates to the Authentication Standard

We are holding sessions in September, October, and November to inform our members of proposed updates to the Authentication Practice Standard. Productive dialogue and professional feedback is encouraged.

Project Everest: Reaching New Heights in Project Management

Climbing Mount Everest is one of the greatest feats of human endurance, combining unparalleled physical and mental challenges with some of the most extreme conditions imaginable. Alan Mallory took on the challenge and set a world record when he, along with three members of his family, reached the summit. Join us on December 14 as Mr. Mallory takes project managers on a similar journey. The dynamic session focuses on developing project managers and strengthening project teams by reinforcing the skills and expertise essential for success.
