Special thank you to IIL
Laverne Johnson, Lori Milhaven and the IIL team have planned and delivered an International Project Management Day event every year since the idea was first introduced in late 2004. The team at IIL saw the value in building on the belief that a day of recognition was needed for the hardworking, dedicated, and often unappreciated efforts of the many project managers who ensure successful delivery of project and services around the world. The International Institute for Learning is a leader in further enhancing the skills of the professional project manager and has been a significant supporter of the Project Management Institute Educational Foundation, an organization dedicated to learning, knowledge sharing, and professional development in the project management discipline. My sincere thanks to everyone at IIL for supporting IPM Day and for the creative way they are giving something of value back to the international project management community.
