Press Release Summary: It is a fact that in the current economy, there is a stronger
need for individuals who know how to effectively lead organizations in the balancing
of ever-changing schedules, decreasing budgets and resource pools, and demanding
business asks. Project Managers are, in fact those leaders best suited to deal with
these challenges.

Press Release Body: On November 6, 2008, the Washington DC Chapter of the Project
Management Institute (PMIWDC) will host its annual International Project Management
Day conference and awards event. The event, dedicated to the profession that is
having an ever-increasing impact to the success of organizations, has an appropriate
2008 theme of "Managing through Changing Political and Economic Times."

Nationally recognized speakers, Lee Lambert and Carl Pritchard lead this informative
evening for business managers, executives, and project management practitioners. A
vendor exhibition from leading project management tools and solutions providers will
be on-hand for attendees as well as a buffet dinner and networking reception. A
recognition ceremony and celebration of PMIWDC's first ever Project Manager of the
Year Award will also be part of the evening's activities.

on-time and on-budget in the current economic and political climate should make
