BEYOND20 Principal Erika Flora Publishes Guidebook for PMI Volunteer Leaders

WASHINGTON, May 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- BEYOND20 announced today the publication of its e-book, "(More than) 101 Ways to Add Value to Your PMI Chapter: A Guidebook for Volunteer Leaders". Written by BEYOND20 Principal Erika Flora (PMP, PgMP), the free e-book offers guidance to local PMI chapters on volunteer leadership, innovative programming, and best practice as taken from PMI chapters around the globe.

The tips and program ideas included in the e-book come from Erika's own experiences as a PMI volunteer leader and board member. Her thorough research, vetting, and testing of these ideas became a robust "How-to" guide – one helped that her increase PMI Phoenix's volunteer count from 2 to 200 individuals in a single year – an accomplishment that led to Erika's selection as PMI International's Volunteer of the Year.

"This e-book was a labor of love, created when I was a new volunteer leader," said Erika. "We had two volunteers to support a chapter of more than 2,000 members. I was desperately trying to find a way to build the chapter's volunteer team, so I kicked off a research project looking at the websites of every PMI chapter in the world. I kept a running list of any new or interesting programs other chapters were providing, and with the help of my BEYOND20 team, transformed that list into an e-book."

The e-book, available for free download, is the ultimate guide for PMI Volunteer Leaders looking to increase volunteer numbers, enhance a chapter's brand awareness, or cultivate deeper engagement among current volunteers.
