The Project Management Institute was recently awarded Los Alamos resident John Jones PMI Region 7 volunteer of the year. Jones is a PMI chapter board member.

The award recognized his contributions during the 2013 calendar year. 

The board said that as vice president of programs, Jones had reached out to the membership of the Otowi Bridge PMI chapter, asking what changes they wanted.

Based on membership responses, Jones initiated quarterly dinner meetings and arranged for high quality presenters at these events. 

Jones also spearheaded New Mexico’s inaugural International Project Management Day (IPMD) event last November in collaboration with the Rio Grande chapter of PMI.
