On Saturday, January 7th, 2023, PMI Malaysia hosted a strategic planning meeting at The Gardens Hotel. The event brought together new board members and key stakeholders to discuss the organization’s goals and plans for the upcoming year.

One of the main highlights of the meeting was the selection of new board members. These individuals bring a diverse set of skills and experiences and are dedicated to the growth and success of PMI Malaysia.

Attendees also had the opportunity to meet and interact with the PMI Asia Pacific support team, including Siti, Xing Ying, and Ye Yoon. This was a valuable opportunity for members to gain insight and advice from experienced professionals in the field.

The Board of Directors set an ambitious goal of achieving 3000 members by the end of 2023. This goal was met with excitement and determination by all in attendance, and the organization’s various portfolios discussed strategies to work towards achieving this goal.

The strategic planning meeting was a productive and successful event for PMI Malaysia. With a dedicated team, new board members, and a clear goal, the organization is well-positioned for growth and success in the coming year.
