   Professional Development Day 2018 - 'Lean Into Agile  

Well, our Professional Development Day for 2018 is now a thing of the past. If you missed it, then you certainly missed out on a great event with fantastic speakers including our very own Paula Maychruk. She delivered an outstanding presentation called ‘Fight Night! Agile vs Waterfall’. Thank you to all of our speakers, Brock Argue, Kim Szuta, Lisa Christie, Josh MacKenzie, Crick Nelson and Erkan Kadir, who all had wonderful presentations.

On behalf of myself, the Board and Chapter members, I want to give an enormous thank you to all of the volunteers who made PDD 2018 possible. They include the following committee members: Tony Iannuzzi, Achala Vinnakota, Lavina Wiebe and Mike Jones. The PDD Volunteers consisting of: Maggie Xu, Mayowa Akanbi, Fiona Koether, Sheri-lyn Shaw, Vanessa McLachlan and Andrei Dragomir.
