Welcome Cologne!

The new PMI Germany welcomes all members of the (former) PMI Cologne Chapter and gives you the membership for the sake of simplicity. And over 50 members have already taken advantage of this in the first 24h.

"Cologne welcome" you could say. Early on, the project group for the merger of the PMI Chapter landscape agreed to hold the door wide open for all PMI Chapter members from Cologne and to offer a free membership in the Germany Chapter. To make sure that these ideas are followed by actions, the executive board offered this to all PMI Chapter members in Cologne.

High tension in the last meters

In the end, it got really exciting again. The finish was a heartbeat finale and not for the faint-hearted.

By Thomas Wuttke

Do you ever hear that? In a criminal story 2/3 of the time are over, but the case is already solved and the protagonists treat themselves to a beer at the bar. But there's still something to come... A twist, a surprise, an insight that shakes everything up again.

It was something like that in the final part of the PMI Germany Chapter merger project. Originally, the general meetings for the approval of the merger were supposed to take place already in April 2020. Thanks to Corona, everything had to be postponed - but politics had subsequently laid the groundwork for virtual general meetings. And so, after the summer break, the membership meetings at the participating chapters were held in September 2020. The approvals of the members were all more than 90%. Done. Done? The remainder is only a matter of formalities. Register the association and the whole thing is done. This is the moment when the protagonists in a crime novel meet at the bar.The following restriction hovered over us: The registration had to take place in 2020 because, in formal legal terms, the merger had already begun on January 1, 2020. Define 2020? 31.12.2020 23:59h.
