Today is International Volunteer Day!
Congratulations to all volunteers from all over the world!👋 We make this world a better place. 👍
I am volunteering for Project Management Institute and PMI Moscow since 2010. And I am sure that PMI is the best professional non-commercial organization in the world and it provides the best volunteering opportunities!
My main activities with PMI were:
- Work at PMI Moscow board - mostly IT-related stuff and helping colleagues
- Translation and translation validation of PMI standards, books and PMI exam questions
- PMI exam development (the most mind-blowing tasks) and validation.
During this time, I have met many wonderful people. Colleagues from my country and many colleagues from other countries. And, comparing with other professionals I met during my lifetime, I can say with confidence that the volunteers are the most professional and most active.
I always learn a lot from our meetings (from how to drink tequila to how to manage the construction of a nuclear reactor). And I am always happy to actively participate and work together. 🤝
