    The tradition continues. Come celebrate, bring a toy, spread some joy.

    As in years prior, the Chapter is partnering with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots program missioned to collect new, unwrapped toys and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to less fortunate children in our community. Please be sure to support this wonderful program.

    Topic: Trello
    Brief Description:
    Do you have a need to create a collaborative, cloud-based, visual board to manage your project workflows?  Then try using Trello.  Trello is a collaboration tool that organizes your projects into boards. In one glance, Trello tells you what's being worked on, who's working on what, and where something is in a process.
    In this PM Tools Session, we'll briefly walk through a short presentation about what Trello is, and both how and why Trello is used by project teams across the world.  Then, we'll do a live demonstration of Trello using the features available in the free version.  Along the way, we'll introduce the agile method called Kanban and explain how Kanban effectively manages workflow by limiting work-in-process.  
    But Trello isn't only for agile teams using Kanban.  Trello is used by Scrum teams, too, to manage their Product and Sprint Backlogs.  Even traditional project teams  using the waterfall approach can benefit from organizing their project-related work using Trello boards.  Everyone can find ways to use Trello boards to organize their important, project information.
    By the end of this PM Tools session, you will hopefully be motivated to create your own, free, Trello account so you can start visually organizing your current (or next) project using Trello.

    We are working real hard to make this a very special unforgettable event.
