What has been your favorite or most rewarding volunteer experience with PMI Atlanta? Scott Les
My most rewarding experiences as a PMI Atlanta volunteer is the opportunity as a Program Manager to host the Alpharetta Lunch Meeting. Being that this is the end of my third year hosting, it feels like the beginning. What I enjoy most is the meeting of new people who attend the presentation and the facial expressions and comments of the first time visitors. Their enthusiasm and eagerness is simply priceless.

How did you become interested in the project management profession?
While working for Lucent Technologies as an Engineering Supervisor, a colleague informed me that he had accepted a Project Management position and was very excited. He also informed me that he had completed his PMP Certification and couldn’t wait to apply the methodologies in his new position. He also stated that there were several positions available and suggested that I apply. After carefully considering my options, I decided to apply and was offered a similar position and caught the Project Management bug also.

What leisurely activities do you enjoy? Any little known fact that you’d like to share?
I enjoy bowling, reading (favorite author Larry McMurtry) and movies (action, suspense). After the completion of my PMP certification, I was offered a position as an instructor teaching project managers how to pass the PMP certification exam. I really enjoy teaching and the ability to help others do something that would be instrumental in their career.
