The following is a Message from Brian Sampson, President of ABC Empire State Chapter:

“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” – Albert Einstein

Let’s think about that for a moment.  We can fill the mind with an endless supply of facts and data points, but if the person who possess those facts can’t actually think, have we really helped that person get better? The simply answer is no.  And as an industry, we’re losing the ability for our company to think because we’re losing the people that think for it. And that spells trouble for our future.

An aging workforce that’s retiring at a rapid pace brings both a shortage in workers and a shortage of thinkers.  We need to build our next generation of thinkers.  That’s why we’re hosting a nationally renowned expert in a critical area of your success, Project Management.  You can read more on the class, just Click Here.

You all know that person in your company that you see will be a leader.  It’s that sometimes soft spoken person that comes in early, stays late, never complains and always gets their work done.  Or it’s that Foreman that is really talented in the field, but he/she is just scratching the surface of their potential.  Harness their potential for your company before someone else takes them from you.  And trust me, we’ve all seen it happen and it won’t stop anytime soon.

This intense, 20 hr. program, will help to develop critical thinkers in your company.  It will help to develop key staff that over the course of the next few years will emerge as the leaders within your company, the lifeblood of your growth and success.  For more information about the ABC Project Management Institute, please contact Amy Platenik, our Education Director.  She can be reached at (585) 363-1657 or via email at
