A roundtable is a meeting where Project Managers discuss issues they face on a daily basis. The meetings always start with introductions and usually a solicitation for topics that affect project managers in the public sector. These meetings are worth 1 PDU to PMPs, and can be extremely valuable and fun.

The Agile PM Roundtable is a collaboration between PMI and AgilePDX. This virtual forum seeks to build connections between the Agile and Project Management communities and strives to create an inclusive environment for people with open and curious minds. This Roundtable alternates between speakers on Agile-related topics to a Lean Coffee style format facilitated by experienced Agile PM's and instructors.
The Roundtable meets the second Thursday each month. Meetings start at 7a and end promptly at 8a, and the meeting room usually opens 15 minutes before the official meeting start time to allow you to hang out and talk with colleagues.

As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
