President – Bill Parris
I've worked in Information Technology over eighteen years and directly in large scale project implementation for the last thirteen years. I have been an active member of PMI-CIE for over four years and have worked actively to grow both our services and our membership. I am currently employed as a supervising business analyst for Riverside County. I have a B.S. in Information System Management and am currently pursuing graduate degrees in business administration and public administration.
I am deeply committed to developing the untapped potential within each person. My vision for the chapter is to increase member participation in the many educational opportunities we offer and to advance the field of project management through our events. I am happy to have the chance to enhance and continue the legacy of excellence at our chapter. I urge members to contact me with suggestions and ideas on how to enhance PMICIE's role in our members professional lives.

As the primary fiduciary officer of the Chapter, I plan to see that the financial policies and procedures of the Chapter are adhered to and to protect the assets of the Chapter. This includes insuring that all the monetary details of our revenues and expenses are handled properly and recorded as required by the appropriate accounting principles and regulations. This also includes periodic and as-needed reporting of our financial position and activities. I plan to provide the resources for our Chapter operations as well as for growth in our various activities through the budgeting process. While I am the financial “lead”, I see this as a team effort with the grateful participation of other Board members and Chapter members.

VP – Professional Development: Dane Cordsen, PMP
I have worked on projects in the investment Securities, Fund Raising and Electric Utilities industries. For the past 10 years I have focused on engineering projects “inside-the-fence” for Southern California Edison such as Transformer Bank and Circuit Breaker replacement, Grid Modernization and Load Growth. I have also used my Six Sigma experience to successfully implement process improvements for our engineering units. I was an R3 Super user for our SAP rollout and was “knee-deep” in the requirements gathering and user testing phases. I have a B.A. from Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington.
As the VP of Professional Development I am looking for opportunities to provide members with avenues for professional and personal growth. I have taken on the task of developing a stable and long term mentor program, I am looking for ways to sponsor PMP certification training classes in more convenient locations throughout our large territory and I am interested in working with other chapters and with our colleagues in the government/military.
