Dear PMI-NAC Chapter members, please note that additional parking has been added to AEgis building on the south side as we enter from Jan Davis Drive. AEgis has asked that anyone who uses the facility for an outside event park in this area. This will allow for their visitor spots to remain open for their customers who might arrive for business purposes and other events. Please be mindful of this as we arrive for our chapter luncheons and other meetings & events. Thank you!
