Along with more time spent on television viewing and Internet surfing, as well as greater emphasis on personal time for recreational and social activities, generational differences increasingly make a significant impact on the demographics of professional societies. Four generational groups – Seniors (1922-1945), Baby Boomers (1946-1964), Generation X (1965-1979), and Generation Y or Nexters (1980-1990) – represent volunteers who grew up in the shadow of World War II as well as those raised in the glow of computer screens and video games. This presentation will explore the nature and scope of volunteerism in professional societies as seen through the eyes of these different generational groups.
Mr. Garcia became a member of the Project Management Institute and its local San Antonio chapter, the Alamo-PMI, in 1995. More recently, he has served the chapter as its President for the 2005 fiscal year. Mr. Garcia was instrumental in organizing Alamo-PMI joint meetings with the Institute for Supply Management and the American Society for Quality. For the past 25 years, he has been teaching graduate-level courses in business-related subjects, and he currently teaches courses in economics, finance, operations management and supply management, online and in-classroom, for Webster University. In addition to his membership in the Project Management Institute, Mr. Garcia is an active member of the Institute for Supply Management and the National Association of Business Economists, and he served as the president of local chapters of both organizations.
