VP of Membership : Aundrea Madden, PMP     Contact Officer

My name is Aundrea Madden. I am a program manager with TSYS. Though I've held many roles in my almost 17 year tenure there and prior, I am currently responsible for leading and managing strategic, cross-functional business and technology initiatives from end to end. I have always had a profound interest in technology and the opportunities and advances it so rapidly enables. I also enjoy meeting and working with new people and forging lasting relationships, which is why I so enjoy what I do. I joined the PMI community in 2011 after earning my PMP certification. While I am not planning, executing, and controlling work initiatives, I serve in a very similar role at home as a wife, mother of 3, church committee member, and community service organization member. Whenever time or energy gives way from those parts of my life, I also really enjoy leisure travel, jewelry-making, and catching up on my favorite TV shows.
