PMG Training & Project Management
What is a PMG and why do

A PMG is the acronym for Project
Management Guide.
It is used in the Jaycee organization for a
variety of purposes.

implement a project or event.

by the chapter board and membership.

from the chapter.

Materials and Resources you will need
and Potential Problems and Solutions.

• This is where you run the actual project
or event, be it an afternoon, or several
weeks (such as a Haunted House).

How do I use a PMG?

Consider each Letter a different value.
A = Appropriation from the chapter and is
the same in both the income and expense.

D = the total of all income and the total of all
expenses. Both numbers should be the
E, F, G = Arbitrary amount of purchases
made to run the project ie: pens, signs,
tickets, whatever....
H = Profit. Basically it should be the sum of

as a proper equation:
H (Profit) = D-(A+B+E+F+G)
