PMI Armenia Potential Chapter members visited and took a group photo on 02 October 2016 in front of Hayk Nahapet statue.

Hayk Nahapet’s statue has been chosen as an icon for PMI Armenia chapter logotype, since it stands for fortitude, determination and commitment to the ultimate goal. One needs the qualities but these for any endeavor in managing a project.

The legend states that the history of Armenians takes back to a story about Hayk Nahapet (Hayk the Tribal Chief) who defeated Assyrian King Bel and established fortress, giving a start to a nation living near area of Biblical Mount Ararat. Long after, Hayk’s descendants developed into flourishing nation with rich cultural heritage and traditions. For more information please visit Hayk Nahapet's wikipedia page.
