A tribute to Slimane Zergoun, co-founder of Algerian Project Management Association

It is with sadness that we learned that Slimane ZERGOUN, an engineer from the well-known Ecole Polytechnique of Algiers/Algeria and founding member Algerian Project Management Association (APMA), member of IPMA, passed away on 08 August 2021. Slimane has served the association since the beginning of 2013 through many contributions at conferences in Algeria and has promoted the project management profession where ever he could. Slimane was known for his availability, his rigor, and his dedication as a volunteer. He was one of the first IPMA-certified project managers and a member of the certification remit at APMA. Recently he was preparing himself to become an assessor and trainer with the team in charge to prepare the running of the certification body in Algeria. Destiny has decided differently by taking him to rest in peace forever. He was also very dedicated to the preparation of the international conference on sustainability in project management in Ghardaia in 2020 in the South of Algeria, a conference which was postponed due to the Covid context.
We hope that the recognition and the tribute we can make to Slimane Zergoun as members of APMA will be the hosting of this conference in Ghardaia that was so important for him” explains the board of the APMA.
This would be done by welcoming many experts in project management from many countries, discovering Ghardaia under its many facets; architecture, sustainable development, savoir-vivre, and the hospitality and generosity of its inhabitants.
Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
