After you join the Project Management Institute®, you have the opportunity to join your local PMI chapter. What's in it for you, to become a member of your local chapter?
1. Gain Knowledge, to Help Your Projects
The educational sessions and keynote dinner presentations will keep you up-to-date on the latest trends in project management, leadership and communications. The knowledge you gain will help you deliver better projects.
2. Employment Opportunities
At my chapter, PMI-Portland, we pass the microphone during the dinner meeting. Many job-matching opportunities occur as the microphone is passed. Are you looking for work? Raise your hand and briefly describe what you can contribute. Are you an employer, seeking applicants? Describe your opportunity. Many chapter members have used this opportunity to further their careers.
3. Earn PDUs by Attending the Chapter Meetings
When you attend a monthly chapter meeting, you can earn two PDUs. You'll earn one PDU at the educational session before the general meeting. At the general meeting, you'll earn another PDU by attending the keynote presentation. If your club meets ten months out of the year, that's 20 PDUs per year, or 60 PDUs in three years...meeting your 60-PDU requirement to renew your PMP® credential.
These are only three reasons to join your local PMI chapter. There are so many more. Contact your load chapter from the chapter directory on the PMI website, and join today.
