Types of Membership

Whether you’re new to project management or a seasoned veteran, PMI has a membership plan that’s right for you. Check out the membership options we have for practitioners, students and retirees. Group rates are also available.

Individual

Our individual membership is open to anyone. If your work involves projects or project management, or you simply want to learn more about them, an individual membership is a terrific solution for you.

Student

PMI memberships aren't just for working project practitioners. If you are enrolled full time in a degree-granting program at a college or university that has U.S. accreditation, or the global equivalent, a PMI student membership may be right for you.

Retiree

Your enthusiasm for project management doesn't have to end when you stop working. If you have been a PMI member in good standing for five consecutive years and have retired from active employment, you can take advantage of a discounted retiree membership and stay involved with the profession.
