The origins of the Luxembourg Chapter go back to around 2003, when a small group of PMI Belgium Chapter members in Luxembourg saw the need for a local presence. A number of local evening events were organised in 2004 and 2005 on subjects such as Risk Management in Project Management, The EU Presidency: A Pilot for a Project-Oriented Organisation, and Project Portfolio Management.
The concept of a local Luxembourg Section began to gain credence, and with the full support of the Board of PMI Belgium from March 2005, the Luxembourg Section was formally launched in January 2006, at an event on Organisational Project Management Methodology (OPM3) attended by the past chair (2005) of the PMI Board of Directors, Mr. Louis J. Mercken, MBA, PMP.
One further event was held in 2006, and from 2007 onwards the Luxembourg Section has organised four events per year, together with regular participation in the annual Congrès Gestion de Project (Project Management Congress).
PMI Belgium provided the Luxembourg Section with a great deal of autonomy, and over the course of time the need for a local Chapter became more evident, and with the full support of PMI Belgium an application was submitted in early 2010 for a separate PMI Luxembourg Chapter.
This application was approved by PMI. The Luxembourg Chapter was incorporated on 5 May 2010, and its Charter agreed by PMI on 30 June 2010.
The Chapter is managed by a Board of Directors. The mandate of each member of the Board is for two (2) years.
