Programs Overview


The PMIWDC Program Events have something to offer to everyone in the Project Management Community. The events include the Monthly Chapter Events, Special Events, Local Community Meetings, Book Clubs, and Webinars. The Monthly Chapter Events are the main events featuring dinner at the centrally located Sheraton Tysons Hotel. The Special Events are held on weekday mornings, Saturday mornings, and at local universities to accommodate busy schedules. The Local Communities Meetings are convenient for those that can only spare their lunch hour. Finally, the Webinars are a great option for those not available to attend the in-person events. All of the events offer PDUs in the three PMI Talent Triangle areas including Technical Project Management, Leadership, and Strategic and Business Management.
