Chapter Leader Benefits

More than 3500 PMI Chapter Volunteers serve each year on PMI chapter boards and working groups. These Chapter Leaders are at all stages in their careers, from newcomers to senior-level practitioners. Volunteers are at the heart of everything PMI chapters do to benefit their local community of project managers. They drive the chapter’s direction, share project management knowledge and expertise, and develop and deliver services to their peers.
