PMI Strategic Transformation

Volunteer & Channel Partner Program Overview

Overview of the Volunteer and Channel Partner Program by Brantlee Underhill. Recorded May 2019.

Learn About the Volunteer and Channel Partner Strategy Program

The volunteer and channel partner strategy program kicked off in early 2019. PMI is committed to providing our volunteer and channel partners the opportunity to evolve alongside PMI. For this reason, we are leveraging a collaborative approach to build our future state of volunteer and channel partnerships. We’re applying this approach across our relationships with global chapters and volunteers, academic institutions, organizational partners and Registered Education Providers (R.E.P.s). The video above will provide the most current information about this important stream of work, the findings to date and the next steps teams are taking to ensure success in bringing our channel partner programs into our global, digital future.

Reach Out – Ask Questions and Share Ideas With PMI

To increase dialogue and understanding between volunteer leaders and PMI, we invite you to submit your thoughts, feedback and questions on PMI’s transformation—or any topic related to your experience with PMI. Send an email to ChapterSupport@pmi.org. The email box will be monitored regularly, and messages will be forwarded to the person most appropriate to respond or take action. We want to hear your ideas and feedback. Please reach out to us!

Celebration of Service

Global Celebration of Service Goal Doubled in Dublin!

We have been talking about our Global Celebration of Service goal of 50,000 hours pledged in 2019 since we kicked off at LIVPM in January. Thanks to the commitment of chapter leaders and members and other individuals and organizations, we have already reached the goal, which was announced at PMI® EMEA Congress in Dublin. And now, we are working on doubling it to 100,000 hours! The call is still open for all who want to get involved to pledge their commitment at PMI.org/Anniversary.
