Chapter Highlights

Virtual Tools for Engaging Team Members and Membership

Since March 2020, PMI chapter leaders have been trying to figure out a COVID-19 Response for engaging their chapter members, committees, and teams. Since face-to-face meetings were not an option for the greater health of our membership, chapters elected to postpone in-person meetings or go virtual. This article highlights some best practices as discussed within the PMI North American Chapter Leaders virtual meetings as well as the PMI Calumet Chapter and PMI Northeast Indiana Chapter (NEIC) joint meeting held 16 September 2020.
