PMI continues to focus on the safety of volunteers and staff, therefore, for PMI events that support and global volunteer audience, we will continue the policy of no in-person meetings through Q1 2021. We will proceed cautiously in planning volunteer events for Q2 and Q3. At this time, we are planning for in-person events in Q4 2021 but will be ready to adjust as the situation warrants. In fact, any event in 2021 will include a virtual element.
LIM Name Adjustment
As part of our pivot, we have adjusted the naming convention of the Leadership Institute Meetings.
Beginning with the three 2020 LIMs, we changed their name to Virtual Leadership Institute Meetings 2020. Instead of using a regional designation, they are differentiated by the date and format of the offering. They share one webpage: PMI.org/lim.
For 2020, the naming convention is:
Virtual LIM 2020 – 9 May
Virtual LIM 2020 – Webinar Series
Virtual LIM 2020 – 17 October
We will continue this approach in 2021 and beyond, as it will allow the program to grow and include both virtual and live Leadership Institute offerings as developed.
We have also stopped recruitment for the next Leadership Institute Master Class. This program will be assessed and re-launched at a date to be determined.
We are excited at the opportunity to consider different ways of supporting the learning and development of our chapter leaders and volunteers and will provide more details about our upcoming programs, live or virtual – or a combination of both – as information becomes available. PMInsights will be our primary communication channel, but you can always reach out to your Chapter Partner.
