Chapter Rebranding: Latest Deadlines and Information

Over 250 newly rebranded chapter logos are now on the Marketing Portal, with more being added every day! Please check the marketing portal for your logo package. If you do not see it, please contact your chapter partner. We realize some chapters may still be in the revision process; please work with your chapter partner to have these completed as soon as possible.

We would also like to remind you that the deadline to rebrand your chapter website is 31 March 2020. If you have not yet done so, please reach out to your web service provider. If you utilize Proteon, Star Chapter, or MG2 Media, they will invoice PMI directly for the cost of the rebrand up to $US500. Also, the brand team has connected with the 3 vendors to review and approve chapter websites as they are being completed.

If your chapter does not utilize the above providers, please send your vendor the brand guidelines, chapter logo and font files. In order to be reimbursed $US500 the brand team has to approve each chapter’s website. Please reach out to Sue.Verica@pmi.org to start the process. Please involve Sue early in the process so if edits are needed it can be done before the work is completed. To be reimbursed follow these instructions and include your invoice.

Please review these approved branded websites to help your chapter in rebranding: pmisydney.orgpmiguayas.org, pmirochester.org and pmi.org.uk.
