Meeting Highlights

First-Ever PMI Talent Show, Featuring YOU!

We know there are plenty of chapter leaders out there with a hidden or widely known talent. Maybe you’ve picked up a new skill during the pandemic, or refined an old one. Show off your talent in a short video, and your fellow PMI volunteers will get to vote on their favorite during the live Virtual LIM. Deadline for submission is 21 September. See submission details here, and get ready for your 45 seconds of fame!!


Opening Session with Sunil Prashara

PMI was in the middle of its transformation journey when the pandemic hit. We quickly shifted to be sure project management professionals, PMI members and, most importantly, our volunteers, had the tools and support needed to help them pivot in their own roles. Hear about new tools and initiatives from PMI as well as the vision for the future in a session presented by Sunil Prashara, President and CEO, PMI, and Tony Appleby, PMP, PMI Board ChairChair, hosted by Brantlee Underhill, Director, Global Chapters and Volunteers. There will be plenty of time to take your questions in this session.


Increase Your Knowledge

The purpose of the LIM is to ensure chapter leaders have the skills and knowledge they need to support their chapter. This LIM will include a variety of sessions presented by SMEs, PMI staff and chapter leaders. All sessions will be available on-demand to registrants, but join us live so you can take part in the Q&A following each presentation.
