Join Your Local Chapter
PMI Chapters are volunteer-run communities that allow you to connect to other project management professionals, develop your skills and give back to your local area. Watch the video below to find out how belonging to your local chapter can benefit you.
Why Belong to Your Local PMI chapter?
Take advantage of the many chapter opportunities for you to:
- CONNECT: Meet fellow project managers at chapter-sponsored events and monthly meetings. Build your professional network and gain insider connections at companies in your area who can help you find new opportunities.
- DEVELOP: Continue to be relevant and stay up-to-date on emerging trends in the project management field. As the project management field changes with the demand of new skills, chapters provide opportunities to upskill and advance your professional development.
- GIVE BACK: Social good activities organized by your chapter enable project managers to drive change. You can make an impact by dedicating your skills, expertise and time to help your local community.

Frequently asked questions
Can I become a member, then join a local chapter later? How long will the chapter membership be valid?
Yes. You can join one or more PMI chapter(s). You cannot be a chapter member without being a PMI member. Your PMI and chapter membership expiration dates will be the same regardless of when you add a chapter(s). Therefore, if you only have four months left of your PMI membership, your chapter membership will expire in four months as well, despite when you joined the chapter.
How long does it take for my Chapter Membership to be active?
Your chapter membership will be active once PMI has received payment. You will receive a confirmation email that your chapter membership has been processed. A timely notification response depends on the chapter, typically a few days.
