How do I apply to be a presenter at a LIM?
We encourage interested volunteer leaders to submit a proposal to present at LIM during the open call for presentation proposals, which typically takes place from 6-9 months before the LIM. The selection process is competitive and we seek the highest quality presentations to ensure a successful event. The selection process is guided by a volunteer review committee of your peers. Please monitor Friday Facts for notification of when the call for presentation proposals is open.
Professional Development Units (PDUs)
How many PDUs will I receive for attending LIM activities?
The number of PDUs awarded varies for each LIM, for each session and for each certification type. LIM specific information can be found in the onsite LIM journal.
How do I claim PDUs for the LIM? How do I file for PDUs?
PDUs will be uploaded into PMI's Continuing Certification Requirements System (CCRS) within four weeks of the close of LIM. Each attendee is responsible to ensure that their badge is scanned at the start of the session to receive PDU credit for attending the session. In the event you were not scanned or did not receive credit for a session(s) attended, you may submit your missing claim(s) manually.
