Volunteer Resource Center

Leadership Institute Master Class

As we look to the future of PMI and its chapters, we recognize a need to enhance the skills of chapter leaders earlier in their leadership journey so they can continue to sharpen these skills and contribute to the chapter’s sustainability. To assure a longer-lasting impact on the chapter, we are changing the eligibility requirements of LIMC to target new and emerging chapter leaders. 

Beginning with the class of 2021, LIMC will be a leadership development program for chapter leaders who are early in their leadership journey and who aspire to develop their leadership capabilities and are committed to applying this knowledge for the betterment of their chapter for years to come. Learn more.

Leadership Institute Volunteer Planning Meeting

An annual planning meeting that brings together approximately 200 of PMI’s global volunteers supporting our advisory groups, board support committees, and region mentors. This valuable meeting serves as an onboarding for new global volunteers, and provides opportunities for development, interaction and most importantly, planning for the new year.
