All volunteers who are accepting a chapter leader role for the first time, or moving into a new role, are highly encouraged to participate in the Chapter Leader Orientation (CLO). CLO is presented partially as an annual, live event and partially as on-demand viewing. Chapter leaders will learn about current PMI strategy, basics of chapter governance, and chapter leadership approaches. There are also short modules for specific chapter roles associated with marketing, membership, finance, and more. CLO is always available at orientation.pmi.org
Leadership Institute Meetings
In regard to chapters, the purpose of the Leadership Institute is to develop chapter volunteers to be effective leaders of sustainable, successful chapters. This is achieved in part by offering the opportunity to collaborate in productive, curriculum-driven educational sessions at Global Leadership Institute Meetings (LIMs) held several times a year virtually, in-person, or in a hybrid format. Learn about recent and upcoming LIMs at PMI.org/lim
Leadership Institute Master Class
The Leadership Institute Master Class (LIMC) is a year-long learning opportunity that is part of PMI’s continuing efforts to cultivate volunteers. This program is designed to provide intensive training and development in leadership techniques, strategic and business management practices and other key skills applicable to volunteer, career and interpersonal development. The program is currently being paused so we can explore delivery options that accommodate the new world we live in. Watch for updates and announcements in PMInsights.
LIMC Alumni Program
Graduates of the Leadership Institute program (see above) continue their leadership journey by interacting with the Alumni group on various platforms, and by attending PMI-provided offerings at Global Leadership Institute Meetings (LIMs) and at the Virtual LIMC Alumni Annual Conference.

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.
