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

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.

Reimagining 2020 Leadership Institute Meetings

The global community is facing uncertain times and new challenges in 2020. We are here to equip you with the relevant tools and information to continue supporting your chapter and feeling confident in the future of your region. While nothing can replace seeing everyone face-to-face, we hope that a virtual event will help you stay connected to your fellow leaders and up-to-date on all things PMI.
