The Chapter's mission is to promote project management as a profession to the community by:
At our annual membership meeting and ice cream social in July, the board presented the state of the chapter. In attendance were several of you who regularly attend the monthly meetings, many members whom we’ve not seen in a while, and some new attendees. We then opened the floor to invite questions and discussion, which turned out to be quite lively. Many good ideas were brought to the fore that we will explore and build on for the future. We thank everyone who participated.
One surprise that evening was finding out that some people didn’t understand what project management is exactly, or why PMI exists. To the uninitiated, project management is a specific job practiced in a specific field, such as construction. While it may be that, it is also prevalent in a wide array of industries and fields of practice, and weaves its way into many jobs and professions. Examples of industries that use project management are:
PMI’s core purpose is to advance the practice, science and profession of project management throughout the world in a conscious and proactive manner. PMI believes that project management is a critical competence that has a positive influence on organization results and society, believes in accountability and ethical behavior, and that bringing members of the global PM community together is the best way to facilitate their growth and to advance the PM profession. One thing to remember is that all of us practice project management in our lives, whether we know it or not. We are all involved in planning and organizing our everyday tasks, career, and work responsibilities. PMI provides a structure by which we can plan and work and communicate. That’s the nutshell.
