The South Florida Chapter is proudly celebrating its 25th Anniversary this year. In recognition of this major milestone, PMI provided the Chapter with anniversary pins bearing the Chapter’s logo.
The pins were distributed to all attendees at the Chapter’s Dinner Seminar in April, and remaining pins will be distributed to attendees at all upcoming Chapter events.
Since its founding in 1988 the chapter has seen its membership grow from a few dozen members to over 1,600 today. In that period it has partnered with business and educational communities to offer innovative programs that have been recognized throughout South Florida.
This year, the Chapter will focus on increasing its outreach through social media while continuing to offer programs and events that will increase the value proposition for its members, sponsors and partners.
We are only one of over 270 Chapters serving Project Management Institute (PMI) members and communities in more than 70 countries around the world. These local communities help spread awareness of the profession and PMI by reaching out to local governments and organizations, hosting events or seminars for local practitioners and providing opportunities to learn, network and earn Professional Development Units (PDUs) toward maintaining credentials.
Your involvement in a chapter can be as simple as attending a chapter event or contributing an article to the chapter newsletter. These activities help you expand your experience, knowledge base and professional network — one of the most valuable tools you possess. But your participation in these groups is not just important to you and your own professional development. It is also crucial to the growth of PMI, which is driven by the work of volunteers.
We are an organization of over 1,600 project management professionals in the South Florida area representing Broward, Dade and Palm Beach counties.
Our Chapter offers a variety of professional and educational programs and events designed to strengthen our member's knowledge, skills, career development, and employment opportunities.
Our ever changing business environment demands project managers who are adept at learning and quickly applying new skills to deliver products and services quicker, and more reliably. Project managers must now be prepared to work with Agile methodologies, social media, and off-shore resources.
Competition for top positions requires professionals who are not only experienced, but also certified and knowledgeable about specific methodologies and industries.
As a Chapter of the globally recognized Project Management Institute (PMI), we offer our members the skills, services and networking opportunities to help take them to the next level of their career.
Some of our professional programs and events include:
• Education and Certification programs
• Job Opportunity listings
• Professional Development Seminars with keynote speakers
• Networking events
• Dinner seminars
• Mentoring opportunities
• Executive Breakfast seminars
• Project related tool sessions
