Feb 2020 Dinner Meeting: What PMI’s Certification Changes and the Transformation Mean to You
Join us Thursday, February 20 as we hear from
Brenda Phillips, PMP® and chapter VP of Professional Development
and Jennifer Williams, PMP® and chapter President
What PMI’s Certification Changes and the Transformation Mean to You
A PMI certification(s)—recognized globally—validates that you have the knowledge, skills and experience to contribute to project, strategic and organizational success. And you worked hard to earn it—why not show everyone your accomplishment? Learn what has changed about PMI’s certifications, how/where to obtain your certification(s) and hear about anticipated changes to the companies who offer certification training. We will then discuss more about PMI's transformation and what the project economy is, what the brand change means (including info on the symbols we're seeing), and our own chapter’s upcoming brand changes. Doors open for networking at 5:30 pm, chapter business will be presented at 6pm, and our guest speakers will begin at 6:30pm.
