Welcome to the Carnival - PMI Style!

Late breaking update -- bring a friend even as a walk-in, and you both can get a free PM Tools meeting in 2016 -- that's another PDU each!

Our focus is on:

  • Member Professional Development (to help members build skills around the PMI Talent Triangle)
  • Opportunity for members to “give back”
  • Chapter Talent Growth, (from a board perspective) to have more volunteers supporting our activities as well as creating a pool of skilled and engaged talent for succession
  • Providing member value, the same price as our regular dinner meetings but you receive 2 PDUs instead of 1

Join PMIWDC and local community partners for the 2015 Volunteer Fair, an evening of fun, games, exciting prizes and a chance to learn how you can get engaged with some of the most meaningful projects in the DC area and with the chapter. Volunteering is one of the most satisfying and rewarding ways to earn PDUs - especially when you're giving back to the profession. But did you know it's also the best way to network? Volunteering gives you the opportunity to demonstrate your awesome PM skillz to a whole new crowd of people who really need what you bring to the table. It's also a great way to explore new interests and get fresh insights from other like-minded leaders. And it also leads to leadership development by taking on volunteer and leadership positions with the chapter. All this and a cash bar! How can you resist?

Come collaborate with us at the 2015 Volunteer Fair on October 20, 2015, 6:45-8:45pm at the Fairview Park Marriott.

Door Open for Networking at 5:30pm!

About the Monthly Dinner Meetings

The PMIWDC Monthly Dinner Meetings are held at the Sheraton Tysons (8661 Leesburg Pike, Tysons, VA 22182), typically on the second Tuesday of each month (subject to change due to holidays and venue/speaker availability). Members and non-members are welcome to join us for the best speakers and networking the Washington, DC area has to offer.

The presentations are educational and informative to those professionals operating in the field of project management and functioning in leadership roles in industry and government. It is also of great value to those looking to step into the field of Project Management and begin their certification process. Each event will present specific learning points focusing on building a talent triangle of technical, leadership, and strategic and business management skills, unique to the presenter's area of expertise and the subject matter discussed while directly relating to improving the practice of managing projects and leading others. At each Monthly Chapter Event certified PMPs can earn 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU).
