PMI-NNV Mission:

To advance the capability of practitioners to practice their profession of project management for the benefit of other project managers, themselves, and for whom they do project management work while building professional relationships in a fun and learning environment.

 

 

PMI-NNV is a local chapter of the world’s leading not-for-profit membership association for the project management profession. Our local chapter has over 180 members, and there are more than half a million members and credential holders total in over 185 countries. Our charter is to advocate locally our globally-recognized project management standards and credentials, our extensive research program, and our professional development opportunities. These products and services are the basis of greater recognition and acceptance of project management’s successful role in governments, organizations, academia and industries.

 

How PMI-NNV became a chapter

PMI-NNV was a satellite branch of PMI-SVC (Sacramento) for a number of years. As our membership grew, and snow storms over the Sierra Mountains continued to limit our ability to attend meetings and training courses in Sacramento for half the year, the local board decided to investigate becoming our own non-profit chapter. Two years in the making, PMI-NNV became a non-profit in 2009 thanks to the help and support of PMI-SVC (Sacramento), PMI-SNC (Southern Nevada Chapter), and our local volunteer organization. We are proud of our accomplishment, and our ability to provide superior project management advocacy for Northern Nevada.

 

What is PMI?

Project Management Institute (PMI) is one of the world's largest professional membership associations, with half a million members and credential holders in more than 185 countries. Our worldwide advocacy makes us the global thought leader in this strategic organizational competency. PMI provides:

 

Certification

PMI offers eight certifications that recognize knowledge and competency, including the Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential held by more than 370,000 practitioners worldwide. Salaries and career opportunities for credential holders show that employers recognize the value delivered by trained practitioners. 

 

Global Standards

PMI's 12 standards for project, program and portfolio management are the most widely recognized standards in the profession - and increasingly the model for project management in business and government.

They are developed and updated by thousands of PMI volunteers with experience in every type of project, and provide a common language for project management around the world.

 

Chapters and Communities of Practice

Most of PMI's activity takes place in more than 250 geographic chapters and 30 industry- or interest-based communities of practice. These communities, open to PMI members and led by volunteers, support the knowledge sharing and professional networking that are central to our mission.

 

Training and Education

PMI offers a wide range of professional development opportunities, from our SeminarsWorld® and e-learning courses to PMI global congresses and other events. You can also turn to more than 1400 Registered Education Providers (REPs) for project management training and continuing development. For those in college, the PMI Global Accreditation Center for Project Management Education Programs has recognized more than 60 undergraduate and graduate degree programs. 

 

Research

The PMI Research Program, the most extensive in the field, advances the science, practice and profession of project management. It expands project management's body of knowledge through research projects, symposiums and surveys, and shares it through publications, research conferences and working sessions.

 

Governance

PMI is governed by a 15-member volunteer Board of Directors. Each year PMI members elect five directors to three-year terms. Three directors elected by others on the Board serve one-year terms as officers.


Day-to-day PMI operations are guided by the Executive Management Group and professional staff at the Global Operations Center in Newtown Square, PA, USA.
