Military Outreach

 The PMI-Metrolina Military Liaison program is now live!  PMI has a focus on providing services to our military members.  Late last year, a Director was found who designed a program for the chapter.  Given our footprint, there are 10 military installations and over 135,000 active duty and 140,000 retires.  Our approach is to have local liaisons from each branch at the particular military installation.  So far, we have liaisons for the Army at Ft. Bragg, Marines at Camp Lejune, and Air Force for Pope Army Airfield and Seymour Johnston.  These liaisons are using our program materials to create location-specific materials to provide to interested people.  We are focusing on :

  • active duty personnel by providing PMP type support,
  • separating military by providing Project Management career guidance and support,
  • and networking opportunities for retirees.


The liaisons are also working with our local communities to help provide support for events and activities focused on the military.

If you are active duty or retired military and interested in supporting this program, reach out to the militaryliaisondirector@pmi-metrolina.com for more information.

Chapter Mentoring Program

PMI Metrolina Chapter is rebooting its mentoring program! The goal of the program is to create a mutually beneficial environment to positively share education, wisdom, and career experiences with another individual that can benefit from the direct and personal interaction. Most of the events will be offered in a webinar format, along with some special in-person events. This type of meeting will allow for a mentoring circle approach where one expert will be available to the participants to answer questions and develop knowledge.
