A Night at the Museum: 

Developing Exhibits Using Project Management Methodologies



The PMI Uptown and University Communities will join the IIBA Charlotte Chapter in hosting a night at the Discovery Place museum.  The museum's award winning World Alive Exhibition featuring the Aquarium and three story rainforest will be the backdrop for this meeting. There will be three activities for the event: 

1. The curator of the museum will discuss their projects which translate into the many exhibits through the museum. The discussion will include the process and selection as well as the process of building and marketing the exhibits for the museum. 

2. There will be an animal encounter during the evening featuring one of the museum's animal residents in a close up encounter. 

3. There will be a liquid nitrogen demonstration process with dramatic smoke effects that will yield wine slushies (including non-alcoholic varieties) for sampling. 

Registration is from 5:30pm-6:45pm at the W 6th Street entrance only.  Exhibit demonstrations will be available from 6:00pm-6:30pm.  Meeting presentations will follow from 6:45pm-7:30pm.  Attendees will then explore exhibits until 8:30pm.  Note that this session will qualify for 2 Strategic & Business PMI PDUs.

PMI Chapter Meeting Presentations 
As a means of helping chapter and local community members who are certified as a Project Management Professional (PMP®) satisfy the continuing education requirements for re-certification, PMI Metrolina Chapter arranges its monthly meeting schedule to allow PDU training sessions to be incorporated into its normal meeting. 

Topics presented during these sessions are designed to not only satisfy the PDU requirement for re-certifying as a PMP, but to also provide wide appeal to people involved in project management regardless of whether or not they are certified PMPs. The sessions meet the educational requirements to qualify for PDU credits for maintaining PMP® certification or to meet the requirement for attending 35 hours of formal project management education prior to applying to sit for the PMP® exam.
