What is a Chapter?

    PMI has over 200 chartered and approximately 50 potential chapters geographically dispersed over 67 countries.

    When you apply to become a PMI member, you may choose to join a chapter(s), which provides you with a "network of expertise" in your local area. Chapters provide face-to-face contact with peers from various organizations and industries working in the project management field. Chapters advance the mission and objectives of PMI by promoting project management professionalism within local businesses, universities and professional organizations in the chapter area. Project management professionalism is enhanced through chapter activities, meetings and other educational programs designed to strengthen the knowledge, awareness and understanding of project management principles, tools and techniques.
