Professional Development Day (PDD) is an annual event dedicated to learning and networking.

The PDD is designed to cover subjects that are relevant and on-trend in project management. It also provides individuals with an opportunity to earn Professional Development Units (PDUs) towards PMI® certification applications or renewals.

On average 300 professionals attend the event and highly valued speaker(s) present on topics covering Leadership, Strategic and Business Management Skills.

Click here to register NOW for the Tuesday, October 13 2020 virtual event.

Schedule and Content

This one-day event typically features a speaker who is an expert in the project management field and who may have spoken at a previous WMPMI, another PMI chapter event, or authored a book on project management.

Professional Development

Typically, this event satisfies between 7-8 PDUs.

For members expecting to use event PDUs toward certification renewal, there are a couple of ways to report and apply the event's PDUs.

One way is to provide your PMI ID# at the time of event registration and upon attending the event, the PDUs associated with Chapter events will be reported to PMI (which may take up to four (4) weeks to be applied). PMI will confirm PDU’s via email.

A more timely way is to report your PDUs directly to PMI using the instructions in the Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) Handbook.

Registration Pricing:
