Today's fast-paced, competitive, and economically challenged business environment requires a project management professional to be able to differentiate themselves from their peers. Achieving successful results on projects and being a competent program/project manager positions you as a valuable asset to your corporate organization.
Benefits of being a PMI Tampa Bay member begin with the benefits and resources provided by membership in the PMI national organization. Since its founding in 1969, PMI has grown as the organization of choice for program and project management professionals.
PMI is the leading nonprofit professional association in the area of project management; it establishes project management standards, provides seminars, educational programs, and professional certification that more organizations are requiring for their project leaders.PMI is acknowledged as a pioneer in the field and its membership represents a global community with more than 200,000 professionals, representing 125 countries. PMI professionals come from virtually every major industry including, aerospace, automotive, business management, construction, engineering, financial services, information technology, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, and telecommunications.
PMI stands as a global leader in the development of standards for the practice of project management. Its premiere standards document, A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), is recognized throughout the world as a standard for managing projects. The PMBOK® Guide is approved as an American National Standard (ANS) by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
PMI membership opens up a world of opportunity - sharing ideas and experiences, accessing industry information, attending seminars and workshops on leading-edge topics, increasing your professional exposure through networking and project participation, and gaining leadership experience.
