Professional Development

Director's Perspective - Why open the PMI Door

I have spent over 25 years in the military leading people and operations, never associating my scope of responsibilities with the project management profession until my last several years of service.  It doesn’t take a “project manager” to embrace and benefit from this group.  PMI’s tenants focus on technical, leadership, and strategic skills that can be regulated for your purpose, across virtually every profession.  If you are a student who is not quite sure whether you are on the right path, active duty or transitioning military trying to orient yourself to civilian markets, an employee who is unfulfilled in your current role, or an active practitioner in project management who wants to enhance your qualifications or pay your experience forward, we encourage you to explore the myriad of ways that PMI can boost your value.  Take that step toward us.

Our PMI Chapter thrives here on the Emerald Coast of Florida and Alabama and is here to assist you in meeting your professional goals. Questions? Email me at [email protected]
