PMI Vancouver Island Chapter



Many argue that Project Management is more about people than about projects, which is why we believe it’s important to get involved with your local Chapter. Break away from your project and reap the many personal and professional rewards that come when you get involved!

See the many ways you can get involved by volunteering your time at one of the many opportunities that our Chapter offers and increase your opportunities for professional development, leadership, collaboration and networking.

Our entire Chapter is operated by volunteers. All the valuable membership benefits it offers are due to the volunteers that contribute their time and expertise.

Volunteering Benefits

There are many benefits which can be gained from volunteering for your Chapter. Through volunteering you can meet other Project Management Professionals, learn and share experiences and many more.

Additional benefits include:

  • Have input into Chapter priorities and operations
  • Gain experience within a desired area
  • Earn valuable PDUs
