Have you considered getting more involved with your local PMI Chapter? Serving as a board member is a great way to build local connections, learn new skills, and leverage your strengths!
All PMI certification holders must earn Professional Development Hours (PDHs) to maintain their PMI certifications. These PDHs can be earned through various professional development activities that include Giving Back and Volunteering on your local chapter board. You can earn between 6 to 25 PDUs a year! Although volunteering is a great way to earn PDUs, you do not have to have a PMP certification to be a Board member.
Serving as a Board member can help you develop networking skills, communication and presentation skills, in-depth knowledge of PMI credentials, delegation, and negotiation skills, just to name a few. A Board member spends approximately 10-12 hours per month as a volunteer, which includes board meetings, chapter meetings, and duties for the office held. The President and President-Elect Board members serve a 1-year term. All other Board members serve a 2-year term. You do not have to be a current Board member to be the President or President-Elect.
