Please join us for our 2016-17 Mentoring Program! Calling all Mentors and Mentees
The 2016-17 Mentoring Program is looking for current and new volunteers, and it comes with PDU’s! Every year the Project Management Institute of Central Iowa Chapter is looking for more tenured Project Management professionals to volunteer their time (average of 1-2 hours/month) to work with aspiring or junior Project Managers green in their career and really looking for professional development and knowledge transfer of both the art & science of project management.
It is really easy to join and time is managed by the Mentor and Mentee! All a Mentor needs to do is make themselves available, virtually or in person, 1-2 hours/month. The Mentor and Mentee work together to set the schedule and provides insight into the deliverables they are looking for to come out of this 10 month program. Some Mentees are looking for hands-on, real-life knowledge transfer. Where others may be looking to understand a different perspective of practical application in specific industries, projects types, etc., some may be new to project management but understand the value and have a burning desire to develop a career in project management. Your time would be greatly appreciated and if you are interested, or know someone who is, please see the instructions below.
Mentors and Mentees must be a PMI Central Iowa Chapter Member in good standing. The registration fee for the Mentee is $50. There is no registration fee for the Mentor. In honor of a former Member who was made valuable contributions to the PMI-CIC, Jan Post, we are offering a $50 discount to Mentees toward the Professional Development Day registration. This is an excellent opportunity to advance your career and discipline in Project Management.
Would your company be interested in hosting a PMI Chapter Meeting? There is no cost to the company. Requirements would be to accommodate between 60-100 registrants. The Director of Logistics will work with your company café, if applicable, or arrange for catering services. This is an networking opportunity for your fellow project managers. For more details or answers to your questions, please contact Stephanie Dolan, Director of Logistics
A Hardship Provision is available to any PMI member whose financial condition has changed drastically and sufficiently so that a member would have difficulty renewing their membership. A member must be in good standing for at least three previous years to qualify for the hardship provision. Under the provision, a member is granted a waiver for one year of PMI Membership dues and one year of dues for membership in any two PMI Components of which the applicant was a member the previous year. The Hardship provision may be granted for a maximum of two years for each member.
