PMI's Hardship Provision
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.
