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.
To apply for consideration, send a signed letter explaining the nature of the hardship, along with the membership renewal invoice, to the attention of the Manager, Member Services prior to the membership expiration date. Please remember that any incorrect or untrue statements made by a member are in violation of the Project Management Institute Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and may lead to the initiation of an ethic complaint in accordance with the PMI Ethics Case Procedures.
