Why serve on the DVC

Board of Directors?

The career benefits of Board service are invaluable.

When you apply for jobs or contracts, you need to distinguish yourself from the competition. According to recruiters in 2024, once a position is posted, they can receive as many as 50 resumes within the first few hours. Few resumes get more than a 30-second review, and you can assume that everyone who applies has a PMP, some degree of project experience, and meets most or all of the job requirements.

At that point, resumes are evaluated for what sets a candidate apart. Board service reflects a commitment to the profession beyond certification and experience—it shows that you are someone who gives back. It demonstrates management and leadership skills. You will develop soft skills and showcase your ability to be a team player.

Other benefits of Board service include expanding your professional network and gaining insights into how PMI functions. Service can provide additional opportunities to contribute to PMI projects and teams at the global level if you're looking to aim higher. The time commitment varies depending on your Board position, but you’ll be supported by teams of volunteers—most of whom are experienced in their roles.
