The Fall 2019 Professional Development Day (PDD) will be November 1, 2019 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Springfield Country Club in Springfield, PA, titled "Mastering Change with Effective Stakeholder & Risk Management: It's Easier (and more positive!) Than You Think!
Registration is required and attendees will receive up to 8 Professional Development Units (PDUs) for attending both (the morning and afternoon) sessions. For more information including registration details, view the event listing here.
The Chapter’s PDD event is an all-day event held twice a year in spring and fall. PDD is designed to cover subjects that are relevant and on-trend in project management. Also, it provides individuals with an opportunity to earn Professional Development Units (PDUs) towards PMI® certification applications or renewals.
For more information regarding PDUs (including how to earn and report PDUs), refer to PMI’s Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) Handbook.
Schedule and Content
This event typically features a speaker who is an expert in the project management field and who may have spoken at a previous PMI-DVC event, another U.S. PMI® chapter event, or authored a book on project management.
PMI-DVC leadership is aware that the Chapter covers a large geographic area; every effort is made to conduct PDD in a central location to make it as convenient to travel to for as many members as possible.
Group discounts for this event are applicable to groups of four (4) individuals or more from the same company or organization (regardless of membership status). Registration fee information, including the group discount rate, will be provided in the registration information when available. Registration fees may include supplemental material (such as the written work of an authored speaker, or printed copies of a presenter’s slides).
Typically, this event satisfies 8 PDUs.
For members expecting to use event PDUs toward certification renewal, it is important that the registrant provide their PMI® ID # at the time of event registration. PDUs associated with Chapter events are reported automatically to the PMI® (which may take up to four (4) weeks to be applied). PMI® will confirm PDU’s via email. If a speedier application of PDUs is desired, members may report PDUs directly to PMI® using the instructions in the Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) Handbook.
PMI-DVC chapter volunteers are needed to assist with the event operation such as handling the floor microphones, introducing and assisting speakers as appropriate. Volunteer opportunities for this event will be posted in PMI’s Volunteer Registration Management System (VRMS). Selected volunteers will receive a waived event registration fee to attend the session before or after their volunteer duties are completed. In addition, volunteers may apply PDUs as “Giving Back to the Profession,” per the Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) Handbook.
