PMI Delaware Valley Chapter has an active Military Outreach Program.
Harris Snyder is the current point of contact for this effort, with support from Frank McKeown, and Jim Snyder.
The team’s primary goal is to support active duty and ex-military members who are interested in Project Management, encouraging them to get involved with PMI and get certified. A second goal is to support veterans where possible, using the team’s knowledge and experience where appropriate.
Benefits available to current and former military members include:
- Reimbursement via the GI Bill for Certification and first year PMI corporate membership costs
- Reimbursement via the PMI-DVC Chapter Guest Pass program for first year PMI-DVC membership cost
- Free resume and career coaching via 3rd party service
On April 7, 2018, PMI DVC was able to continue its outreach efforts by attending the Veterans Appreciation Day at Horsham Air Guard Station in Willow Grove, Pa. This event was sponsored by the Retiree Activities Office (RAO) of the 111th Attack Wing of the Air National Guard, which is station there. PMI-DVC’s team consisted of Frank McKeown (VP of Programs), Brendan Davis (Director of Volunteers) and Harris Snyder (Director of Military Outreach). PMI DVC’s team provided information about PMI, the Delaware Valley Chapter, and specific benefits to active duty and veteran Air Guardsmen.
If you are or know anyone recently departed from the military, or close to the end of an enlistment tour, please contact Harris Snyder to discuss this program and its benefits.
