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
Veteran mentors at www.ementorprogram.org is an organization that connects veterans with individuals (veteran or not) who want to provide mentoring support for job searches and career counseling. Consider getting involved with this program and helping with project management guidance or any other subject matter where you have expertise.
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.
