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. The team in the past has visited military installations and veteran job fares to talk about the benefits of getting involved in PMI and project management. The team has also provided mentoring to PMI members on request.
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 June 20, 2019, the Military Outreach effort supported PMI-DVC’s annual Certification meeting. Current and potential chapter members who were veterans or active duty stopped by the table to discuss PMI-DVC and be provided with benefit information that can assist them in their efforts to attain a PMI certification.
