Hi Everyone, I am the President of the Central Virginia Chapter and wanted to share an exciting event we are having this week. We are holding our Chapter's first ever, virtual Professional Development Days, and we want to share this event with you. Today we are offering the event for the low price of $25 for members and $50 for non members with the opportunity to earn up to 12 PDUs, and as a thank you for sharing this announcement for us, we would like to offer your chapter members our member pricing. Just use the code R514Discount.

We have some phenomenal speakers lined up, and many of them are best selling authors who normally sell their classes for upwards of $800. This is an exceptional deal for anyone that needs PDUs or just wants to learn something new.

After careful consideration and guidance from PMI Global, the PMI Central Alabama Chapter (PMICAC) has decided to postpone our annual Professional Development Day (PDD) until the fall of 2020. This decision was made based on discussions with the venue, speakers, vendors and potential cancellations.

The PMICAC Board plans to offer the PDD in the fall timeframe combined with a 25th Anniversary Chapter Celebration. More communication about the event will be passed along as things become clearer over the summer.

Additionally, PMICAC understands the impact that the PDD has for members’ PDU planning. If members need information about other PDU resources available, please visit the PMI COVID-19 Resource Hub for free online courses or contact the PMICAC Board. Members can also stay connected to the global community at www.projectmanagement.com

All upcoming events and chapter meetings will be individually assessed and will be communicated as needed. Thank you for your understanding in this unique time that impacts all of us!

We start the new decade with a bang as we present the 13th edition of our annual virtual conference and exhibition! Whether you’re a seasoned PM or new to the field, PMXPO provides an excellent opportunity to learn, network, earn PDUs and broaden your perspective on project management.

This year’s show is headlined by keynote speaker Cara Brookins, a bestselling author who rebuilt her broken family by building her own house watching “how-to” videos on YouTube. The subject of an upcoming movie, Cara shares her inspiring story filled with determination, passion and grit. Cara shares tactics to blend an imperfect mix of personalities, talents and temperaments into cohesive, unstoppable teams. These strategies apply to every level of your organization and will change the way you live and work.

PMXPO 2020 will also bring you five more sessions packed with informative project management viewpoints from leading industry experts, covering topics like digital transformation, The Project Economy, building a change-ready culture and more!

Attend this virtual event from the comfort of your own home or office—and the best part is that everyone can attend for free, with absolutely no cost to you or your peers! Register now, save the date, and tell your friends and colleagues you will see them at PMXPO 2020!

This event will be open for on-demand viewing for 90 days after the live event (until June 26, 2020).
