1. How do I join?
Singapore PMI (SPMI) Chapter is part of the global professional association of project managers, led by the Project Management Institute (PMI). PMI membership is Global. It is administered centrally at the PMI web site.
PMI membership offers membership of the central organisation plus a choice of membership of local branches called "Chapters", membership of specific interest groups "SIGs" and membership of specific knowledge areas. The section below explains how to join both PMI and the SPMI Chapter.

If your organisation has a group of 15 or more individuals wishing to join, PMI offers a Group Billing Plan scheme. The purpose is to make the process of applying for membership and administration of memberships easier for you, there is no group discount.
The Group Billing Plan scheme is flexible; existing PMI members can count towards the 15 minimum members and more staff can be added to the scheme during the year if you wish. Most organisations find that the Group Billing Plan is a great way to ensure a group of project managers all join the PMI at one time.
