SPMI arranges and coordinates various types of activities for chapter members.
- Scholarship & Prizes
Volunteers within SPMI help organize various kinds of events throughout the year that members can register for. They fall into 2 categories:
- Professional Development
- Networking Events
Professional Development events are organised to bring chapter members closer to thought leaders within the Project Management profession. Such events also carry PDU which are useful for maintaining your continued certification requirements: CCR. PDU's are aligned with the new PMI Talent Triangle http://www.pmi.org/learning/talent-management-resources.aspx
These events vary in the number of PDU's they can offer
- Professional development:Networking Events: These do not carry PDU but offer valuable opportunities for members to network and share their experiences with the project management community
- Group Discussions: This moderator led event on a pre-determined theme allow for attendees to share their experiences and views and are fun, dynamic ways to promote mutual learning
- Seminar: They are typically over 2-3 hours and help bring respected Subject Matter experts to the SPMI member community. They follow a seminar format and are on a single topic
- BootCamps: All day focused content that help the attendee to attempt a certification exam. They can serve as refresher courses for somone who have previously attended a multi-week training program at an REP but not attempted the exam immediately after.
- Special Events: Workshop/ Symposium: These are full day/ multi day events for large groups cover multiple topics and speakers usually under a collective theme
The primary function of our Outreach team is to promote the PMI-Singapore chapter within this region. Through continuous relationship building efforts with businesses and other professional organizations we strive to add value to our members and the community at large. Our activities also include collaborating with educational institutions and corporations to provide basic project management education, speakers and communication channels to reach out to the members.
