Higher Education

In 2020, Charleston PMI launched a new collaboration with Charleston Southern University and other local higher education institutes headed by Darwin Hochstedler. This inititaive was a major interactive learning experience that partnered students with active practitioners to engage in meaningful and practical discussions surrounding the types of scenarios project managers deal with in their professions. This collaboration was a huge success and we hope to garner as much support and participation at next years' event! If you would like to get involved please email Darwin to ask how.

Aspiring Practitioners - All Ages!

In 2020, Charleston PMI launched a new mentorship program. The PMI Charleston Mentor Program is an additional benefit for chapter members. The program is designed to pair chapter members in a 1:1 mentor/mentee relationship such that both can improve their skills, knowledge, and network in areas related to project management. The program strives to,

  • Support chapter members (mentors and mentees) in developing their personal and professional skills. 

  • Provide an avenue for mentees to explore areas such as career interests, PMI certifications, or working through specific issues from their workplace. 

  • Provide mentors and mentees a chance to expand their network of professional contacts 

  • Increase chapter event participation. Mentors and mentees together can attend chapter meetings and special events.

Anyone who is a member of the PMI Charleston Chapter can participate in the program. You do not need to be PMI certified to participate. If you would like to learn more please reach out to Eric.

PRofessional Development & Networking Opportunities

Monthly Chapter Meetings

PMI Charleston's Chapter Meeting is our premier monthly event, bringing advances and topics of interest to our membership. These meetings are orchestrated on a monthly basis through the efforts of our Vice President of Professional Development. Chapter meeting dates, topics, speakers and links to registration are listed on the Events Calendar

You asked and we listened! Previously our chapter meetings were held on the third Thursday of every month over lunch at 11:30am. We heard feedback that this can be a challenging time for some once travel time is factored in and so we've implemented a new rotation of meeting times starting in 2020. All Meetings are currently virtual due to precautionary measures to mitigate the spread of COVID. As a result the cost of attendance has been reduced to $5 

Our chapter meetings offer PDUs to help you maintain your certifications!

Annual Oyster Roast

Please join us as we celebrate International Project Manager Day! We will be celebrating project managers with live music, games and food! This is a fantastic opportunity to network and socialize with your fellow practitioners and PMI members outside of the more structured chapter meetings. In 2019 we were thrilled to host this event as a joint celebration of International Project Management Day as well as PMI's 50th Anniversary!

Annual Christmas Party

Join your fellow PMI colleagues for an evening of fun as we ring in the holiday season at our neighborhood bowling alley for some friendly competition. This event will be filled with bowling, networking, and lots of holiday cheer! Members and guests welcome!

Annual Seminar at Sea Cruise

Previoulsy the Charleston Seminar at Sea has been a 5 day carnival cruise departing from Charleston. This seminar at sea included the chance to earn 16 PDUs during 2 days of highly valued project management seminars consisting of games and exercises throughout the cruise to enhance your learning experience. 

Annual Business Meeting

Join us for our annual business meeting where we'll recap the previous year's achievement and report out on the outcomes of our annual goals.  

Special Events

Last year's special event was held at the Charleston Gaillard Center where PMI Charleston hosted Anton Gunn, a best-selling author, speaker and consultant, to speak on Socially Conscious Leadership. This event was invaluable in professional development and our members loved being able to network with Anton Gunn and other practitioners during the book signing that followed dinner.
