Volunteer Opportunities

PMI Charleston Wants You!

Volunteering is not only fun, but rewarding! You can not only earn PDUs for your volunteer efforts but also gain exposure to the field, network with other project management professionals, develop new skills, build quality relationships, and gain satisfaction in knowing your talents helped to improve PMI Charleston!

Your PMI Charleston Board is working to develop a more robust Volunteer Program and in doing so, invite you to pick an event or PMI activity listed below, to help us make it come to life - your passion and experience are needed. All of our activities (from serving on the PMI Charleston Board of Directors to special event coordination) are managed by volunteers, most of whom have full time jobs in addition to their volunteer roles!

Tasks/Activities include:

  • Doing a single task

  • Supporting a specific event

  • Picking a role for an entire year
