Some obecomingabusinessmentorf us are seeking a successful, professional career, and others have a successful career, but we want to pass on our knowledge. How do we achieve our goals? One way is through synergy (the working together of two things to produce an effect greater than the sum of their individual effects.)

If you find yourself wanting synergistic relationships and you want to give or receive guidance for success, then initiate your membership opportunity to access the PMIRGC Mentorship Program:





pmiPMI has acquired ProjectManagement.com and ProjectsAtWork.com, two of the largest online resources for project managers and professionals. For more than a decade, both websites have provided project managers with access to a broad range of tools and templates, PMO events and one of the most vibrant and diverse global online communities for professionals in project management.




Congratulations on earning your PMI certification!

Now that you are a credential holder, you need to adhere to PMI’s Continuing Certification Requirements (CCR) program. To follow the program, participate in professional development activities to earn professional development units (PDUs) and maintain your credential. To learn more about the program, what are PDUs, how to earn and claim them, as well as step-by-step instructions on how to renew your certification, watch the CCR Video.

The update is necessary because PMI changed the categories, structure and policies governing Professional Development Units (PDUs).

Can I Earn PDUs for Writing Project Management Articles?

Yes you can! Ever since the Project Management Institute (PMI) published the new Category and Structure for Professional Development Units (PDUs) in March of 2011, earning PDUs has become much easier. This is especially visible in Category  D “Creating New Project Management Knowledge”: Every hour that you spend creating and/or presenting new project management knowledge counts as 1 PDU.

Several options are available to PMI Rio Grande Chapter members.
