As you may have heard or experienced first-hand, our Customer Care team is experiencing significantly higher contact volumes due to the dynamic nature and rapidly evolving situation globally. This is not unique to PMI as many service industries have been disrupted by COVID-19. In the month of May alone, we experienced our highest contact volumes in PMI history, and the volume does not show any sign of decreasing.
Please know we are working around the clock to respond to each inquiry, and we’re continuing to explore alternative ways we can address them. In the meantime, these are the actions we’ve already taken to help decrease the need for members to contact Customer Care.
- We’re updating our COVID-19 Update Page on an ongoing basis.
- We're waiving rescheduling fees for all certification exams until 1 October.
- We’re automatically extending all candidates’ exam eligibility until 18 January 2021.
- We've launched our new PMI Beta Bot, a 24/7 chat bot to answer your basic questions. Check it out on our Contact Us page.
- We’ve created the PMI Customer Care Alexa Skill so members and certification holders can link their PMI.org account to any Amazon Alexa-enabled device to ask Alexa: “What is my member (or certification) since date?” “What is my membership end date?” “When does my certification expire?” “How many PDUs do I have?” Try it today!
We ask for your patience and support in utilizing our Customer Care contact info so we can respond to each member and customer. If you have a question specific to chapter operations, please contact your chapter partner.
Project Management Institute
Hello from the Finance Team,
Please join our Board of Directors (BoD) at the November 19, 2020 Chapter Meeting as we provide reports from each VP as well as the Financial Report. Our current NCPMI finance team has done a great job in providing NCPMI with its financial program delivery system. Finance and Policy Administration plays a central role in sustaining, growing, and helping our Chapter meet its annual mission and objectives for the overall benefit of our membership. This includes activities as diverse as managing contracts, procurement, suppliers, insurance, risk management, policy generation and administration, by-laws, etc.
Let me introduce the Finance team who have taken on the fiduciary responsibility to keep our chapter sustainable:
Beatrice Muganda, Director for Finance
Robert (Bob) Woo
Vicky Kumar, Director for Policy, Contract and Risk Management
During our November Chapter Meeting, we will review our 2020 financial statements and budgeted and actual requirements and revenues. Upon the conclusion of our financial meeting, we would like for you to provide feedback (Chapter Meeting Survey) to let us know what you would like for your BoD to incorporate in its budget for next year. Based upon your feedback, we will incorporate as many recommendations, as possible, into our base budget for 2021.
We are always interested in volunteers who are proficient in Expensify, QuickBooks Online, posting and reconciling financial transactions to online bank and credit card statements, and volunteers proficient in writing policies and standard operating procedures. If you are interested in serving as a volunteer on the 2021 finance team, please email me, Melvin Lee, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, we look forward to seeing you at our November 19, 2020 Chapter Meeting.

The PMI-ACP course focuses on embracing and applying the Agile Manifesto — not a method, framework, or toolkit. You will, though, learn about Scrum, Kanban, eXtreme Programming, lean thinking, and other approaches.
The PMI-ACP global certification supports individuals in meeting the needs of organizations that rely on project practitioners to apply a diversity of methods to their project management — from predictive to hybrid to agile.
NOTE: This class will cover the 21 credit hours which is one of the key requirements for taking the PMI-ACP certification. In addition, students who have their PMP will gain 21 PDUs towards their PMP renewal.
Class Dates: October 3, 10, and 17, 2020

Virtual Workshop Series presented by Apex Systems with Live Q & A: Taking Our Project Management Careers to the Next Level with David Barrett - Workshop 2
NCPMI in partnership with Apex System is offering a Web Seminar Series on Time Management and Communications for All Practitioners. You must watch the on-demand webinar here prior to attending this live question and answer event. These sessions will be free for NCPMI Members and hosted online via ZOOM.
- The project management field out there is pretty crowded out there. It’s no longer enough to be just really good at what you do. You have to be more. It’s no longer build it on time, on scope and budget. You have to add value over and above the normal requirements of project managers.
- So how do we add value? How do we stand out in the crowd? How do we get recognized in this very crowded field? Our speaker will get us thinking about what we can do to innovate our careers and get to the next level.
The infectious disease COVID-19 is crippling most aspects of society. Ending this pandemic will require scientists to develop ways of diagnosing, treating and preventing the disease, and the public is understandably eager to know how close scientists are to these goals. However, scientists often struggle to effectively communicate their research to non-experts, and both politicians and the media are imperfect intermediaries. Using examples relevant to COVID-19, this talk will help non-scientists to evaluate what scientists say and understand what they really mean. It will also provide advice for effectively discussing technical information with lay audiences.
- Understand the “business” of science
- Learn how to evaluate the who, what, and why of science communication
- Identify common unreported limitations of scientific studies
- Discuss ways scientists and non-scientists can communicate more effectively

It is particularly important for Project Managers to maintain and improve their project management knowledge and skills to stay competitive in the market. PMP certification is a critical component. As, during the resent years, project management discipline took a step toward more flexible and dynamic project management methodologies, in addition to the traditional waterfall approach, several new emerging methodologies became in high demand. Thus, training and credentialing in these methodologies became highly sough after among Project Management professionals. It is especially relevant in today's economic climate.
