PMI Customer Care notice

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 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.

President's Message - November 2020

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

Lionel Dorismond

Allison Henkel

Derrick Williams

Robert (Bob) Woo

Nagabushana Rao

Vicky Kumar, Director for Policy, Contract and Risk Management

Nitin Kundeshwar

Suresh Iyer

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

Again, we look forward to seeing you at our November 19, 2020 Chapter Meeting.

Grow Your Skills

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.
