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 - January 2021


I hope you all had a time of rest and relaxation through the holidays, even if this year's festivities may have looked different.

What a strange year we are closing out. I've seen a lot of sentiment towards 2020 in the vein of "Good Riddance", which I think we can all relate to. Whether our losses feel big or small, we all lost a lot this year. For me, the loss of day to day human interactions and a general sense of normalcy, has taken its toll. I have NEVER looked more forward to attending an in-person chapter meeting or a board meeting as I do now! 

No situation is ever all good or all bad, and the pandemic is no exception.  

There have been some very specific wins for our chapter this year.  For those that have been with us for any amount of time, you know that one of our struggles has been figuring out how to offer more online and virtual content; this year, necessity has forced us to find solutions in this space.  Along with accelerating the timeline for our technology, our move to online meetings has increased our speaker pool.  With travel no longer posing as a constraint, we can now search for speakers anywhere in the world. Lastly, our online world has allowed us to continue to connect with and build strong partnerships with other chapter leaders.

It's part of the modern day human experience to take stock of the year that has passed, as we start the next.  Do you make resolutions each year?  If you do, do you keep them? You don't have to answer that! In my personal life, I never made resolutions, but for many years, I have taken the time to set goals as the new year begins.

As I start this year as your Chapter President, my focus will be on these key areas:

  • Ensure our chapter is able to respond to changing needs in the coming year. We have made the very tough decision to not meet in person until July 2021. This will be adjusted if and when needed, based on available guidance and information.  Seeing you all in person will be the highlight of my presidential term.
  • Continue to offer services and programs that meet the needs of our membership. As a board, we are here to support you.
  • Work with each VP to develop a succession plan for their teams, in order to build a pipeline of strong Chapter leaders into our board positions. If this is all I accomplish this year, this is where I want to leave my legacy. I am very passionate about ensuring we have new board members to innovate, alongside those that have experience in leading our chapter. I believe that in order for our chapter to grow to the next level, we need a solid mix of new and seasoned board members.
  • Strengthen our existing relationships while building new relationships with other chapters. While we have a lot to offer chapters, we also have a lot to learn from our peers. As in all aspects of our lives, we can always do more together than we can alone.

When I ran for the position of President-Elect, I was looking for a new challenge. Well, in this mid-pandemic year, I have surely found it. I look forward to continuing to weather this storm with all of you, coming out on the other side as an even stronger chapter. 

Thank you,

Jessica Johnson, NCPMI Chapter President, 2021

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.
