PMI North Carolina Chapter

Annual Conference

Professional Development at NCPMI

​Thank you for your patience as we worked through the process of batch reporting of the PDUs for this event.  If you attended a session on October 23rd, 2020 ,  NCPMI volunteers have submitted your PDUs to PMI for processing. In some cases, if your name doesn't match exactly how it is in PMI , if you didn't provide the correct PMI ID and/or did not update your profile to include your PMI ID, there is a chance that the submission did not go through.  If you listened to any session after the event, you will need to self-report. Reminder: Each session has a unique PDU Claim number.
In the PDD Event APP there is a file that contains all the PDU information.  For your convenience, please find it available with this link.
Thank you for attending our first Professional Development Day collaboration with three chapters!  More virtual events will be available in 2021.  
Please reach out to Natasha Hawkins, Director of Professional Development,  if you have any suggestions or topics that you would like to see in the coming new year.  She can be reached at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Hold the Date!  August 23, 2021

The Core planning team is already looking forward to planning the 2021 NCPMI Annual Conference now that we have additional time prepare!!!

If your employer has budgeted for the 2020 Annual Conference and would like to prepay for the 2021 conference, please let us know! We are offering an incentive for you to receive the 2021 Early Bird Rate and group registration rates.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we plan during this time of uncertainty.
