When you join, PMI will ask to assign you to a Community of Practice according to your PM interest or occupation.
The Project Management Institute has 30+ global Communities of Practice (CoP) supporting Project Managers from all over the world in occupations ranging from Aerospace, Construction, Marketing & Sales, to Women in Project Management. Find out more at PMI.org's Global Community Page (opens in a new window) or their sister site http://www.projectmanagement.com/ .
NC PMI members are proudly represented in nearly every Community of Practice, including Information Systems, Global Communications Technologies, and Pharmaceuticals, three of the largest industries in Research Triangle Park and Eastern North Carolina.
CoP members keep in contact via e-mail, local events, our own member forums. PMI's Communities of Practice will gather this year at the annual National PMI Symposium.
