Sponsorship Benefits

 

About us.

One of the tenets of PMI includes our focus on having members obtain and keep the globally recognized Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. Our events help us to achieve this goal for our membership. We provide a variety of focused topics and speakers for current PMPs who wish to continue their personal growth and development while earning valuable professional development units that help them to maintain their professional status. 

Additionally, we offer certification preparation courses for those employees who have identified the importance of becoming a project management professional and whose companies wish to reap the benefits that the designation can bring to their projects, their customers and their bottom line. Finally, KC PMI offers networking opportunities that empower project management practitioners and employers.
