Professional Development Days

COVID-19 UPDATE: The health and safety of attendees and volunteers is our top priority. At this time, PDD 2020 is being planned as in-person event. However, contingency plans are being made to convert to a virtual event as public safety guidelines warrant.


Professional Development Days (PDD) is a two-day conference hosted by the Kansas City Mid America Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI). It is designed to help local and regional project management professionals enhance their project management skills through training, while earning continuing education credits for project management certifications.

  • Registration close: September 22, 2020 (walk-ins welcome!)


Registration fees are $550 for PMI KC Chapter members and $700 for non-members. Group discounts are also available. Learn more.
