Volunteers

The PMI Lakeshore Ontario Chapter needs you!

The success of our Chapter is primarily due to those members who volunteer their time and experience.

Volunteering is key to making the Chapter's vision a reality, providing membership value and above all having fun.

Benefits of Volunteering

  • To learn about PMI

  • Understanding the operations of the Chapter

  • Grooming for officer positions

  • Network with other Project Managers

  • Opportunity to earn PDUs

  • Recognition within the Chapter

  • Promote PM within the community

  • Personal sense of achievement and accomplishment

  • Have fun

Expected Time Commitment from Chapter Volunteers

It should be noted that other than the elected Director positions, our volunteer opportunities generally require on average two hours of active participation (effort) per week. Some weeks may require no participation, while others may be four or more but overall it should be about two hours of effort per week.

Most positions will require a commitment of at least three months. Anything less than three elapsed months is highly unlikely as the PMI standard is to award one PDU for a minimum of three months of voluntary service. Generally, all the Chapter executive positions require a one year commitment.
