Professional Development Opportunities

 Update - On-Demand Access to Monthly Meetings and Seminars

This is a progress update from the team of PMI-GLC volunteers that have undertaken development of an on-demand rebroadcast option for monthly meetings and seminars. The intent is to increase membership value by providing a way to obtain Professional Development training that you’d really like to attend in-person, but occasionally cannot attend - due to other commitments. Requirements have been developed; vendors have quoted; media equipment has been purchased, and the initiative is beginning a testing phase. If you’d like to be involved at some level of the testing and final development, let us know. The PMI-GLC volunteer team would like your inputs regarding perceived value to you and suitability of the platform to meet your needs. We encourage you to join the conversation, and speak-up if this potential new benefit is of interest to you.  Thanks to those who have already provided their valuable inputs. Learn More.
