The PMI Long Island Chapter continues to be recognized as a dynamic organization of professionals, dedicated towards the advancement and practice of Project Management such that regional Long Island, New York area organizations will embrace, value, and utilize Project Management and attribute their success to it.
The PMI Long Island Chapter is recognized as the predominant, multi-industry professional Project Management Association that provides a forum for project managers and practitioners dedicated to serving the businesses, organizations and educational institutions within our communities.
This will be accomplished through communication with other Project Managers, sharing project experiences, providing and receiving training, supporting project managers in their certification and re-certification efforts, their professional development, and through providing them with career and networking opportunities. To support this mission, we will:
- Advance the practice, science and profession of Project Management, within the regional Long Island area, in a conscious and proactive manner.
- Develop and support a growing and committed membership of Project Management Professionals active in the local chapter.
- Promote Professional Project Management principles and techniques with local businesses, universities and professional associations, and expand corporate sponsorships.
- Create and deliver education that strengthens local Project Manaement skills and is consistent with the concepts covered in "The Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK)."
The Project Management Institute (PMI®) is a not for profit international project management professional association designed to advance the practice of project management through a myriad of services. The key service being a published, structured, repeatable methodology configured to enhance project success. This methodology, called the Project Management Body of Knowledge, or PMBoK®, is both International Standards Organization (ISO) and American National Standards Institute (ANSI) certified and is recognized globally as the leading authoritative body governing project management processes and procedures. PMI® is the largest and most revered association offering certification to members who have both hands-on skills and advanced training, and knowledge of project management. This certification, called: Project Management Professional, or PMP®, requires that a candidate possess certain experiential qualification criteria and to successfully pass a comprehensive computer-based exam administered by a sanctioned testing provider. The PMP® has become the most sort-after credential of our profession, as more and more employers are demanding its inclusion on resumes of potential employment candidates.
The Project Management Institute, founded in 1969 has over 150,000 members over 67 countries. In order to promulgate the skills of our profession, PMI® has charted many different types of services. The two most significant are the Specific Interest Groups, or SIG's, and the local regional Chapters. Today over 36 SIG's exist, covering a wide range of industrial sectors such as Information Technology, Construction, Automotive, Aerospace, Pharmaceutical, to name just a few. The second way that this global organization reaches its membership is through regional local area Chapters. There are over 200 local area Chapters throughout the world.
The Long Island Chapter of PMI® covers the geographic area of Nassau and Suffolk counties in New York State. Founded in 1999, our Chapter was the first in New York State to become incorporated (June 2000), and has grown in membership to over 850 members, representing more than 50 different Long Island and New York City employers. In addition to being a channel to the global organizations resources and services, locally we provide an opportunity to advance our Long Island area project management practitioners' skills, by providing regular monthly meetings where a forum for networking, mentoring, training and lessons learned in day-to-day project management activities is furnished. Each of the ten meetings a year (September - June) is formatted to include a time period designed to foster networking and to provide a forum for local employment firms and training providers an opportunity to present their services through what's called Career and/or Vendor corners. During these sessions, a featured topic is either presented or discussed via a facilitated panel of local area Subject Matter Experts (SME's). Additionally, the Long Island Chapter provides a forum for its members to sustain their PMP® Certification credential by participation in one or more of the many enhanced service related initiatives. Members are encouraged to become active on our Board of Directors in order to aid in continually bringing new and improved services to our membership, to serve as an instructor in our PMP® self-study group program*, or to become involved in any of our many Chapter marketing initiatives designed to bring continuous project management best-practices and skills to local area industry.
