Vision, Mission & Objectives

The PMI Southern Maryland Chapter will be recognized as a dynamic leading-edge organization comprised of dedicated project management professionals who are committed to serving the business and educational community of Southern Maryland through the advancement of Project Management knowledge.

Military Outreach

Our Military Outreach program is a targeted effort to create awareness of multiple programs that offer reduced costs or authorized use of benefits specifically for active, former, and retired members of the military to support Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification, the credential widely recognized by both business and government for its credibility and value in contributing to an organization’s mission success. PMI SoMD’s interest in Military Outreach is simple - to help our fellow veterans. Our Military Outreach Committee consists of retired Navy and Marine Corps veterans, all PMPs, who have experienced the value of our PMP certifications and want to help others enjoy these benefits by sharing information on programs available to assist veterans in preparation for or during transition, or to enhance current skills sets and qualifications. We look forward to assisting you in pursuing your goals and objectives.
