Project Management Institute of Minnesota Launches New Logo and Rebrand

The five-time winner of the PMI Chapter of the Year Award, PMI MN, streamlines its brand to align with its partnership with PMI Global and The Project Economy

MINNEAPOLIS – Mar. 30, 2020 – The Project Management Institute of Minnesota (PMI MN), the 14th largest of 309 chapters of the Project Management Institute, has introduced a new logo and rebrand. The new logo reflects the chapter’s transformation into navigating change that is inherent to project management professionals’ growth and ongoing adaptability.

“The purple Minnesota icon inlaid with a Loon, our state’s bird, expresses our distinctiveness as a chapter while the new colors symbolize collaboration and determination. Although collectively we share the PMI mission, we will continue to have our own chapter individuality,” said PMI MN President Sara Swanson, PMP®, PMI-ACP®, CSM®. “The transformation in our chapter will continue to thrive in 2020 and beyond by partnering with PMI Global and collaborating with our members and volunteers. Together, we carry our community to prosperity and continued innovation,” Swanson added.

PMI Global and PMI MN have developed a way in which organizations and people are centered around a portfolio of projects to deliver outcomes, designated as “The Project Economy.” It is where people have the skills and capabilities they need to turn ideas into reality and where organizations deliver value to stakeholders through successful completion of projects, delivery of products, and alignment to value streams. The rebrand consists of nine symbols, each representing a quality of The Project Economy: collaboration, determination, change, innovation, teamwork, outcomes, growth, vision, and community.



COVID-19 Updates From the President

COVID-19 Updates From the President

Greetings PMI Minnesota Chapter Members! I hope all of you are healthy and safe. What an extraordinary time to be alive right now; although we are experiencing drastic changes and managing unprecedented challenges, I have seen countless acts of support, love, caring, and giving. Through this experience, we are forced to step out of the box and think innovatively in order to succeed.

I want to thank Doctors, Nurses, Healthcare professionals, first responders, all of those that keep grocery store, childcare, supermarkets, pharmacies, and gas stations running, and all the essential workers for all that you do.  All of you show amazing strength and courage through these uncertain times.  We appreciate all that you do for us!

Please take an action item to review and update your profile information on the website. Since all of our events are moving to virtual for the time being, we will be utilizing your email information from your profile as our mode for communications on events and other Chapter updates. If you do not have a pmi-mn email I recommend you use a personal email instead of work email, so that there is no disruption in our communication with you during COVID-19.

The PMI MN Board and Operations Committee are continuing to provide multiple events for our members. Given the concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, our goal is to host least two virtual events each month. If you have any suggestions for events please let me know!  Visit the PMI MN website for more details on all of our upcoming events. I look forward to seeing each of you virtually!

Moreover, with the health and well-being of our members in mind, the Board has determined our in-person Professional Development Days conference is no longer plausible given the current climate. That being said, I am thrilled to announce our 27th Annual PDD is going virtual! Get the same education, content, and networking from the comfort of your home office! Look out for more details coming soon.

As a Chapter, we will work together to remain flexible and agile. Although we are fighting challenging times right now, I am confident in our resilience as a community and know we will come out of this stronger and more knowledgeable than ever.
