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.



Information Regarding the Annual Business Meeting

As I previously communicated, with the restrictions on in-person meetings due to COVD-19, the Board had to make the decision to postpone our annual business meeting that had been scheduled for March 23rd. 

This meeting is the Board’s opportunity to connect with fellow members, and provide an overview of our accomplishments and lessons learned from the past year. During this meeting the membership also hears about the budget outcome from the previous year, and learns about the current year’s budget and goals of the Chapter. This meeting is an opportunity for you, as a member, to share ideas, ask questions and learn about the state of the Chapter.  For this reason, the PMI Board of Directors believe the meeting is most beneficial to both the Board and members as an in-person meeting. 

We look forward to rescheduling this important meeting once we are able to meet again in-person. We have a lot of accomplishments from the past year we would like to share, and several exciting plans for the upcoming year.  Look for our April newsletter where we will provide a sneak peek of what 2019 looked like for the Chapter, and what we envision for 2020. 

Please contact me directly with any questions or concerns. We are grateful for the ongoing support of our members and appreciate your patience.

A Message from the PMI MN President: PMI MN Chapter Plans Related to COVID-19

A Message from the PMI-MN Chapter President: COVID-19 Decisions (03-17-20)

PMI-MN Members,

As a follow up to my communication sent on March 13th, 2020, I want to provide an update on the Board decision for addressing upcoming in-person Chapter meetings and events.

Our priority is to protect the health and wellbeing of our members; the PMI-MN and PMI Global staff continue to pay close attention to new developments with ​COVID-19. They are monitoring local, national and international public health departments and agencies for the latest updates and guidance.

After careful consideration, we have determined it is necessary for us to take the following actions:

  • Due to the current state of the economy, PMI-MN will be assessing all in-person meetings and events for the next 8 weeks to determine the best course of action for each meeting and event
  • Our Operations Leadership team is reviewing the Chapter’s virtual options
  • Each member that is registered for these upcoming events will be contacted by the PMI-MN Chapter in-regards to next steps

We will continue to heed the advice of public health experts and provide regular updates to our members. Please contact me directly with any questions or concerns. We are grateful for the ongoing support of our members and appreciate your patience.


Sara Swanson, PMP®, PMI-ACP®, CSM®

PMI-MN President, CEO
