Community Service


The Minnesota Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI MN®) Chapter That Cares team has created several programs to allow chapter members to share their gifts with the less fortunate in the community.

Community Project Coaching

In order to allow its members to use their project management skills in support of the community, the chapter has a created the Community Project Coaching Program. The objective of this program is to provide PMI MN members with opportunities to serve the community by volunteering to coach inexperienced project managers in community organizations. Volunteers in the program receive some coaching skills training before they are paired with a project manager in a community organization.

Ana Alvarez-Holmberg Scholarship

In September, 2006 PMI MN and the Twin Cities chapter of the American Society of Training and Development (ASTD-TCC) initiated the Ana Alvarez-Holmberg Scholarship to honor the memory and service of Ana Alvarez-Holmberg -- a dynamic local leader in project management and corporate training, This program awards annual professional development scholarships to persons nominated by the membership who best exemplify her professional and personal attributes.

Project of the Year Award

The Project of the Year awards program annually recognizes individuals, groups and organizations for having effectively applied project management. PMI® is the leading advocate for the project management profession globally. Founded in 1969, its Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential is recognized as the only globally transferable credential in project management.

The PMI MN Project of the Year Award recognizes the accomplishments of a project -- from the five-state area (MN, ND, and SD) -- and its project team for superior performance and for the execution of exemplary project management principles and techniques.
