  8. Is there financial assistance for membership dues?

    A.  Yes - Individuals who have been members in good standing for at least three consecutive years can request a hardship provision if their financial circumstances have changed in such a way that it makes it difficult to renew their membership. The hardship provision, if granted, waives membership dues for PMI membership and membership in any two PMI chapters in which the individual was already a member in the previous year for one year. The hardship provision can only be granted a maximum of two years. To apply for a hardship provision, the member must send a copy of the membership renewal invoice and signed letter explaining the hardship to Membership Processing before the membership expiration date. Please send the request via mail (Project Management Institute, Attn: Membership Processing, 14 Campus Blvd, Newtown Square, PA 19073-3299) or by fax at 1-610-819-0746. Per PMI Global, “any incorrect or untrue statements made by a member are in violation of the Project Management Institute Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and may lead to the initiation of an ethic complaint in accordance with the PMI Ethics Case Procedures.” Please contact PMI Global directly with any questions you may have about the hardship provision.

  9. Are other discounts available to students for PMI-MN events?

    A.  With proper student identification, students can attend selected PMI-MN functions at a reduced rate. In addition, space permitting, students may attend a PMI-MN dinner meeting for free as a speaker-only attendee – i.e. no meal will be served to the student.

  10. Why is there a delay between the time I sign up at PMI Global and the time PMI MN recognizes me as a member?

    A.   Membership information is handled by PMI Global, not the local chapter. While members can join at any time during the month, information received by the Chapter may be delayed. Due to this delay, the chapter recognizes new and renewing members the month following their join or renew date

  3. Is attendance at PMI Chapter meetings recorded and automatically sent to PMI Global for PDU credit? I ask because I don't see some meetings that I have attended.

    A.   Yes, PMI-MN automatically logs PDU credit at PMI-MN monthly Chapter Dinner and Breakfast meetings. PMI-MN does not automatically log and report attendee and PDU credit for any other PMI-MN offerings such as Outreach meetings, educational seminars, webinars, PrCs, or PDD sessions.
    PMI-MN submits attendee and PDU information to PMI Global about 2 weeks after the Dinner or Breakfast meeting. However, PMI-MN cannot guarantee how long it will take for PMI Global to post the information online. If after two-three weeks you still do not see your credit, please contact
