Welcome to the website of the NC Piedmont Triad PMI website. Our vision is to become the single source for embracing the Project Economy in the Triad. Our chapter provides project professionals of all kinds with training, professional development, networking, and job opportunity promotion. Our mission is to advance and promote the practice and profession of project leadership among its chapter members and throughout the Piedmont Triad. Our key pillars for providing value in 2021 will be member enrichment, community engagement, and professional development.

What's new and in the works:

I realize that we will still be challenged to connect virtually for a good portion of the year. However, we are poised to take advantage and move forward in this new world in a way that will bring value to everyone involved. I look forward to connecting with each of you this year. If you have questions, thoughts, concerns, reflections, or ideas, I would welcome your email or phone call.
