PMI Black Tie Event
A GREAT Opportunity to give back to the future of Project Management!
The Community and Academic outreach teams are joining forces to plan a Black Tie Event in the early part of 2014this where all proceeds benefit the 2014 Intercollegiate Project Management Triathlon (Duquesne University Sponsored Jeopardy Style Student Competition on the PMBOK). We are working with the Duquesne University Student Project Management Association (PMA) to plan this event. We have identified sponsors from PMI and Duquesne, a Project Manager , Controller and several mentors from PMI. 29 eager students have expressed interest in participating on this project team! The benefits of this event/mentoring include:
- Give the students the opportunity to apply their learning’s from their PM classes while working side by side with top Project Management Professionals in the Pittsburgh area.
- Give the students some real experience they can list on their resumes and hours of PM experience that can be used to sit for the CAPM or PMP exams one day.
- Plan a nice evening for PMI chapter members and their spouses to enjoy.
- Give the students the opportunity to raise significant funding for the 2014 IPMT Competition.
- Give PMI members the chance to earn up to 45 PDUs for mentoring, and the overall sense of satisfaction that comes with being involved in such a great cause!
- Improve our future generation of project managers in the Pittsburgh area; facilitate networking between grads and employers to identify great entry level candidates.
