The Project Management Institute (PMI) West Virginia - Ohio Valley (WV - OV) Chapter is dedicated to promoting the practice of Project Management as a profession throughout the geographic service area that encompasses most of West Virginia and eastern Ohio and Kentucky. The Chapter seeks to overcome the challenge of its large service area with a relatively sparse population by applying modern telecommunications tools (including Webex and teleconferences) combined with traditional interpersonal networking to offer professional development opportunities to its members and member prospects.
What We Offer:
The Chapter regularly hosts program meetings via Webex. These meetings feature a brief Chapter status update, and then offer a speaker with a prepared presentation on a topic of interest to project management practicioners, with relevance to the PMI Talent Triangle. There is no charge for most program meetings. Check the Calendar on the Chapter portal for the next program meeting, and please consider volunteering to present a topic of interest.
Each fall, a dinner meeting in Charleston and a separate meeting in Fairmont offer the chance for more extended networking. Typically hosted at a restaurant or banquet facility, these meetings are not delivered via telecon, but provide a more extended opportunity to meet and greet your peers in the project management profession. We typically seek "case study" presentations describing how the application of project management techniques and tools resulted in the successful completion of major projects for member organizations. A nominal fee is charged to cover costs of the meal and incidental expenses.
