About the Program

For many people, the 2008 recession and anemic recovery from it has put strains on their personal/family financial situation. As PMPs, you have devoted a great deal of time and effort to mastering project management principles. As Bill’s presentation will show, these principles are very applicable to managing your personal/family finances. Why not get double benefit from your investment in project management knowledge and apply them to your personal life as well as in your career?

About the PM Industry Insights

PM Industry Insights is PMIWDC's workshop series that addresses the practical aspects of Project Management.

These sessions are to provide you with insights on what is going on in the local industry so you can learn from it. This discussion-based session will include presentations on tools, industry panels, interviews with industry experts, workshops, etc. The target presenters will be individuals from PMO’s, university professors, consultants, etc. 

Both PM Industry Insights and the monthly dinner meeting are worth 1 Professional Development Unit (PDU) each to certified PMPs. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
