New PMI Member Benefits

PMI Visa Card

PMI Visa CardRemember the American Express slogan, Membership Has Its Privileges?

Well, PMI is working on providing more membership privileges…and benefits for your $129 a year membership dues.

What would you think about getting your medical insurance or next credit card through PMI?

Personally, I would be happy with PMI discount codes for travel expenses like hotel and airlines or consumables like Sharpies and Post-It notes.  Check out what PMI is offering!  I may actually look into the Pet Insurance.

These new member benefits initially will be available to PMI members in the United States. Members can learn more about these programs by visiting the Benefits of Membership page on PMI.org.

PMI Agile CoP Strategic Planning Day 1

1 Comment

The first full day of the PMI Agile Community of Practice strategic planning session just wrapped up.  It’s been an amazing day.  We discussed how we could help Project Management Practitioners, PMI Members, CoP Volunteers, and Agile Leaders. Topics ranged from increasing awareness of Agile, to the PMI-ACP, and a PMI-ACP Glossary.

Though we all come from all over the country, different organizations, and different backgrounds, we have at least one thing in common.  We all have a passion for Agile.

Because the PMI-ACP certification is transitioning to an operational stage, myself and a few others focused deeply on what we wanted to see happen in 2012.  First, you’ll be seeing the PMI-ACP v1.1 coming January 31.  You should see PMI-ACP v1.2 out the end of the second quarter.  I’ll save the real good stuff for subsequent posts.  Until then, goodnight from Miami.
