Every effort is made to keep the website available. However, periodically the system does need maintenance. Please contact the Director of Web Operations (Dir_Weboperations@pmipprc.org) or VP of Communications (VP_Communications@pmipprc.org) for assistance.


I registered for an event (workshop or chapter meeting) and must cancel.

You will see your order history. Click on the event Order Details for the registration you wish the cancel. The Order Detail will open. Click the Cancel Order button, located at the bottom of the Order Detail. You will be prompted to confirm your cancellation, please click Yes. That’s it, you are done.

How can I claim PDUs I've earned at Chapter events?
Instructions for claiming PDUs at the PMI site are here.

I attended a chapter meeting and have PMI certification. I checked on the PMI website and my PDU is not showing.
PDUs for chapter meetings are reported to PMI for all chapter members who attend and sign-in for the chapter meeting. The PDUs are normally reported within one week following the event. Please contact the VP of Membership if you see a discrepancy. If you’re not a chapter member, you’ll need to register your PDU manually via a PMI sponsored website or app. 

I attended a workshop and need to log my PDUs.
Each project management certificate recipient is ultimately responsible for ensuring that their PDUs are reported to PMI correctly and in a timely manner.  Recent changes to the PMI.org website have simplified this process and it is entirely web-based.  For each Chapter event you attend, you will receive the necessary documentation and information required to complete this process.  You should keep this in your PDU file for a minimum of one year after a recertification cycle end for audit purposes.  Specific questions can be answered from the Credential Handbook, or contact PMI Global Operations Center; email: customercare@pmi.org or phone: 610-356-4600.

I am PMI certified and need to renew my credentials

Renewing your certification just got a whole lot easier! Certification renewal is quick and easy by using the convenient online option. As you log your PDUs for workshops and chapter meetings, among other qualifying events during your recertification cycle, PMI keeps a transcript total of your PDUs. When you have reached your qualifying benchmark, PMI provides notification that you are eligible to renew. Instead of filling out a paper renewal form, PMI offers an online option that is so simple and easy to use that renewal can be completed in just minutes.

I would like a copy of the speaker’s presentation from the last chapter meeting. 
How do I get a copy? While not every presentation is available due to presenter restrictions, most speakers are willing to share their presentations with those who attended the meeting. Please send an email to VP_Programs@pmipprc.org with your request. Please note that access to the presentation archive is a "members only" benefit.

What is the "Member Directory"? 
The Member Directory is a "members only" page. A member can be located by name in the Member Directory under Member Area menu option. When you locate the person you are searching for, you can view the contact information. Individual members may opt-out (or back in) of the directory and specify the information that is included in the member directory via their member profile. 

PayPal says my email address or credit card are already on a PayPal account. 
In order to pay a registration fee for a chapter event with a credit card or email that is associated with a PayPal account, you need to log into the PayPal account. To pay the registration fee without logging into PayPal, you must use both a different credit card and email address. This is a PayPal security feature to prevent unauthorized use of PayPal account information, which while you can disable the security option (on your PayPal account), doing so is not recommended.
