Military Outreach

The Pikes Peak region is home to Fort Carson, Peterson Air Force Base (AFB), Schiever AFB, Cheyenne Mountain Air Station (CMAS), and the US Air Force Academy.  Additionally, these bases are home to key commands such as Air Force Space Command (AFSPC), the Army’s Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC) / Army Strategic Command (ARSTRAT), the Missile Defense Agency’s (MDA) Missile Defense Integration Operations Center (MDIOC), and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) / Northern Command (NORTHCOM).

Over the last decade, these installations and commands have begun to reinforce the value of PMI processes and certification for personnel who fill project and program management roles and have highly encouraged PMI certification in addition to Defense Acquisition Workforce Improvement Act (DAWIA) certifications.

The Pikes Peak Regional, Colorado Chapter (PPRC) therefore established the Military Outreach Committee to meet the needs of these installations and commands as well as assisting current and aspiring military project management professionals.
