PMI Award for Chapter

Like every year, The PMI Global Chapter Awards program received many outstanding applications from a record number of 34 Chapters across the globe. Upon review and evaluation of all submitted applications, the Bangalore Chapter's excellent programs and member benefits has been recognized with a “Recognition of Excellence Award” by the esteemed jury members from PMI Headquarters.

The award ceremony was held on Oct 25, 2013 in Leadership Institute Meeting (LIM) in New Orleans, LA, USA that had representation of about 1000 chapter leaders from over 200+ chapters across the globe. Mr. Vijay Paul, Director-Volunteering and Mr. Sumanth Padival, VP-Technology represented Bangalore Chapter
in the Leadership Institute Meeting. Mr. Vijay Paul received the award from Ms. Deanna Landers, Chair – PMI Board of Directors and Mr. Mark Langley, President and CEO, PMI.
The Bangalore Chapter was recognized for this award in Category IV standing shoulder to shoulder among long standing Chapters like Washington, Houston, New York and Japan Chapters that have been existing for much long before Bangalore Chapter. The award had been given to recognise Chapters' contribution towards member services, successful annual conference, publications and outreach to students community. This could not have come at a better time when the Chapter is completing 15 years since it started operations on 1998.

Needless to say this was possible due to unflinching support and participation from our members, volunteers, speakers, Advisory Board members, corporate organisations and vendor partners. With their help Chapter has had achieved many milestones in the past in the areas of member services, education, academics and social responsibility in line with its vision of promoting the cause for advancement of project management in the region.
