ALL UPCOMING IN-PERSON EVENTS ARE
SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
To Our PMI Community,
Your safety is our first priority in our current environment. In keeping with the guidelines listed by the CDC regarding social distancing, the PMI Olympia Chapter is canceling all physical events for the near future. This is to support the national effort to contain and mitigate the virus.
Your PMI Olympia Board of Directors are in the process of planning virtual chapter meetings for April, May, and June, and will reassess the in-person meeting for the start of the new chapter year beginning in September based on state and national guidelines. We recognize this isn’t ideal but we are committed to ensuring your continued access to quality programs and networking from your PMI Olympia Chapter. We will post the virtual chapter meetings and registration once we have completed all the logistics. To show our appreciation for our PMI community, the April virtual chapter meeting will be FREE!
For those who have already registered for the April meeting, please contact Paypal for a refund.
Please check www.pmiolympia.org chapter website for more information on the April meeting registration and updates for the May and June meetings.
In the meantime, we ask our PM community and families to follow the guidelines set out by the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html, and join us in social distancing during this period of “flattening the curve.”
Thank you for your patience and understanding,
PMI Olympia Chapter

PMP exam change postponed until 2 January 2021
PMI is committed to the safety and well-being of our global community, which is why we have a designated Crisis Task Force that is continuously monitoring the situation arising from coronavirus (COVID-19) daily.
We are taking additional steps to make this time easier for our community. As a result, we have decided to extend access to the current PMP exam until 31 December 2020, and postpone the launch of the new exam until 2 January 2021.This postponement will provide candidates with additional time and access to training resources to help them prepare and sit for the exam confidently.
Please bookmark this page, and check back for any updates regarding the exam change.
If you have already scheduled your exam, or plan to do so in the near future, please consult our COVID-19 page for the latest updates and guidance. If you have additional questions or need assistance, please contact Customer Care.
IIL is offering free registration to a self-paced, online course on Virtual Agile Teams − to help you and your teams during this time of working differently.
PMI policy requires each Chapter to update or resubmit the Bylaws every 3 years. PMI will manage the voting process using VoteNet. VoteNet assigns a password to each Chapter member and will send an email with the link and password to cast your vote.

Military Membership Program
The PMI Olympia Chapter has an active Military Outreach Program. Justin Ramsey is our Military Liaison. The program's primary goal is to support active duty and ex-military members who are interested in Project Management, encouraging them to get involved with PMI and get certified. A second goal is to support veterans where possible, using the team’s knowledge and experience where appropriate.
