The Olympia PMI Chapter was founded in 2004 with the vision statement:
"Our communities’ project managers, organizations, and their clients value the Olympia Chapter of PMI because it brings us project professionals together to build relationships and enhance their skills, experience, and project results."
The Olympia PMI Chapter has florished over the years to over 200 members. Through the volunteer efforts of many members this chapter has seen steady growth. Many of the original members are still involved today. Our chapter strives to bring pertinent topics for presentation at the monthly dinner meetings and provide our members with an opportunity to network with fellow professionals. The Chapter also conducts two PMP Prep Courses thoughout the year with an almost perfect record of success in students attaining their PMP certification.
