All you need is a passion for project management and verification of full time enrollment in a degree-granting program.

PMI Hardship Provision

In these current economic times, we recognize that some of our members will find themselves in changed financial circumstances. To that end, PMI would like to remind members about its hardship provision that is available to qualifying members in good standing.

PMI’s hardship provision is available to any member who becomes unemployed. In order to qualify, a member must be in good standing and must have paid dues for at least three previous continuous years.

Under this provision, a member is granted a waiver for one year of PMI membership dues and one year of dues for membership in any one chapter of which the applicant was a member the previous year. The hardship provision may be granted for a maximum of two years for each member.

Details about this program are located on the back of the renewal invoice. To apply for a hardship provision, please send an e-mail and explain the nature of your hardship. Please be sure to include a copy of your renewal invoice (if possible).

We encourage members to renew their membership dues prior to their expiration date.  If a member’s membership has expired for more than 10 months, we would not be able to renew their membership under the Hardship Provision.

Please remember that any incorrect or untrue statements made by a member are in violation of the Project Management Institute Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and may lead to the initiation of an ethics complaint.

If you have questions or need further assistance, please feel free to contact us.
