WHY SHOULD YOU ATTEND?

The 2020 PMI-CVCC Professional Development Day – The Project Management Blueprint for Success - includes 2 keynotes and 4 engaging sessions designed to maximize professional development for you and your entire team. The program enables a personalized and authentic learning environment and promotes peer-to-peer sharing and networking. The content of this conference is designed to meet your needs, from beginners seeking guidance to experienced veterans wanting that extra edge.

TO NETWORK LIKE CRAZY

The connections you make can benefit your career or company in big ways. It’s an easy way to build your professional network—mix and mingle, form new relationships, and strengthen existing ones.

TO DEVELOP YOURSELF AND EARN PDUs

Your career development is a journey not a destination. You can develop your career in a more consistent, actionable, and meaningful way by immersing yourself in our project management seminars and workshops. As an added benefit, you can earn up to 6.5 targeted PDUs toward your Continuing Certification Requirements (CCRs).

TO GET IDEAS AND FEEDBACK

You can gain insights and perspective into your own projects from others who have experienced similar situations or offer your wisdom and experiences with others providing hints and tips to help them avoid missteps in their projects or careers.

TO KEEP LEARNING

No matter how experienced you are in your career, or even life, everyone can always learn more. Start learning and developing new employer-desired skills giving you a competitive advantage like no other. This conference will provide you with the knowledge to promote yourself as the answer to what companies are seeking.

TO HAVE FUN

Being in business should be rewarding and fun. All work and no play can get old fast. Attending this conference will add a layer of enjoyment to managing your career growth by mixing a social aspect into your learning and industry branding efforts.

TO STAY RELEVANT

Continue ongoing professional development plans that provide the prescribed direction you need to stay relevant in a continually evolving global business environment..
