Message from PMI Philippines Chapter President to Members


September 17, 2020
My fellow PMI Philippines Chapter Members,
In a time with a dearth of good news, I bring good tidings about our Philippines Chapter!

Your Chapter pre-qualified for the 2020 Chapter of the Year Award, under Category II (301 to 1,500 members).  The Philippines Chapter is the only country amongst the 7 countries that is part of Region 15 to pre-qualify for this award.  Region 15 is composed of the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Pakistan. The Chapter had one of the highest member retention and satisfaction ratings.

Reaching the pre-qualification stage for 2020 Chapter of the Year Award is a significant milestone as we approach our 25 years of service in promoting the Project Management profession in the country.
Thus, I enjoin the Board of Trustees in expressing our gratitude to the members and volunteers that have made their invaluable services to the organization all these years.  This milestone would not have been possible, without your contributions. By this, we are encouraged in the service to our organization. Exciting times are up ahead. Be part of it.
