As part of this commitment, I want to remind you that PMI has instituted a Membership Hardship Policy - Unemployed Members with 3 years of good standing membership are qualified for membership hardship grant by calling PMI Customer Care. PMI also offers many additional resources that can be found later in this newsletter.

Earning PDUs is a necessary aspect of maintaining your PMI certification. To that end, we have instituted a monthly Webinar Spotlight to direct you to webinar content that we think is specifically relevant to the Space Coast and that you can access free of charge.
Have you ever been faced with a complex, multi-dimensional project and pressure from multiple stakeholders? Is this the normal course of business in your organization? Are you at wits end? Have you ever wondered if you are alone? If so, this webinar is for you. In this session, we will review some of the tools and resources that PMI has to help in ethical decision-making, self-awareness, and review some specific scenarios. Part of a healthy ethical environment on a project is being able to talk about it openly. Let’s discuss and have some fun along the way.
