Corban University, in partnership with PMIWV, is sponsoring a Project Management Summit on April 9, 2019, Tuesday evening, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. This Ted-Talk format includes PMIWV speakers on introduction to project management, how they entered into the project management field, and what recommendations they may have for college students wanting to enter the project management field. While this summit is for students and faculty of Corban University, it is open to PMIWV members who desire to participate in one-on-one conversations with Corban students. This event is free.
Mark your calendar for October 18, 2019 -- planning for the 2019 conference is under way!

"Just wanted to thank you for the opportunity to be in class (2018 Spring CAPM/PMP Exam Preparatory Class). I successfully completed my certification a few weeks ago and I believe it was, in part, from attending the sessions!"
