PMI Willamette Valley Chapter

2021 Chapter Elections

The Election Process:

Our annual election for Chapter Leadership positions occurs in advance of our annual Strategic Planning Summit. This provides newly elected Leaders to participate in the Project and Program planning for the next budget year. 

Each Chapter Leadership position statement speaks to the responsibilities and authorities of that position. Being a PMI Chapter, each Volunteer Leader is held to the PMI code of ethics, confidentiality and conflict of interest policies.

The duly elected Volunteer Leaders will serve a two year term from January 2021 – December 2022. Our Bylaws limit Chapter Leadership positions to three consecutive terms.

We will be utilizing the PMI Global election application “Votenet”. An electronic voting system that verifies your membership in good standing, tallies your vote and provides the results to the Chapter Election Official.

The election will be in October 2020. So... start considering if you want to be Chapter or Branch Leader.
