Vision Statement

A better Southern New England through Project Management

History

Hartford as viewed from Bushnell ParkThe Southern New England Chapter of PMI was established in 1983 to cover all of the Connecticut area as well as Western Massachusetts. In 2013, we celebrated our 30th anniversary and at present we have over 1,800 members. Over 70 percent of our chapter members hold PMP certification.

Coverage

Most of our members work and live in the greater Connecticut area, covering a wide mix of industries and project professions.

Our Chapter dinner meetings are held in Cromwell, CT—about 14 miles south of Hartford. Other meetings, satellite meetings, and roundtables are held in Stamford, Shelton, New London, East Hartford and Springfield, MA. These meetings offer an excellent opportunity for networking and education. Additionally, SNEC-PMI hosts an annual conference in Hartford. This conference, which is considered among the best in New England and the Mid-Atlantic States, offers a full day of seminars and a half-day of specialized four-hour workshops for nearly 800 attendees each year.

Community and Professional Development

 Yale University in New HavenIn response to the local employment atmosphere and needs of our members, SNEC-PMI project teams have created a Job Search information and a Job Alert application to help connect project organizations to available employers. In recent years we've greatly expanded educational and networking opportunities, including offering PMP preparation and PM refresher courses. More than ever, we have a membership that is excited about expanding the dynamics or our organization and eager to participate.

Moving forward, ongoing opportunities to serve on the board of directors or one of several project committees can help to make SNEC-PMI one of the premiere professional organizations locally available.

We invite you to investigate our chapter further. Join us at one of our meetings, or explore  this web site for news and recent and upcoming events. The Membership area will provide examples of available resources.
