Trouble logging into the chapter website.
New Members - Your membership information is provided to the chapter by PMI Global - usually within 1-3 days of registration.  The Fort Worth Chapter will send you an email with Chapter website logon information the moment we get your membership details from PMI Global.  If, in the meantime, there's an upcoming workshop or other event that you would like to attend, feel free to contact membership for assistance.

 
Questions About Events

I registered for an event (workshop or chapter meeting) and must cancel.
Actually, you can do this yourself! Log-in to the chapter website and select the event. You will see the “cancel” button. Be aware that a refund is not applicable if you do not cancel with sufficient notice. You may view the chapter's cancellation policy. If you feel that you are entitled to a refund, please send an email to finance@fwpmi.org.

I would like a copy of the speaker’s presentation from the last chapter meeting.
How do I get a copy? Most speakers are willing to share their presentations with those who attended the meeting. Please send us an email with your request.

What is the dress code for chapter events?
Lunch and dinner meetings dress code is typically business casual.  This is also true for other events that occur during the work week.  Weekend events are more casual but should still be appropriate for the event type.  Keep in mind that many facilities tend to be cool.  You might want to bring a jacket or sweater with you.
 

Certification / Re-Certification

My PDUs aren't showing up yet on the PMI system.
As a member benefit, the chapter will file your PDU for any chapter event worth 1-2 PDUs.  If you wish to file yourself, all the information you need can be found on your printed receipt. Please note at registration “do not file” when you sign the registration sheet. Typically it will take 1-2 weeks after an event for the PDU to show up on your record. If it hasn’t shown up, feel free to send an email to REPcoordinator@fwpmi.org.

I attended a workshop and need to file my PDUs
 
You will file your PDUs using PMI's Credential Certification Requirements System (CCRS).  Log in to the PMI website and under MyPMI you'll find the link to view or file PDUs.  There are different filing requirements depending on the PDU category.  Please refer to the certification handbook for specific questions.  Click here for instructions on filing PDUs from attending a chapter workshop.
