Academic Outreach Programs
Part of our chapter's mission is to be a "respected community contributor by promoting awareness, effectiveness and value to local practitioners and organizations." As such we have developed a comprehensive Outreach program which has several teams that focus on specific target areas. The purpose of these teams is to promote the FWPMI chapter within our community and provide opportunities to engage with local companies, universities, schools and non-profits.
Academic Outreach team
This team strives to advance the profession and practice of project management by developing relationships with local academic institutions (middle school, high school, colleges and universities). They create awareness of PMI Education Foundation and academic standards and work with these institutions to create demand for project management programs, clubs and curricula.
Current Year Initiatives:
* Develop student events at local universities and colleges and provide information on PMI certifications and the Fort Worth chapter
* Work with Future Cities to include project management as criteria for annual events
* Attend the Texas Work Force Commission's Career Fair for youth
* Represent the chapter at other opportunities that come up through out the year
