PMI COVID-19 Hardship Provision

In the current stressful times of COVID-19, PMI Global would like to remind its members of the financial assistance under the PMI Hardship Provision.

The PMI Hardship Provision is available to any PMI member whose financial condition has changed drastically and sufficiently so that a member would have difficulty renewing their membership. Under this provision, a member is granted a waiver for one year of PMI membership dues and one year of dues for membership to their local PMI Chapter.

For consideration

  • A member must be in good standing for at least 3 previous years.
  • To apply, send a letter explaining the nature of the hardship, along with your PMI invoice, to the attention of PMI’s Membership Processing prior to your membership expiration date, to the address below.

Please remember that any incorrect or untrue statements made by a member are in violation of the Project Management Institute Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and may lead to the initiation of an ethics complaint in accordance with the PMI Ethics Case Procedures. For more information on this PMI COVID-19 Hardship Provision contact PMI Global by clicking here.  

Chat, phone, email, and address are available on this page. Please note they are currently experiencing a surge in contact volumes.

PMI COVID-19 Resources

COVID-19 Resource Hub

You are likely finding yourself working virtually and spending more time at home. There are still opportunities to bring the world closer and grow, even while social distancing.

We’ve compiled a variety of free resources, virtual events and even a sneak peek of new digital offerings to help you connect with the global community, build skills and prepare to advance in a post-COVID-19 world. Please share these resources, and check back often for updates.  Click here to see all resources.

Digital Offerings from PMI – New Resources for Your Toolbox in the Months Ahead

Submitted by: Sunil Prashara, President & CEO at Project Management Institute

Every organization in the world is currently confronting the challenge of moving forward amidst the COVID-19 pandemic while balancing the safety and well-being of their teams. In just a short period of time, we have been called upon to make rapid changes, sacrifices and adjust the ways that we work and live. Many of these new working practices are going to stick, i.e. they won’t be temporary, and I’m pretty sure our collective recovery from COVID-19 will mean how we work in the future will be very different.  READ MORE
