Keys to your success in the community - chapter membership!

A chapter’s members are the most important element of a chapter.  Without our members we would not have a chapter.  The sense of community fostered by chapter membership helps everyone grow and keep abreast of the transformation that is happening in the local area and the industry. 

Did you know that the diversity of our membership throughout Central Illinois allows PMI-CIC to offer unique and various programs?  Are you aware that we hold meetings in Peoria, Bloomington and Springfield? 

Regardless of your affinity – metro or rural – we are ready to meet our members where they are.  In the spirit of doing just that, we are heeding the feedback from our members this year we have offered a few non-traditional offerings. In addition to carrying forwarding the PMI at the Park tradition in Peoria, PMI-CIC recently added to following in 2018:

  • March – tour of Destihl brewery in Normal, IL
  • September – an escape room activity rather than a featured speaker

From our survey we heard there is an appetite for more networking events.  I am pleased to announce that Thursday, October 25 we will be hosting such an event.  Following a tour and overview of the local start-up Half Hazard Press, members new and tenured are welcome to join us at Fat Jacks for some informal discussion and networking.  This will be a great opportunity to get to know your local Board Members as well.  Whether you feel you do not know your fellow members or you are a newer member that needs some assistance in getting further connected and engaged, this event will be perfect for you.

For those of you that have friends who are not chapter members, we are excited to share that we participate in the PMI Chapter Guest Pass Program. This program allows PMI members who have never joined our chapter to enjoy free membership for up to one year through this program. As such, we welcome you to refer your friends to join you on this journey to join the PMI-CIC chapter at no charge and enjoy all the benefits that we offer. Qualifying PMI members can receive a free Chapter Guest Pass code and additional details about the program by sending a request to

As the VP of Membership, I look forward to meeting you at our next chapter event.  I also look forward to feedback on what YOU need to make your membership more valuable.  Please contact me at!
