Maintaining Your Certification 

Attending monthly chapter meetings is one way you can earn Professional Development Units (PDU) to maintain your PMP certification.  You can earn 1 unit for each chapter meeting you attend, and  5 units for being the guest speaker (45 minute presentation required).   Check out the "PDUs for Busy PMPs" below.

Reporting PDUs 

The VP Membership will email an "attendance certificate" to all members who attended the  chapter meeting for their records.  You are responsible for reporting your own PDUs.   Click here for instructions.
