What is a Multi-Chapter Meeting/Webinar? 

This is a program formed in 2023 in collaboration with PMI-LA and other chapters to pool resources and share the burden of putting on virtual PDU webinars. As of this writing, PMI-HI plans to add this to our existing programing, not replace our usual luncheon event.  For more about Multi-Chapter Meetings/Webinars, click the read more.
