FAQs - Volunteering

Do I have to be a PMI or PMI South Chapter Member to be able to volunteer?

No!  Different types of volunteering opportunities are available to both members and non-members.  We celebrate the diversity of our volunteering teams, and welcome all who have a passion and desire to contribute to the project environment and our communities.  Explore the various opportunities on our Get Involved page. 

FAQs - Certifications and Registrations

Can my PMI Certification be verified?

A person's PMI certification status can usually be verified through the online Certification Registry, here

Since certification holders may choose not to be listed in the online Certification Registry, they may hold a PMI certification even if their names do not appear within the listing. Therefore, if you are unable to locate an individual’s name and credential(s) in the registry, you may request their credentials from the Project Management Institute, with the relevant signed authorization documentation.
