Do you know how many American veterans are members of PMI? No..! Neither do PMI, or the Houston PMI chapter. Do you also know that many employers in Houston, as well as seeking out those with PMI certifications are also military friendly?

Throughout the country many PMI chapters have a successful Military Outreach Program. The recent creation of the Houston Chapter Military Outreach Program would like to follow these programs in helping our veterans. To understand who we have in our ranks, and understand our veterans needs, we need to hear from you. If you are interested, we are looking to tap into our members who are veterans and their unique attributes, extensive experience and network, so we can expand rapidly and help those in the chapter and those currently transitioning into civilian life. We have a mission, that we need help in executing.

Thus we wish to reach out to our current Houston chapter members who are veterans, to find out who is within our mists. If you’re a veteran, we would like to hear from you and understand what you would like to see from us. If you wish you can become Military Outreach Mentor and give back to those who have a need.

If you are already a member of PMI Global, but not the Houston chapter, then ask about our Military Chapter Guest Pass Program to find out if you qualify for a free first year membership to PMI Houston Chapter.

Program Purpose

We are a mentoring and assistance program to support our Military, be it; Active Duty, Veterans, Reservists, National Guard, Military spouse and those in transition or who have transited from military to civilian life. With a large number of veterans residing in the Houston Metro area, coupled with a Reduction in Forces (RIF) over the coming years, the number of military members looking for work upon separation will increase.
