Mission

Teach and facilitate Networking among PMINJ members to support their personal and professional growth, engage career coaches and experts to provide guidance in navigating the job-search process, and promote exposure to career and business opportunities.

Scope

The PMINJ Career Networking Local Community of Interest (CNL) was established to facilitate business and career networking among PMINJ members. The CNL's goals are to provide additional networking opportunities to PMINJ members in the form of networking events, educational forums, and professional development opportunities. A structured networking event is hosted each month, with elements of speakers, panel discussions, job announcements, networking sessions and interactive workshops.

The CNL provides these services for interested PMINJ Project Managers:

  • Career Networking session prior to monthly Chapter meetings
  • Career Networking email list enabling notices and opportunities to be sent to CNL members
  • Reference information about other networking resources and previous speaker sessions

Monthly Sessions

Career Networking Sessions are held before monthly PMINJ Chapter meetings, at the Main Meeting location. Registration begins at 5:15pm; the Networking event opens at 5:30pm and closes at 6:30pm, giving members time to enjoy dinner before the main meeting. No separate pre-registration is needed - just be sure to register for the chapter meeting, arrive a bit earlier, and join us.

This season, CNL is planning to host speaker presentations in September, November, February, April and May, and facilitated networking sessions in October, January, March and June.

Handouts from the meetings (when available) can be downloaded from the PMINJ chapter website. Go to Events > Archive, and find the meeting of interest to download the handouts.
