Become a Sponsors or Partner

The Central Florida Chapter of PMI is always looking to connect with other Orlando business and community groups through our various Sponsor and Partner opportunities. We view these opportunities as a long term relationship building exercise and therefore we do not accept one-off advertisement requests. As an event Sponsor or Partner, your organization will have the chance to make our 1100+ members, who represent numerous companies in the Orlando metropolitan area, aware of your company, your products and services. Thank you for considering the Central Florida Chapter of PMI when making a decision about Sponsoring or Partnering with our Chapter.

ABOUT US:

The mission of the PMI Central Florida Chapter, Inc. is to host a variety of events that allow professional project managers to promote the core values of the Project Management Institute through networking with other project managers, sharing project experiences, providing and receiving training, and supporting project managers in their certification efforts. As a not-for-profit membership organization, the PMI Central Florida Chapter relies heavily on dedicated members and vendor relationships for financial support. The Chapter, having served the Central Florida area for well over twelve years, is seeing significant growth and is increasing its popularity among local project professionals.

The Chapter is preparing to launch a number of new activities for members, many of which we expect will become ongoing monthly events. The purpose of providing these additional Chapter events is to support networking of course, but they will also provide members information about the latest Project Management process initiatives, tools and techniques and provide skills training through a variety of educational offerings. Our members tend to take advantage of it all. If your company has an educational offering for our members to purchase then a more traditional Sponsor financial support arrangement is for you. This is an exceptional opportunity to get your message and product offerings in front of this attentive and leading edge audience. If your product set does not necessarily involve a direct sale to our Project Manager members, but you would be willing to enter into a longer term relationship with our Chapter, and be more involved in helping us to develop and then host events for our members then a Partnering arrangement would probably be a better fit for you.

Our Chapter is also developing an active community outreach effort designed to connect the Chapter with more Orlando private businesses, educational institutions, non-profits and governmental agencies. We expect our Sponsors and Partners to also benefit from these efforts to include these firms and agencies that employ the skilled Project Managers we cater to into our PM network. This fuels both our growth and your opportunities to work with us.
