On Friday, Sept 14, 2018, the PMI Bluegrass chapter is hosting a workshop for non-profit agencies that server the Lexington area.

  • The event will be focused on the needs of local non-profit organizations by sharing an introduction to Project Management as a valuable methodology that can enable organizational efficiency and effectiveness to better fulfill the organization's mission.

  • We have invited agencies in the Bluegrass area, representing the diverse services and interests in the region
  • We are charging the agency participants a nominal fee per person but this fee does not cover the costs of the event
