Benefits of Volunteering

What can volunteering at PMI Mile Hi do for your career? 

PMI Mile Hi is known locally to internationally for its strong corps of volunteers and abundance of volunteer opportunities. Many of our members who started as volunteers have progressed to major leadership positions in corporations and to board positions, including  the PMI Global board.

Benefits include:

  • Make key contacts within the project management community & expand your professional network.
  • Take on a challenge to improve your skills and learn new skills in a safe, welcoming environment.
  • Show your passion & commitment for the profession and the community. 
  • Impress hiring managers; they value volunteer experience.
  • Learn new project management skills.
  • Polish skills you already have, such as leadership, speaking, writing and others.
  • Fill gaps in your resume.
  • Earn PDUs! One volunteer hour equals one PDU.
  • Have fun working with inspiring, exhilarating team members.

How much time is required?

Volunteer opportunities range from short-term commitments, such as a few hours a month, to long-term committee lead roles, such as Board and Director positions.

You will find many different opportunities available in each of our many departments. For an example, volunteer roles for PMI Mile Hi’s Rocky Mountain Project Management Symposium range from core team responsibilities that are a year-long commitment to shorter-term positions throughout the year and even “day of” positions that span only two to three hours on event day.
