Volunteering FAQs?

The PMI Zimbabwe Chapter is a non-profit organization run completely by volunteer members. All the benefits that we enjoy are made possible by volunteer members. Come let’s do great things together.

How Much Time is Required?

Volunteer opportunities range from short-term commitments of a few hours to long-term team lead roles. For example, the volunteers at the registration tables before the Chapter meetings are on duty for a few hours, while members of the Board of Directors make a two-year-long commitment. The Chapter has many opportunities available. Whatever your skills or schedule, we’ll find a way to use your talents!


Can I Earn PDUs?

Yes! PMPs can obtain PDUs while volunteering. PMPs are responsible for reporting volunteer activities to PMI. For more information on obtaining PDUs through volunteering, please refer to the Project Management Institute PMP credentials handbook.



 

How do I get Started?

Apply for open positions using VRMS at pmi.org

PMI’s Volunteer Relationship Management System (VRMS) is a searchable, centralized and integrated volunteer web application and database that is available to current and prospective volunteers. The VRMS integrates with PMI’s membership database and improves the process and user experience for volunteers to interact with PMI. VRMS is a great tool that lets you create a volunteer profile and search for opportunities that will enhance your leadership skills and build your professional network in addition to earning PDUs. You can search for opportunities to volunteer at our local PMI Chapter or virtually worldwide using VRMS.

PMI Zimbabwe Chapter uses VRMS to help our volunteers:
