Project Management in Government Practice Group

The Government Practice Group is a local interest group of the PMI Central Virginia Chapter. The Government Practice Group  has three goals:

  • To promote low-cost project management continuing education among government employees and contractors. The group will also be forming study groups and identifying mentors to assist aspiring project managers in preparing for PMP certification testing.
  • To educate participants on the unique aspects of managing government projects.
  • To foster collaboration among government Project Managers, sharing best practices and lessons learned.

Monthly meetings will occur on the 2nd Thursday of each month except in August and December. Meetings may occur at 7:30 am or late in the day, depending on the availability of speakers and locations. The venue will rotate among state and local government offices. Participation in Government Practice Group  activities is open to anyone interested in project management in government including state, local, federal employees and government contractors. Depending on the program, participants will have an opportunity to earn 1-1½ PDUs each event.

Please see the calendar of events for details and registration for upcoming meetings.
