PMI SWO Chapter Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

PMI SWO Chapter Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update - Virtual Only 2021

The Chapter is concerned and aware of the risks of the Coronavirus Pandemic, locally & around the globe. The following updates have been made to this notice:

  • 11 Aug 2021 - All PMI Southwest Ohio activities and events will be held virtually through remainder of 2021, and will launch an "In-person Events Committee" to provide guidance & policies in late Q4-2021 for returning in-person for early Q1-2022. Please sign up here to join the In-Person Events Committee! It has and still is a difficult & complex situation to navigate, and this was not taken lightly; it was decided by PMI SWO Board vote from information gathered in PMI public member forums, PMI public member survey, 25 July 2021 Guidance for PMI GHQ, local guidance across the Tri-state, local & regional employer guidance, and overall governing & advising bodies globally. 
  • 20 April 2021 - All PMI Southwest Ohio activities and events will only be held virtually through October 2021, where we will revisit the risks in August 2021 for impact & options for the rest of Q4 2021.
  • 01 June 2020 - All PMI Southwest Ohio activities and events will only be held virtually through Q1-2021, where we will revisit the risks & environment in April. 
  • 18 April 2020 - All PMI Southwest Ohio activities and events will only be held virtually as the chapter is concerned and aware of the risks of the coronavirus. As a result, we have canceled all face-to-face events until June.

Because the situation continues to rapidly evolve, we may make further adjustments to our scheduled events and we will continue to communicate those changes as soon as possible on our website.
