The community chapter meetings are designed to enable flexibility for more participation across the broad Charlotte geographical area; to facilitate networking and peer mentoring in a smaller setting; and to allow participation in periodic community projects (local small/medium businesses, high schools/colleges, non-profit organizations, etc.) that are better adapted for smaller groups. Metro Charlotte community meetings currently cover the following areas: Ballantyne, Concord, Fort Mill, Gaston, Huntersville, Mooresville, and West Lake Norman.
Because the footprint of our chapter stretches very far outside the Charlotte metro area, we will also have community meetings in some of these areas. These meetings will be set up like a traditional chapter meeting on a much smaller scale in the larger cities within our footprint. Currently, this type of community meeting covers the following areas: Asheville, Fayetteville, Hickory, and Wilmington.
Please refer to the Calendar of Events for the date, time, location, and registration of the community meetings. Members and non-members are welcome to attend any meeting at any location.
Registered, But Now Unable To Attend:

New Chapter Members Take Note:
Individuals join the chapter though the PMI website. It can take up to five (5) business days for PMI process a new chapter membership before it shows up in our chapter database. New chapter members will not be able to register for meetings at the chapter member rate until that occurs. The chapter does not want you to wait until your membership is processed, before you attend a meeting.

You must send your email before the advance registration deadline in order to be eligible for the member advance registration rate.
