Establish a program and supporting structure to engage with military members to promote PMI, the chapter, the community, and the benefits they provide.
North Carolina is home to 10 military installations of various sizes. As of 2015, there are approximately:
- 135,600 active military
- 144,500 retired military
- 25,000 civilian employees
With a large number of military members in North Carolina, coupled with a Reduction in Forces (RIF) over the next 5 years, the number of military members looking for work upon separation will increase.
There are two primary audiences this program must address:
- Active duty, guard, and reserve
- Separating and retired
For active duty audiences, our focus will include:
- PM Training
- TAPS participation
For separating and retired audiences, we will focus on:
- Certification Training
- Job search skills
- Job searching via networking and Skillfest-like events
