PMI has officially announced the launch of a potential United Arab Emirates Chapter (as a spin off from the Arabian Gulf Chapter, who's serving the community for nearly two decades). This new Chapter will focus on enhancing the member experience and on supporting practitioners entering and advancing in the profession within the UAE. Beginning today, you may join the potential PMI UAE Chapter at no additional cost, and be a part of this adventure from the beginning.
This is an important milestone for the profession in the region, especially after 2007's rejection from PMI. I have witnessed the establishment of a potential Chapter in Czech Republic, and I'm glad to see this happening while I'm based here in the UAE.
