Professional Development Day 2021
Postponed: Stay tuned for more details

Unfortunately, with Covid cases on the rise, and with new restrictions being imposed by the City of Columbus on indoor events, we have decided to postpone the 2021 Professional Development Day indefinitely. The PDD team are working with the convention center on the availability of new dates in 2022

A message from President Rich Schmelzer

Fellow PMI Central Ohio Chapter Members:

Back in April of this year, with encouraging signs on pandemic restrictions being lifted and a sense that the worst of Covid being behind us, the PMI Central Ohio Chapter Board made the decision to hold our 2021 annual Professional Development Day (PDD) as a face-to-face event at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.    Our decision was based on feedback we received from a survey to our members, from guidance received by PMI national, and from informal discussions with other non-profit organizations in Columbus on their plans to hold face-to-face events.     Unfortunately, with Covid cases on the rise, and with new restrictions being imposed by the City of Columbus on indoor events, we have decided to postpone the 2021 Professional Development Day indefinitely.    The PDD team are working with the convention center on the availability of new dates in 2022.    While this was a difficult and disappointing decision to make, the board felt this was the most prudent action to take to ensure the health and safety of the PDD speakers, sponsors, volunteers, and participants.    Additionally, with new restrictions on social distancing, masking, and the possibility of limitations on registrations, we no longer felt we could hold an event which would meet the standards of quality you have come to expect from our PDDs.   We appreciate your understanding and support of this decision.   Please continue to read our newsletters and bi-weekly e-mail communications for news and updates on PDD and other chapter events. 
 
Thank you for your continued support!
Rich Schmelzer
President, PMICOC
