PDD 2021 (Professional Development Day #2)


2 days of online educational seminars


Welcome to the Pittsburgh PMI 10th annual PDD (Professional Development Day)!  This year's event will span two days and will be conducted via Zoom.   Our goal is to cost effectively to expand Project Mangement and Agile awareness and understanding across our membership while providing the opportunity to earn those all-important PDUs! The event themes and topics have been selected with the Project Management community in mind. The program will include a series of presentations and activities. Each will be led by project management experts and industry thought leaders hand picked by the PDD team.  

NOTE: All attendees must register for a (free) Zoom Basic account prior to PDD. Additional instructions will be provided after registering on the chapter website.

Registration closes on Wednesday, October 27.


This event is eligible for eight self-reported PDUs (four per day).  PDU Registration codes will be provided after the PDD sessions.
