On behalf of the ETPMI Board:

One of the common benefits often associated with PMI membership is cited as networking with like professionals. These networking opportunities unfortunately are overlooked when a member becomes unemployed. It is in these troubling economic times when the benefits of membership are often needed most. Therefore, the ETPMI board would like to take this opportunity to inform our group of the PMI hardship policy as it relates to membership and unemployment.

As noted in PMI Today in March 2012, PMI's hardship provision is available to any member who becomes unemployed. In order to qualify, a member must be in good standing and must have paid dues for at least three previous continuous years. Under this provision, a member is granted a waiver for one year of PMI membership dues and one year of dues for membership in any one PMI community which the applicant was a member the previous year. The hardship provision may be granted for a maximum of two years for each member. Details about this program are located on the back of the renewal invoice.

To apply for a hardship provision, please send an email to and explain the nature of your hardship. Please be sure to include a copy of your renewal invoice (if possible).

Please remember that any incorrect or untrue statements made by a member are in violation of the Project Management Institute Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct and may lead to the initiation of an ethics complaint.
