PMI OVOC mentoring program launches

The mentoring program is now launching with registration starting in March and program meetings starting in April. The program provides interested members (Protégés) with mentoring support that materially helps the member on his/her journey to becoming a very effective project management practitioner. Mentoring is the act of a more experienced person, the Mentor, providing guidance, wisdom, knowledge, and support in a manner in which a Protégé can receive and benefit from it.

The program is available to anyone who is a member of the PMI OVOC chapter.
