The Project Management Institute Phoenix is grateful to have the support of so many local organizations. Through the support, we have a Corporate Ambassador Program (CAP) for those organizations with a presence in the Phoenix Metropolitan and surrounding areas.

You can bring in ideas, share experiences, and become an inherent part of PMI on behalf of your organization. The program also allows you to help improve and streamline the flow of information between PMI and the corporations in our area and allow those organizations to help contribute to the success of the chapter.
