About PMI

The Project Management Institute of New Zealand (PMINZ) is proud to promote the Project Management Conference in Christchurch this year. PMINZ is a chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI). With over 454,000 members in over 280 countries, the PMI is the leading membership association for the project management profession in the world. Established in 1969, PMI is actively engaged in advocacy for the profession, setting professional standards, conducting research, and providing access to a wealth of information and resources. PMI also promotes career and professional development and offers certification, networking, and community involvement opportunities.

For 47 years, PMI has advanced the careers of practitioners who make project management indispensable for achieving business results.

PMI has over 520,000 individuals holding the Project Management Professional (PMP®) credential, making it the most widely recognized - and the only global - certification in the profession.

Closer to home, PMINZ was officially granted its charter to operate in New Zealand on March 12, 1994 and has experienced exceptional growth since then and remains one of the largest chapters outside North America, with over 1700 members. PMINZ has three active branches: South Island Branch (based in Christchurch and including Nelson and Dunedin Sub-Branches), Central Branch (based in Wellington includes Sub-Branches in Hawke's Bay, Manawatu-Whanganui and Taranaki) and Northern Branch (based in Auckland and including Northland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty Sub-Branches). PMINZ has regularly received international PMI awards in recognition of its success.
