PMO Local Community

PMO Local Community of Practice

The objective of the PMO (Project Management Office) Local Community of Practice is to build and engage local PMO professionals by advancing PMO best practices while offering an opportunity for mentorship, networking, knowledge exchange, and support to local PMO professionals.

Members of such a PMO community are the ones who believe in and have a passion for project management practices. It may include individuals working within a PMO as a manager or a member working on a single project, including a project manager, project controller, and others involved in project work.


The absence of a local PMO community hinders PMO professionals’ growth, limiting the extent to which they can network, share knowledge and best practices, and give back to their communities. PMO Global Institute has set a mission to fill this gap by developing non-profit, volunteer-run local PMO chapters worldwide, enabling all PMO professionals to thrive in success and foster the growth of their local communities, having a profound impact with complete PMO solutions.

Currently, PMO Global Institute has 2000+ members in over 100 countries, reflecting the massive potential for local PMO community chapters. We welcome dedicated individuals to join this massive PMO network to drive the desired PMO development in their local communities.
