The Corporate Ambassador Program is an initiative of Corporate Outreach.
Our mission is to increase the visibility of Chicagoland organizations within the PMI Project Management community and better serve them by offering them a goal focused program that helps them improve their project management practices.
Participants represent their organization and facilitate communication with the PMI Chicagoland Chapter while promoting project management practices in their organizations.
Michelle Vant, Director of Corporate Outreach shared: “Our goal is to empower the Ambassadors to meet their goals and in turn further the practice of project management within their organizations. “
