Business Outreach

Get More Out of Your Organization

Business Outreach’s goal is to create strategic partnerships with local businesses and executives to promote and drive the value of project, program and portfolio management as a core capability to support organizational success; and to provide career services to enhance member value. There are three program areas; Corporate Outreach, Career Outreach and Executive Council.

Corporate Outreach

Corporate Outreach is focused on advancing the practice and profession of project management among businesses throughout the greater Chicago area in a conscious and proactive manner. The Ambassador Program is the “flagship” connecting the chapter to member organizations and businesses. [visit]


Career Outreach

Career Outreach provides services that help Chapter members enhance their careers with an emphasis on areas of transition and growth in the project management profession. One of the key member value offering is the Chapter Job Board which is constantly updated with available jobs and the opportunity to post resumes that can be seen by hiring organizations. [visit]


Executive Council

The Executive Council exists to promote the strategic and operational value of Project Management, advancing the profession to the C-suite. This provides a thought leadership forum for select senior-level business leaders and project management executives to focus on tackling industry challenges, sharing trends, ideas, challenges, and other relevant topics.
