As a PMI Honolulu Hawaii Chapter member, one of the ways you can give back to the organization (and earn PDU credits) is to volunteer.


Here is a list of volunteer "positions" on committees and as support to the chapter organization on an on-going basis.    

Board of Directors and Chapter Officers

Chapter members in good standing may serve on the Board of Directors. Core officers (President, Vice President, Communications, Finance) and other Board of Director positions are either nominated and elected by members or appointed as Directors at Large by the Board.

Committee Leads

Recurring committee leads are appointed and approved by the Board of Directors.  Typical Committee Leads that volunteer every year include Military Liaison, Membership Committee, Volunteer Coordinator, Communications Committee, Professional Development Committee, and more.

Professional Development Day (PDD) Volunteers

The PDD requires the support of a number of volunteers to plan, organize, and execute our biggest event every year.


Volunteer on a GLOBAL level as well as LOCALLY

PMI Honolulu Hawaii Chapter posts volunteer opportunities in the PMI Global's tool to provide more volunteering opportunities!

Through this tool, you will be able to see all the volunteer postings not only with Hawaii but other chapters that many require volunteering efforts that could be done virtually.

Please visit the Volunteer Resource Management System (VRMS) at https://vrms.pmi.org/. User login and password is the same as the PMI login.

For Hawaii's open positions, go to Find Opportunities and select Honolulu Chapter under the Chapter pull-down menu.

More volunteer positions will be posted throughout the year. If you have any questions regarding the VRMS usage, please email our Membership Director.

Thank You!
