How to Get Involved in International PMO Day

International PMO Day is all about highlighting, showing appreciation, promoting and celebrating PMOs today. 

This is a day for PMO practitioners who work in PMOs; those people who manage PMOs; organizations that have PMOs and delivery professionals who use the services of PMOs.

It’s also a day for the wider PMO community – those who run professional bodies, training companies, provide tools and services utilised by PMOs.

If you would like to help raise the profile and profession of PMO, get involved on International PMO Day.
