“I have attended the PM Symposium for many years and always receive value from it. It’s a cost-effective means of hearing from local colleagues about interesting projects, lessons learned, and the challenges in other sectors and industries. And it’s an excellent way to earn professional development units to maintain certifications. In recent years, I’ve particularly appreciated the ability to attend virtually. I continue to appreciate the PM Center of Excellence’s coordination of a good conference in a very welcoming environment.”

-David Carter

“The Project Management Symposium was a wonderful event—I was impressed by the breadth of the speakers’ experience and the session topics. Another highlight was getting to meet and share insights with project managers across many different fields and locations. This was my first time attending, but I will definitely return!”

-Katie Meersman

“One would think that after being a project manager for over thirty years, conferences would become routine. Many of the speakers taught this old dawg new tricks. It was a fantastic experience.”
