“It’s a cost-effective means of hearing from 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.”

“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!”
