Project Management for Change, The Taproot Foundation, and the five DC Metropolitan Area Project Management Institute (PMI) chapters invite you to join the 2016 Project Management Day of Service (PMDoS) which is on Martin Luther King Day, 1/18/16, where Project Management Professionals (PMPs) donate their time and talents to local philanthropic organizations.

PMDoS will take place on Monday, January 18, 2016 (Martin Luther King Day) at the University of Maryland, Adele Stamp Student Union Building, College Park, MD at a single session from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

On Martin Luther King Day 2015, 400 PMPs came together to provide pro bono consulting to over 100 non-profit organizations serving our local communities. In 2016, we plan to double our impact, each PMP will donate 4-5 hours worth of consulting translating into 200 project plans and approximately 3,000 hours of professional services support!!. Please use this link: to sign up as a volunteer because all project managers are welcome to volunteer.

Thanks in advance for your support in helping to make this event a success for our communities.
