Sascha Wyss and Carlos Martinez - Nominations Committee
We would like to thank you for your participation in the 2018 Chapter elections.
To all of those who took the time to elect the part of the volunteers that drives the Chapter, thank you!

Dear Friends and Members of PMI Switzerland,
As already announced at the Annual Assembly Meeting in Zürich, we will now host our events on Eventbrite (www.eventbrite.com), thereby launching some major improvements on our way to manage events. We are very excited to share with you more details below.
You will still access details about the events via our website. But once you indicate that you wish to register to one of them, you will be redirected to our Eventbrite page.
The registration is of course online, but also now allows you to pay online with your credit card or paypal. No need to bring cash at the door anymore! No need to wait in the queue! Just bring your ticket, either on paper or on your smartphone. The event team at the reception will simply scan it.
NOTE: It is important to access Eventbrite event page while logged in to our website to be recognized as a member if you want to benefit of the PMI-CH membership discount.
For more details, you can also refer to our FAQ
We hope you will appreciate this change. If you have any question, please feel free to contact us.
PMI Switzerland provides its members the opportunity to mentor other members. This program is a great opportunity for both mentees and mentors alike. Mentees gain valuable real-life knowledge from seasoned project managers, and mentors can find their own skills sharpened as a result of the mentoring relationship.
Reap the rewards of being a mentor or a mentee:
An experienced project manager (PM) who can be a trusted advisor, guide and/or coach to another project manager.
A project manager seeking to obtain advice from an experienced PM professional to improve their project management skills or anyone thinking about exploring the profession of project management. Mentees do not have to have their Project Management Professional (PMP) certification. In fact, many mentees earn their PMP during the course of the mentoring program. Mentees must be an active member of PMI Switzerland to participate in this program.
Our mentoring program brings together our chapter members in mentoring partnerships to meet the professional development goals of the mentee.
We pre-screen mentor and mentee applications and match mentors and mentees. The goal of the mentorship as well as the frequency of exchange is up to the individuals who are matched. Both parties sign a mentorship agreement that sets up basic rules and expectations.
The duration of a mentorship typically lasts approximately 6-10 months, depending on the individual goals.
Both mentors and mentees are required to confirm successful pairing after their first face-to-face meeting. They are also required to take part in a short de-briefing and to provide feedback at the conclusion of the program.
Participants interested in the program are required to fill out an application form for a volunteer opportunity. Current mentorship opportunities are posted under volunteer positions.
Note that the mentoring program is administered by PMI Switzerland volunteers who, along with the mentors, offer their time free of charge for the benefit of the Chapter members.
If you have any questions regarding the mentoring program, please use the contact form and provide the term “mentoring” in the subject.
