About the Associate Director - Academic Engagement Role

PMIQ's Volunteer Associate Director - Academic Engagement - builds strong networks between PMIQ and the Academic Community in Queensland.  This provides opportunities for Queensland Project Managers to develop their skills & grow in their capabilities, it helps academics to more easily access and partner with Industry Professionals locally and with the international capabilities of PMI, and it helps students to link with industry professionals and more easily make the transition to industry. This role contributes heavily to our thought leadership pillar - bringing global best thinking to our industries (both from PMI to our universities, and from our universities to our practitioners).

Our Chapter Mission, Vision and Pillars are what we are about.
Volunteering is also a huge part of how PMIQ provides value to members, and also how members can best get to know others and establish new skills and strong networks in industry. If you have an interest in better networks, giving back, or showcasing or growing your skills please contact our Associate Director - Volunteering to discuss how volunteering might open great doors for you.
