What is an online conference?

An online conference is designed to deliver the same benefits as in-person events (inspiring speakers, valuable takeaways, networking, and plenty of “aha” elements) without the high cost or time away from work. NCPMI is partnering with IIL, a global organization that has over 15 years of experience in organizing online conferences, to bring you this unique day of learning. Enjoy an interactive learning experience from the comfort and convenience of your home or office.

Will I still be able to participate if my company has a corporate firewall in place?

In most cases firewalls will not pose a problem but we do recommend you disconnect from any VPN or corporate network. You should be able to participate in the entire event even if your company has a firewall in place. There is a port checker in the system check. This will allow you to see any potential issues. Run the System Check here.

When can I log in and how long will I have access?

The conference opens on Saturday, August 21, 2021. You will have access to the event through September 10, 2021.

How can I log in to the conference?

You can log in via your laptop or desktop computer, iOS, Android or Windows mobile device. Registrants will be able to log in via the event registration page, which will be shared here and via email closer to the event. Please whitelist to ensure you receive platform updates.

How many PDUs can I earn?

You can earn up to 9.25 PDUs by attending NCPMI 2021.

  • Technical Project Management: 3.5 PDUs
  • Leadership: 3.5 PDUs
  • Strategic and Business: 2.25 PDUs

Do I need to self-report PDUs?

The event comes with the opportunity to earn 9 PDUs. PDUs can only be claimed per attended session, not for the day as a whole. The chapter aims to claim the PDUs on behalf of the attendees for the sessions they attend live, on August 21st, 2021. This is on the condition that the attendee has provided their correct name, email address and PMI number in the same way that these are recognized in the PMI systems. More information will be provided to attendees on the day of the conference.
