The Ithaca branch grew from a group of project managers from Cornell University that started meeting in 2009.  What began as a special interest group expanded into a regional group of project manager professionals. As the group matured, a decision was made to pursue a formal relationship with PMI to better serve the region in support of the Project Management practice.

With help from the PMI Rochester Chapter President, the chapter by-laws were amended to include Ithaca as a formal branch of PMI Rochester. The move has proven beneficial to members and the community alike, as it expanded the possibilities for valuable programs, as well as provided our members more opportunities for involvement in PMI activities (also helping our PMPs receive PDUs).

Since the branch was formalized in early 2011, we’ve grown from approximately 15-20 PMI members to 64! (as of September 2016) Our membership reaches geographically all over the Finger Lakes region, as well as across diverse industries: from manufacturing to medical care to higher education. We are particularly proud of the fact that the number of members with the PMP certification has risen from 16 to 30. We welcome anyone from around the Ithaca region that is interested in project management to get involved! For more information, contact Dina Maxwell, VP of Ithaca Branch, at
