Hardship Provisions

A "Hardship Provision" is available to any PMI member whose financial condition has changed drastically and sufficiently so that a member would have difficulty renewing their membership.

A member must be in good standing for at least three previous years to qualify for the hardship provision. Under this provision, a member is granted a waiver for one year of PMI membership dues and one year of dues for membership in any two PMI Chapters of which the applicant was a member the previous year.

The Hardship Provision may be granted for a maximum of two years for each member.

This information can also be located on the back of the renewal invoice that members receive. To apply for consideration send a letter explaining the nature of the hardship, along with the invoice, to the attention of the Manager, Membership Services prior to the membership expiration date.

Please remember that any incorrect or untrue statements made by a member are in violation of the PMI Member Ethical Standards-Member Standards of Conduct and may lead to the initiation of an ethics complaint in accordance with the PMI Member Ethics Case Procedures.
