PMI Hardship Provision

PMI Hardship Provision to help members renew their membership

Under PMI’s hardship 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 membership groups - such as the PMI Westchester Chapter - of which the applicant was a member the previous year.

The hardship provision is available to any PMI member whose financial condition has changed drastically and sufficiently so that the 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. 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 your PMI Member number and the invoice, if available, to the attention of the Manager, Membership Services prior to the membership expiration date.
