(Note: The above opportunities are intended to allow vendors of PM-based products and services to provide support for PMI-SV and the project management profession its members represent, thru creating an awareness of businesses that may supply their professional needs. Sponsorship is intended to be a statement of support for the profession by the sponsoring business; NOT a statement of PMI-SV support for the business.

PMI-SV does not sell advertising in any form for any business. Specific limitations include, but not limited to, the following:

  • Not promoting specific non-PMI events, products, or services (all sponsorship material must be generic to the business and its purpose)
  • PMI-SV NOT selling our member list to any 3rd parties nor using it for the benefit of the same
  • PMI-SV does not accept any kickback, giveback or discount arrangements from member purchases; discounts given by businesses directly to members are acceptable

In general, PMI-SV maintains a neutral position relative to all vendors; treating all equally and not recommending one over another.)
