What is it?
The book club will be an opportunity for PMI CVC members to read interesting books as a group and discuss them online through a LinkedIn group. Participants will earn one PDU for each hour they read as part of PMIs self-directed learning. We expect books to take an average of 5 hours to read. The group will complete a book every two months (six books per year) allowing participants to earn 30 PDUs or more per year. Books will be selected based on the interests of the members and a vote between several options each period.
The time commitment for the group will depend on how fast you read and how much you choose to participate. This allows a lot of flexibility which we hope will be appropriate for people's busy lives.
What is in it for you?
There's three main reasons we think this would benefit you:
- Connect with Project Management Professionals: Want to connect with intelligent, driven and interesting people in our industry? Joining the book club will introduce you to a lot of great people and help you improve your network.
- Earn PDUs: Participants earn one PDU for each hour they read. We expect active participants to earn 30 PDUs or more without needing to leave the comfort of your home.
- Reading is Good for You: Did you know business people who read at least seven business books per year earn over 230% more than people reading just one book per year1? Or that reading improves your intelligence, reasoning ability and has been linked to reducing the chance of Alzheimer's2? Joining our book club will help you read more and enjoy all the benefits that come with it.
