Established in 1969 and headquartered outside Philadelphia, the Project Management Institute (PMI) is the world's leading not-for-profit project management professional association, with more than 125,000 members worldwide. Lori Salamida, a certified Project Management Professional (PMP) and eLearning program planner for the Project Management Institute, will be the main presenter.

"This is the first time that we've worked with another professional organization to coordinate a satellite seminar," says Paul Novak, ISM CEO. "Working cooperatively to enlighten and educate our respective members allows us to capitalize on the talents and credentials of quality presenters from two professions. Our goal is to enable as many members as possible of both ISM and PMI to view the June 10 broadcast."
