Call for Papers

Become a Symposium Speaker

The PMI Silicon Valley Chapter is pleased to announce its 2021 Annual Symposium, which will be conducted virtually.  This year's theme is: “Influencing without Authority - Getting Results and Leading Teams of Project Contributors Who Report to Others.

Most modern project leaders face the challenge of directing project work where some, perhaps all, contributors report to other managers, organizations, or companies. Have you successfully dealt with cross-functional, 'matrix' project teams? Would you like to share your experiences leading diverse teams with like-minded professionals and participate in an online event where you will learn from others who have faced similar challenges?

If so, please plan to join us as a virtual session speaker at our 2021 PMI Silicon Valley Annual Symposium.

Deadline for submission is: July 9, 2021
