One thing they love to do is bring in "young people" like our MIS students to meet them and hear about what they do. Professor Sridar brought a group of his students (and me) along to one of their monthly dinner meetings awhile back and I was totally impressed with this group. They were extremely welcoming and encouraging to our students (and me) and I learned a lot from the excellent after-dinner speaker.
It's not too formal, they use a banquet room at Michael's on Shoreline. There were around 40-50 people there. They have cocktails first and chat. Then dinner - they seated one student at each table so there were five or six professionals there to chat with each student. Dinner was excellent and followed by dessert & a presentation on some new development in the field, which was excellent. This is normally $30 for non-members but they give students a break for $20. Well worth the price to get to know these folks and their field, especially if you're looking for a job opp.
The next dinner is 4/25, 5:30-8:30pm and you can get details & register online before 4/22 (10pm) at:
Note that there is a Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification that students can get from the PMI. Here's the certifications web page from the SV Chapter. Scroll down to find the CAPM info.
