PMI Belgium: Historic Background

Since the early nineties, PMI members residing in the Belgium - Luxembourg area were part of a large chapter called Norden.

At a first PMI Europe Conference in June, 1997 in Paris, the idea was born to create a more local chapter for the Benelux countries. After significant preparation work of a founding Board of Directors, the PMI Benelux Chapter was officially recognized by the Project Management Institute as an independent component in the fourth quarter of 1998.

  • Since that start-up, our chapter has grown to one of the largest in Europe. At the end of July 2001, the chapter had more than 850 members and more than 300 certified individuals.
  • In November 2001, the new PMI Netherlands Chapter was founded and as a result of this split our chapter was renamed PMI Belgium Chapter from January 1, 2002 onwards.
  • On 30 June 2010 the new PMI Luxembourg Chapter was founded
