WHO IS AIPM?

AIPM is made up of nearly 8000 project professionals, across Australia and internationally. Our members range from students starting out in their career to leaders in the project management world. 

We put members at the heart of everything we do and will be alongside you at each stage of your career, advocating on your behalf on matters that are important to the project professional. 

As a not-for-profit organisation, we provide our members with a range of valuable services, such as certification so you can take that next step with confidence, host hundreds of events each year to bring the project community together and run awards programs so that you and your colleagues can be recognised for the outstanding project work you do.
