About World Project Control Officers Day™

EVMi® Earned Value Management Institute®, headquartered in Virginia, USA created the World Project Control Officers Day™ to recognize Project Control Officers (PCOs) world wide and celebrate their achievements and accomplishments. World Project Control Officers Day™ is a networking event for PCOs world-wide and this day also focuses on new trends/credential certification programs/ideas/innovations and inventions in the PCO profession and best practices to improve the value PCOs provide on projects and programs.

The world's first ever World Project Control Officers Day™ will be held in Montreal, Canada on a date to be announced in 2014. World Project Control Officers Day™ is managed and organized by EVMi® Earned Value Management Institute®

EVMi® will provide each participant with the EVMBoK® Earned Value Management Body of Knowledge® which includes significant areas and sections related to Project Control Officers (PCOs) and we strongly believe that including the EVMBoK® as part of the World Project Control Officers Day™ agenda and providing copies to each participant will be of greater value to all attending participants. Furthermore, EVMBOK® includes roles and functions of the Project Control Officer (PCO) and significant information related to our CPCO™ Certified Project Control Officer™ program.
