Project Management Guide

A PMG, or Project Management Guide, is a tool that chapters use to run projects. This guide should have every detail needed to run a project. To propose a project to the chapter, an initial PMG is submitted for approval.  An initial PMG consists of parts 1-7. Upon approval, funds can be spent. A final PMG is turned in within 90 days of a project's completion, and includes sections 1-11.

PMGs are submitted to state for POC points as well as award consideration
