Frame has been actively serving PMI since 1989. From 1990 to early 1996, he was PMI’s Director of Certification. It was through his efforts that the certification program grew explosively. Today nearly 100,000 project professionals have achieved certification. In 1998-1999, Frame was PMI’s Director of Educational Services. Then he served as an elected member of PMI’s Board of Directors for three years during 2000-2002. In 1993, he won PMI’s Distinguished Contribution Award. In 1995, he won the Person of the Year Award.


“At UMT, we are proud of our association with PMI,” says Dr. Chen. “I look forward to helping guide PMI’s future direction during my tenure as a PMI Director. Watching PMI grow has been exciting. Over the past fifteen years, we have worked with volunteers from throughout the world to help PMI grow from a small society of 7,500 members to one with 150,000 members.

“Also, I would like to say how pleased I am that our Academic Dean has been named a PMI Fellow. PMI has no higher award. Dr. Frame is one of a handful of people who through his dedicated, volunteer work has helped PMI grow into one of the largest societies in the world.”
