PMINEO Annual Awards

The PMINEO Chapter rewards Northeast Ohio professionals for outstanding achievements in Project Management. We recognize the hard work and ongoing commitment shown by project management professionals within their industries and communities. We honor our fellow professionals with the recognition that they deserve. We are currently accepting nominations for awards in three categories:

  • Project of the Year 

    Awarded to a Project Management Team that delivered the most significant improvements for their stakeholders and organization during 2022. The team will receive an award and a $1000 prize.

    The PMINEO Project of the Year award recognizes a project that best delivers the anticipated organizational results and demonstrates outstanding examples of project management principles and practices at work. Some characteristics of a candidate project include a well-defined business case where project objectives were met, expected business value delivered, and project completion within schedule and on budget.
