Fair question, George….
Around 2003 or so, because PMI no longer represented the values I subscribe to as a life long (as opposed to accidental) project manager, I didn’t bother to renew my PMP (#740)
First, I do not believe that any legitimate "not-for-profit" professional organization should have 100+ million USD in liquid assets and secondly, I find it incredible that the organization actively competes against their own member/owners who do training.
Lastly, when PMI started to encourage companies such as "Rita, Cheetah and PMP Exam for Dummies" to produce books of sample questions designed not to teach better project management, but simply to enable people to pass the exam, it was the final straw for me.
