How Often Should You Report Your Credits to PMI®?

MPUG recommends that you report earned credits to PMI as soon as you’ve earned them in order to keep track of the credit codes and other forms of documentation you’ll receive as part of your MPUG activities. The only exception to that practice is chapter leadership credit, which should be done annually.
