The House of PMO is a professional membership organisation for those working in PMOs today. Initially set up in 2013 and called PMO Flashmob, it transitioned to the House of PMO in 2021. The House of PMO was established to bring PMO people together, creating a home for PMO professionals where they can develop themselves, support the development of others and contribute to the development of the PMO profession. How is this achieved? By developing standards – such as the PMO Competency Framework; providing professional development (the Essentials qualifications); arranging events and networking opportunities (such as weekly events and an annual PMO Conference); providing a platform to learn from each other (the annual PMO Managers Lunch); publishing works, supporting research, tracking trends and providing essential knowledge for PMO practitioners working today.

Major Projects Association – Established in 1981, MPA is a UK-based membership association for organisations engaged in the development and delivery of major projects, programmes and portfolios.  MPA provides a forum for organizations, both public and private, to share experience, knowledge and ideas about major projects – both successes and failures – to help others avoid mistakes and incorporate good practice, in order that future projects would be better initiated and delivered.
