What we’re about

We're the Digital Project Management (DPM) Philly Network. We host monthly events for people who manage all things digital.

DPM Philly aims to bring together project managers from the region to network, share war stories, support and mentor each other, and have some fun. 

Our goal: to establish a really solid group built for and by the people who manage interactive digital projects.

Our Story

The DPM Philly meetup group started in the Fall of 2011 as a part of Philamade. The group’s founding member, Brett Harned, coaxed the leaders of Philamade to host a “Bring your PM” Happy Hour at Philadelphia’s Frankford Hall. The turnout was legitimate and email addresses were collected, so a small meetup group began under the name “PhilaPM.”

Recent History

Since that initial meetup, the team has hosted several events–from round tables to workshops and happy hours–to modest groups of Philadelphia-based project managers. Brett and Sloan Miller operated the meetups together for two years and put on a handful of successful events. In the Winter of 2013, the planning team expanded to include Justin Handler, and Abby Fretz. At that point, the decision was made to re-brand the group as Philly DPM with a continued dedication to providing meaningful, fun activities for project managers, producers, and account people in the Philadelphia area.

We’re constantly looking for new and exciting opportunities for this community to grow. If you’ve got ideas for events or opportunities for Philly-based digital project managers, please get in touch via the messaging platform here, on We’d love to hear from you!
