About Us

The PMI® Austin Chapter was founded in 1992 as a non-profit, tax exempt corporation chartered by PMI®, and is dedicated to advancing the practice, science, and profession of project management leadership in a conscious and proactive manner.

PMIA fosters professionalism and leadership in the management of projects, programs and portfolios.

  • To contribute to the quality and scope of project, program and portfolio management.
  • To stimulate appropriate global application of project, program and portfolio management best practices for the benefit of general public.
  • To provide a recognized forum for the free exchange of ideas, applications,and solutions to project, program and portfolio management issues among its members, and other interested and involved in project, program and portfolio management organizational (PMO) leadership.
  • To identify and promote the fundamentals of project management leadership and advance the bodies of knowledge for successfully managing projects, programs, portfolios by contributing to and achieving organizational objectives.

Membership for our chapter is over 2,400 members and our monthly dinner meetings typically attract over 200 attendees. We work hard to make sure that our members and Austin-area project managers are aware of chapter events, and that they feel welcome when they arrive.

The values we have are firmly focused on developing the quality of project management and recognizing it as a valued profession. To that end, we offer educational programs like our PMP Exam Prep course and various monthly speaking events. We support our members by offering a successful Mentor/Mentee Program and we support our military veterans through our Veteran's Program.
