PMI Austin Chapter is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of 9 member-elected Officers for various terms. All Officers directly report to the President of the PMI Austin Board.

The board works collaboratively under the president's leadership to bring great value to the membership. The PMIA Board meets monthly to discuss strategic intiatives and operational activities that aligns with the PMI Core Values. 

The collective wisdom, experience, diversity and passion of the Board ultimately sets and executes PMI’s core ideology: our core purpose — PMI’s reasons for being, and our core values — the essential and enduring principles that guide PMI. Our vitality and relevance is driven by the PMI Board and its volunteers.

Please feel free to contact any member of the Board of Directors with any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have.

If you are interested in serving on the PMIA Board of Directors, contact our President for more information.
