PMI® Austin Chapter
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.
PMI Austin Chapter fosters professionalism and leadership in the management of projects, programs and portfolios 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 2,738 members and our monthly dinner meetings typically attract about 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; we maintain a list of job opportunities and support members career searches through our Blue Dot/Green Dot program; and we support our active military and veterans through our Military Outreach program.
