Welcome to the Alamo PMI Chapter

Alamo PMI

We are dedicated to promoting the field of project management within the San Antonio and surrounding area. We do this by providing opportunities to further project management knowledge and experience, to earn continuing education credits, and to network and share ideas and information.  


 As a result of the low enrollment for the seminar “Social Compass” it was mutually decided that Dr. Gwynne Dawdy would cancel her trip to San Antonio, TX. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. In lieu thereof, we are fortunate to have obtained the services of Brad Hunt, Principal, WHY Group, LLC. who will be giving tonight’s presentation.

The Next Monthly Chapter Meeting is September 24, 2014


 Doors open at 5:30 PM, Dinner at 6:15 PM

 Great Speakers, Networking Opportunities, and Prizes

Topic:“Can’t shoot ‘em.  Probably best to work with them.”  Negotiations in the 21st Century

Monthly Chapter Meeting (1.5 PDUs) 

Monthly Chapter Meetings Prices:

  • $25 for members (pre-registered)
  • $35 for non-members (pre-registered)
  • $40 at the door


We are involved in various negotiating situations constantly. It might be a teen-ager we are parenting.  A service lapse at our favorite restaurant. Buying a car.  But far more likely in our daily world it is the ying-yang of getting team-members on the same page for a deliverable. Or timing.  Or cost.  Or even dealing with a supplier or customer who isn’t thrilled with all that has happened in THEIR world.  We will look at a human-based model for what’s going on inside the other party (and ourselves) and how to be better prepared to deal with angst, conflict, agreeing to disagree and other classic aspects of negotiating towards a positive outcome.  Or what to do when it’s out of reach.

Who should attend this meeting:

Humans. Those who can fog a mirror or who have blips on their EKG.  And everyone else.  No pets allowed please.

What one can expect to Learn:

  • Classic negotiating preparation tips

  • Understanding “the wheel” and what’s happening inside a fellow Homo Sapiens amidst a negotiation/transaction.

  • Improved self-awareness for your own “wheel”

  • BATNA and other academic based models for negotiation

  • Within conflict – the contrasts of “peace-breaking” and “peace-faking”

  • The physiological consequences of fear and the fight v. flight response. And thus why some preparation can be so strategic to a better outcome.
