"Our region’s moment is here. How we navigate it and plan for the future will impact millions. The chamber wants to lead the way.
"This year, I am honored to be the chair for the chamber’s board of directors, and I am in awe of all that we have accomplished together while being humbled by the road ahead.
"My top priority for 2022 is to initiate a joint super-regional partnership between the eight-county San Antonio region and our five-county Austin region. We should find ways to collaborate with our neighbors to form a mutually beneficial economic development corridor or super-region in Central Texas.
"At the Greater Austin Chamber, we are honored to serve the region as stewards of this potential, and we look forward to the prosperity it brings."
