Join us for the Chamber's Annual Meeting, our premier member event where we celebrate the Austinite of the Year and Volunteers of the Year, learn about the Chamber's priorities for 2021, and announce the 2021 Chamber Executive Committee and Board of Directors.

The past year presented struggles for many in our business community. This is our opportunity to come together to celebrate our successes and look ahead to the year to come.

Austinite of the Year

“Susan Dawson exemplifies what it means to be Austinite of the Year,” said Chamber Board Chair Craig Enoch. “Throughout her career, she has been dedicated to serving our business community, transforming the economy, and reshaping our education system. Susan’s time at the Chamber initiated the economic development program that continues to foster job-creating investment across the Austin region. Susan is more than deserving of this honor, and I want to congratulate her on this distinction.”
