Join us as we celebrate our members and mission in our annual kick-off recognizing our accomplishments and looking ahead to more good work to come. In 2022, we'll cheer in the new year with an evening event filled with music and a celebration of our members and the Austin-area business community at large. We'll welcome our 2022 Board Chair Fred Heldenfels and honor the 2021 Austinite of the Year. We can't wait to celebrate with you!

Austinite of the Year

“Colette has transformed Huston-Tillotson," Nikki Graham, the 2021 chairwoman of the Austin Chamber of Commerce, said. "In every room I've been with her, she has encouraged courageous leadership. She's collaborative and wants people to work together, but she's not afraid to push the status quo and make people see things differently. She has played a key role in this important time in our city's history and her background in business and a unique set of skills help her relate to elected officials, businesspeople, and academics alike. She's a unifier and the Austin community should be unified in its recognition that this honor is more than deserved.”
