Posted on 12/16/2020

AUSTIN, Texas—The Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce today announced the organization's 2020 Volunteers of the Year. These business leaders will be recognized during the 143rd Annual Meeting on Feb. 3.

As volunteers, these individuals went above and beyond in supporting the Chamber's mission with their time and talents. They have enhanced the business community's efforts to take on the biggest challenges facing business in Austin.

"In a year that challenged us all, these business leaders offered extraordinary service," said Chamber Board Chair Craig Enoch. “At the same time the Chamber faced its own uncertainties, so did the entire Austin business community. With remarkable skill and persistent effort, these volunteers helped the Chamber successfully pivot its operations and offerings, leading to a strong economic rebound. Their individual contributions to the Chamber and the broader business community have made a world of difference."
