Hot Spots. Hot Issues. Get Connected.

This spring join Leadership Austin to Experience Austin - a non-profit program that offers an informative, interactive orientation to the city. Experience Austin introduces participants to Austin´s issues, icons and institutions, and the people actively involved in creating solutions. The program is presented as a five session survey of Austin, including behind the scenes tours and introductions to the top leaders in the local government, economic, education, healthcare, arts and entertainment communities.

The Experience Austin program is ideal for entrepreneurs or small business owners and is a must for anyone who values networking and a deep understanding of their community as critical for success. The program increases visibility, fosters high value contacts and creates community context. Experience Austin participants leave with a greater love for Austin and local connections that will enrich both their personal and professional lives.

Experience Austin helped me plug into the local leadership scene and quickly survey the major issues that are driving current decisions and future plans in Central Texas. I was also very impressed with the access to experts and their points of view in the areas of civic engagement, economic development, land use, healthcare, education, and the creative culture that makes Austin special. I highly recommend the full program to others who are serious about making a difference but unsure where to begin.
