June 11, 2018 - Event Recap
Members, Community Partners, Friends, and Fans gathered together June 11, 2018, at Austin's City Hall Chambers to celebrate a special Impact Austin Tradition. Our Check Award Ceremony is held each year after the Annual Meeting where our Community Partners for the coming year are elected.
