Discovery Day is one of Impact Austin's signature events! We will learn from community leaders and subject matter experts to enhance our knowledge of the critical issues impacting Central Texas.

This event is open to all members and prospective members, and each member is welcome to invite a friend or two, to introduce them to Impact Austin.
The morning will begin with registration, networking and a continental breakfast.
The presentations will begin at 8:30 a.m. featuring these distinguished speakers:
