TOWN HALL MEETING
Town Hall is one of Impact Austin’s Signature Events. With over 200 attendees each year, this fun and informative fall gathering features awarding new Equity and Health & Well-Being Grants, inspirational updates from the work of our Community Partners, and opportunities for member community and camaraderie.
"Together We Shine Brighter"
We’re changing it up this year with a two-night celebration!
We’ll gather virtually on November 16, gain inspiration from the work of our 2020 Community Partners, award new Equity and Health & Well-Being Grants, and explore all the ways we can deepen our personal impact. On November 18, we step away from our computers, reconnect in-person, and celebrate outdoors at Zilker Lodge!
