Get Involved

The Austin Young Chamber provides many committees & programs that provide opportunities for getting involved in the AYC community.

Ambassador’s Committee:

The welcoming committee for AYC! This committee meets monthly and hosts a new member event each month. It’s a great way to meet new people! Acts as a liaison between the Board and the AYC members, responsible for listening, understanding and communicating membership needs. AYC Ambassadors are committed to assisting new and existing members in getting the maximum benefit out of their memberships. Members of the Ambassador Committee will have the opportunity to serve as hosts for AYC events, network and meet with new members as well as introduce potential members to our organization.

Time Commitment: Monthly meeting at 5:30pm on the last Monday of every month; asked to attend new member events and mixers as schedule permits.

Chair: Andrew Martin

Economic Development Committee:

The Economic Development Committee’s purpose is to create opportunity for relative financial success and security for young Austin residents. Working with other AYC committees, members, local groups, and business, this committee is a forward-looking group focused on solutions for Austin’s young professionals.

Chair: Adam Flagg

FAVE Awards Committee:

Responsible for helping plan and implement the annual FAVE awards ceremony. Committee members will coordinate award categories, sponsorships, venue selection, silent auction donations, community outreach, and most importantly attend an event that AYC members and partners will embrace and attend.

Time Commitment: Meeting dates and volunteer requirements closer to event date.

Co-Chairs: Kelly Mosser & Reese Cisneros

Time Commitment: Monthly meeting at 6:00pm on the third Tuesday of the month and volunteer requirements at Imagine events.

Leadership Service Committee:

Gives AYC members the opportunity to give back to the community throughout the year through service. This committee meets monthly, hosts the AYC Non Profit Fair in April and does additional community service events for AYC members. Acts as a conduit between Austin-area non-profits and members through outreach and public awareness. Committee Members plan which issue areas and non-profits to rally around throughout the year.

State of AYC Committee:

This committee is responsible for the planning and implementation of AYC’s annual luncheon, where we celebrate past successes, honor our volunteers, and look toward the future of AYC. Rather than monthly meetings for members, we hold one huge event per year and invite members, partners, and friends to get more engaged in AYC and get excited for the coming year.

Time Commitment: Meeting dates and volunteer requirements closer to event date.

Chair: Emmy Hill

Poker Tournament Committee:

Responsible for helping plan and implement AYC’s annual Poker Tournament for AYC members. Committee members will help coordinate sponsors, event logistics, venue selection, games/prizes, and vendors. This event is one of the organization’s largest and most successful fundraisers.
