LEAD Summit Committee

The LEAD Summit Committee is responsible for the planning and implementation of the annual LEAD Summit and ChangeMaker Awards. The LEAD Summit (Learn | Explore | Act | Develop) is a one-day event that combines both learning and action. The ChangeMaker Awards is where we celebrate several amazing ChangeMakers in our community. The ChangeMaker Awards are open to all and nominations will be available in the fall. The committee will help with LEAD programming, speaker procurement, creating the nominations and voting program, determining a marketing plan, assisting in venue selection, sponsorship outreach, and more.

Time Commitment
One monthly meeting. May include some offline subcommittee planning sessions. Committee members are expected to volunteer at the event.

What We Do

  • Design day-long conference through content and speaker selection
  • Recognize ChangeMakers throughout the Austin community
  • Connect with local businesses, organizations, and associations
  • Develop & execute a marketing plan for ticket sales
