Why You Should Nominate
Young professionals comprise about 40% of our city’s population according to the US Census Bureau. When you nominate a local business – one you own, work for, or patronize / support – you are celebrating that business and increasing their visibility in Austin. Austin Young Chamber members are eager to learn more about our community – nominating your FAVEs is a great way to help get the word out about the local businesses who are making Austin one of the best places to live, work and play.

How Do Nominations Work?
Whether you are an Austin Young Chamber member, business owner, or just love Austin and our community – we want you to nominate your FAVEs. Nominations are open to the general public and self-nominations are allowed and encouraged. All nominees will be contacted on 7/15 to supply additional information on why their business deserves recognition as a FAVE. This year we will be enlisting judges from the AYC membership to review and score submissions. Finalists will be notified in early September.

What’s Next?
Later this summer we will host a mixer to announce and celebrate the FAVE finalists. Winners will be revealed at the 10th Annual FAVE Awards Gala, to be hosted Friday, November 8, 2019 at the JW Marriott. The gala is open to the general business community and will include cocktails, networking, dinner, and the awards program.

To reserve a table or for more info please contact Katherine@AustinYoungChamber.org.
