We are thrilled to welcome Jane Jenkins to discuss preservation and authenticity of place, issues that figure so greatly in discussions of Austin’s rapid growth. Authenticity stems from creating and maintaining an experience, appearance, and impression of a place that accurately reflects its character and heritage while adding functionality to match modern needs. Our city’s history and culture are essential to this equation as we evolve into a competitive, world-class metropolis. Ms. Jenkins will explore the elements that contribute to authenticity, and how Austin can embrace these to create a rich urban experience moving forward.
CHECK-IN OPENS AT 11AM. Luncheon is served at 11:30am, program begins promptly at 11:45am.
We encourage groups of four or more guests to purchase a half or full table sponsorship. We do our best, but cannot guarantee that large groups of individual ticket buyers will be able to sit together.
