Each nominee was vetted by hand-selected students at Concordia University Texas. Students scored each nominee based on phone interviews and their own research, narrowing a list of over 50 nominees down to 15 finalists (three in each of five categories). Next, the students will begin a rigorous, in-depth review of each finalist and present their findings to an independent selection committee, made up of hand-selected Leadership Austin alumni and board members, who will select the final award recipients.

The final awards will be announced at the annual awards luncheon on May 23, 2019. It is attended each year by hundreds of Central Texas business leaders and is expected to draw as many as 700 attendees in 2019. For more information about the event, sponsorships and tickets, please click here.
