On November 8 & 9 over 100 LAI members traveled from around the globe to Austin, Texas for Fall 2019 LEW. The impressive two days of tours and presentations culminated with an Awards Banquet.

Each LEW day began with a presentation on Austin's economic landscape addressing historical contributions to current successes | challenges. Additionally, work-in-progress to harness the explosive growth with healthy outcomes was addressed and discussed.

During the day, the LEW Group visited prominent sites showcasing Austin's economic, social conscious, and natural drivers.

It was an empowering and excellent visit to Austin. A big THANK YOU to the Austin LAI Chapter for your tremendous time and effort in creating a superb LEW experience.
