Upcoming Austin's Crucial Conversation: Topic To Be Decided February 16th at the 9th Annual CEO & Pastor Dinner. Conversation expected to be Fall of 2023.

Austin's Crucial Conversations

Continued Conversations:
Education - Launched June 2022
Affordable Housing - Launched September 2022

We surveyed 250 top Christian leaders in our city and asked them, "What are the most pressing issues facing Austin today?" Forming a series of conversations, we are inviting a select group of leaders to brainstorm and create a plan to help Austin flourish as we tackle those issues. Our goal is to not only help city leaders clearly clarify/define the problem, but to collaborate, and then develop a plan toward sustainable change for our city that does not rest only on our civic and institutional leaders.

How is this different from other "group think" sessions or "think tank" experiences? ABBA is committed to being the bridge and ensuring next steps for the plans that room creates. This is not an event; it is a process. This is not a lecture; this is a conversation. This is not a fundraiser. Leaders are asked only to show up with their passion, creativity, and minds.

Our next conversation will be held Fall of 2023, covering the topic decided upon during our annual CEO & Pastor Dinner.
