Banner Brunch 2019 >>>
An Incredible Homecoming.

Banner Brunch 2019 was celebrated as a homecoming honoring WCA’s 90-year history and the remarkable trailblazers, leaders, and members who created the organization we call home.

WCA’s 2019 distinctive honorees shared their stories, what inspired them to push past barriers, and how they reached for new professional and personal heights within the industry and the Austin community.

Colette serves as as testament of being a nontraditional leader, a leader with care and compassion. It’s your care that will carry you forward in your success.
