Capital City A&M Club | The Austin Ags
Reveille Group Distinguished Speaker Series
Last Friday, October 21, I attended the Austin Ags’ Reveille Distinguished Speaker Series luncheon. Hosted at The Headliners Club with its remarkable skyline view of downtown Austin, CCAMC President, David Perez ‘02, welcomed the day’s distinguished speaker, Grant Birdwell ’00. The Distinguished Speaker Series “invites business and civic leaders to engage with [the CCAMC] membership on professional topics. Speakers draw upon their experiential knowledge as they engage in relevant, inspirational, and informative discussions.” Grant Birdwell was no exception, his talk on Unorthodox Strategic Partnerships was timely, motivating one’s ideas on collaborative efforts to expand the thought and creation of nontraditional partnerships.
The Reveille Group, a program of the Capital City A&M Club, “serves the Austin Aggie community as the professional arm of the CCAMC.” Its mission is to offer “quality events centered on the idea of bringing a professional Aggie Network together” in the greater Austin area. In my reunion to the CCAMC, I have met Aggies from as north as Georgetown, Tx, as south as the outskirts of San Antonio, Tx, as east as Bastrop, Tx , and as west as Johnson City, Tx.
After graduation, life will take you near and far, it’s a good thing to connect with other Aggies as they will certainly be friends, colleagues, and a positive network. Whether you are in a new city or small town, you’ll be sure to find a fellow TAMU Ag. I was a former member of the CCAMC before my move to California, and while in California I joined the San Francisco Bay Area A&M Club. Now I’m back with the Austin Ags, enjoying the camaraderie and being a part of a successful professional network.
