Howdy Fellow Texans,

The Texas Lyceum has been founded and nurtured over the years by thoughtful leaders who had the best interests of the future of Texas in mind. It is on the shoulders of these giants that we stand and carry forward the rich tradition of the Texas Lyceum. Now more than ever, the Lyceum plays a critical role in convening leaders with diverse thoughts and perspectives representing all of Texas and all walks of life. We answer to a calling—civic engagement to make a difference in our communities and across Texas.

As we enter our 40th year of service to Texas, the Lyceum’s history of Leadership for Texas by Texans rings true to the belief that it’s the people of Texas that make Texas special. Since 1980, the Texas Lyceum has been the premier nonprofit, nonpartisan statewide leadership organization that identifies the next generation of Texas leaders and informs them on the most pressing societal issues of our time through open, unabashed, constructive dialogue. Irrespective of political preferences and ideologies, we are able to connect, educate and inspire these committed citizens to help make Texas an even better place to work, live and play for all Texans.

Texas Lyceum Directors and Alumni have served as President of the United States, U.S. Senators and House Members, Ambassadors, Governors, members of the Texas Legislature, and corporate and nonprofit leaders. They represent the very best leaders that have and will continue to move Texas and our country forward, and we owe them a deep debt of gratitude.

It is an honor of a lifetime to serve as the President of this incredible organization, and I am deeply humbled by the trust the Directors have placed in me. In 2019, we invite you to join us as we explore topics including Education & Workforce, how Commerce moves into, across and through Texas, what the new USMCA means for Texas, whether we are taking our democracy for granted, and the natural splendor of Texas. Public policies pertaining to these topics will deeply impact our State for years to come and position Texas to lead at the Bicentennial.

I look forward to serving and seeing you at our meetings this year.

May God Bless You and May God Bless Texas,

Sanjay Ramabhadran 
2019 President
