The Texas Lyceum is proud to be the only non-profit, non-partisan, statewide leadership organization focused on identifying the state’s next generation of leaders and providing a forum for civil discourse on important policy issues facing our state.

In these difficult times, our work and efforts are more important than ever. The challenges of the global pandemic have forced us to adapt and pivot in order to continue convening the important conversations for which The Texas Lyceum is known. As the pandemic set in, we mobilized to continue to virtually convene conversations around the important issues facing the state. We hosted 18 webinars tackling topics related to the pandemic and the important topic of racial justice. We also hosted a series of events to virtually meet the Class of 2020, and we successfully held our first all-virtual Lyceum conference in September. We are proud of our accomplishments in 2020 and will build upon them as we look to 2021. We will remain flexible and are committed to helping lead civil discourse on topics important to our great state.

We invite you to join us in 2021 as an annual sponsor as we consider the future of Texas through the lens of our new reality. Our 2021 quarterly conferences will tackle several topics directly related to our new reality. In addition to our conferences, we will also produce our nationally recognized Texas Lyceum Poll, a non-partisan public opinion poll on the issues facing Texas, and through the Texas Lyceum Fellowship Program, we will continue informing the public discourse with data-driven analysis on the most pressing policy issues impacting our state.

Our 2021 conferences will cover these timely and relevant topics:

  • Public Conference - The Texas Economy: Wrecked, in Reckoning or Recovery Amidst COVID-19? | Austin | Jan. 27 – 29
    Chairs: Tam Hawkins (Austin) & Crayton Webb (Ft. Worth)
  • The Opportunities and Obstacles of Aging: From Policy to Personal | Dallas | April 29 – May 1

Your annual sponsorship allows the Lyceum to continue its mission of identifying the next generation of leaders, and fostering dialogue and debate on issues that matter. It also provides you a forum for participating in timely and relevant policy discussions, as well as access to dynamic and diverse state leaders across the public and the private sector.

We look forward to speaking with you to answer your questions and provide more information. Please feel free to contact Darcie Durham, VP of Sponsorship at [email protected] to discuss how you can support our efforts.
