Several times a month, The Texas Tribune hosts a series of conversations featuring prominent elected officials and other newsmakers at the historic Austin Club in downtown Austin. These in-depth discussions are moderated by the Tribune's CEO and editor-in-chief, Evan Smith. Coffee is served before the conversation begins, allowing time for our attendees to mingle. A question-and-answer session afterward offers a chance for the audience to interact with our honored guests.

Special thanks to our promotional sponsor, Deborah Ingersoll of Legislative Solutions.
