Alumni Association

About the Alumni Association

The objective for the Alumni Association is to connect TBHF scholars and veterans to each other as well as Directors and Legends. Our goal is to continue inspiring alumni members long after they have received their Future Texas Business Legend Award and enable the sharing of wisdom and advice.

As an Alumni Association member, you are part of a legacy of exceptional students, veterans and entrepreneurs.  You are also now part of an exclusive network of business professionals and Legends throughout our state. Members enjoy a series of exclusive benefits, like invitations to our virtual programming and in-person events, including our annual Induction Ceremony.

In an effort to stay connected with our past awardees, the TBHF Scholar & Veteran Award Committee would like to invite you to join the Alumni Association. Membership is only $50 a year and the funds help support our mission and provide funding future award recipients. Joining the alumni association is a powerful way to pay forward your success as a previous awardee and continue growing in your entrepreneurial journey.

* Junior Director

junior director

In 2021 we introduced the Junior Director Program. This in an invitation only membership that is extended to former award recipients who exhibit consistent participation, leadership, and innovation within the organization. These members demonstrate the qualities that would make for a great future Director one day. Junior Directors pay an annual fee of $250 per year and receive additional benefits, including priority event registration and access to Director-only events. If you have questions about the Junior Director membership, please contact Meredith Walker at mwalker@texasbusiness.org.
