Each year, the LeadingAge Texas Awards honor those who are committed to enhancing the field of aging services and who excel in leadership and advocacy. These awards celebrate those who embody our highest aspirations and inspire our admiration, all while making appreciable contributions within and beyond the walls of their communities.

LeadingAge Texas will honor this year's award winners during the Annual Conference & Solutions EXPO in May. Throughout the conference, attendees are invited to join LeadingAge Texas in celebrating these dedicated aging services professionals who provide impactful leadership, innovative programming, and outstanding support for aging Texans and the not-for-profit staff who serve them.

Many thanks to the 2019 Award Winners for placing quality first, delivering excellence in the work you do, and inspiring those around you to do the same!
