Austin Young Chamber to honor Casar

Tuesday, January 13, 2015 by Mark Richardson

The Austin Young Chamber of Commerce will honor newly elected City Council Member Gregorio “Greg” Casar with its Inspiring Leader Award. Casar was elected in District 4, and at 25 years old, is the city’s youngest Council member. “Council Member Casar embodies the type of leader we strive to empower,” Executive Director Matt Glazer said. “We are honored to share this day with him and celebrate his leadership.” The Austin Young Chamber of Commerce had 1,200 people take part in its programs last year. Members are involved in volunteerism, arts and culture, and economic development and growth within Austin. AYC says its primary purpose is to identify and engage the next generation of Austin leaders. Casar will receive his award Feb. 6 at the Second Annual State of AYC Luncheon.
