The EPIC Leadership Council is a group of highly invested EPIC members vital to supporting Hill Country Conservancy’s mission. Each year, the EPIC leadership council develops the EPIC program activities schedule, selects topics for educational happy hours, manages membership recruitment and retention, and works with Hill Country Conservancy staff to select the projects in which to invest net revenue from the EPIC program.

Hill Country Conservancy has learned an important lesson since the start of the EPIC program: young professionals will become more engaged in the HCC mission, and stay engaged for a longer amount of time, when they are able to see tangible and measurable results from their personal philanthropy. The Leadership Council is invited to develop a deeper understanding of regional conservation initiatives.

Each Leadership Council member is required to attend monthly meetings and serve on a committee to support outreach and events for the EPIC program and Hill Country Conservancy.

Participation on the Leadership Council is also highly rewarding, and council members are recognized as valuable leaders in the Austin community. If a position on the council sounds appealing, we encourage you to apply today!
