The EPIC Leadership Council is a vital part of Hill Country Conservancy’s mission. Each year, members of the EPIC program serve on a Leadership Council to aide in developing the experience activities schedule, lunch-and-learn topic selection, membership retention, and at the end of the year, select which HCC projects in which to invest net revenues raised through the EPIC program and distribute funds to. 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 members receive an inside perspective regarding conservation initiatives regionally both politically and on the ground conservation projects. Each member is required to co-chair a committee to support outreach and events for the EPIC program and HCC in general.
