I’m excited to share our 2015 Annual Report with you and all of our advocates, donors, and stakeholders. This year’s report includes stories shared by our graduate speakers at this year’s Celebration of Achievements Luncheon in February, and a few highlights from the past year, including my visit to the White House as part of a delegation representing Austin. I’m also eager to update you on the launch of the Career Expressway, and a prestigious award we received from the Texas Economic Development Council! Read the report: Capital IDEA – 2015 Annual Report.
