Texas Leadership Hall of Fame.
One of our important annual events in Texas is the Texas Leadership Forum (TLF). It takes place every January at the State Capitol in Austin. The TLF unites future leaders of Texas with established Texas leaders and legislators, all focused on pressing issues, legislative bills, and current priorities. At each TLF, the John Ben Shepperd Public Leadership Institute awards an Outstanding Texas Leader (OTL), Outstanding Local Leader (OLL), as well as a Shepperd Pathfinder and a Shepperd Trailblazer. The OTL and OLL award recipients are also inducted into the Texas Leadership Hall of Fame.
