Partner Forum

Our Partner Forum will be held at The Gathering Hall at Herff Farm, located at 33 Herff Rd.  The day will provide opportunities to connect with your peers and build skills to help bring investment and jobs to your community.

We have a full line of up excellent speakers for this year’s Partner Palooza.  You don’t want to miss this opportunity to learn from the experts and engage with your fellow economic developers across the state.

  • Using Real Estate to Generate Income

  • Effectively Working with State Agencies – Robert Wood, Former Assistant Deputy Comptroller for Operations Support, Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts
  • Harnessing the Power of Videos for Workforce Development – Bryan Daniel, Chairmen at Texas Workforce Commission
  • Building an Effective Relationship with Your City Manager
  • And more…

We encourage you to invite your board members, mayors, and community champions (and, of course, your significant others!) Partners receive two registrations.  Non-partners and additional registrations will be $50.00.


You’ll hear from industry veterans, market experts, and those working daily to help economic developers accomplish their mission.

The Host City and Travel

This year’s Partner Palooza will be in Boerne, Texas. Boerne (pronounced “Bernie”) sits in the Texas Hill Country just a few minutes north of San Antonio, off Interstate 10. Boerne embodies the small-town spirit and is the perfect destination for those searching for nostalgic joy.

Boerne has something for everyone. For the Foodies and the Shoppers, you won’t want to miss the Hill Country Mile, which includes antique shops, specialty stores, and restaurants. If outdoor adventure is more your style, don’t miss the trails, Boerne City Lake Park, or the Cave Without A Name.

We can’t wait to see you in Boerne!


Boerne is a short 30-minute drive from San Antonio and two hours from Austin. If you will be flying and would be interested in a shuttle, please email
