For over 50 years, Texas business and political leaders have gathered in New Braunfels during the annual Texas Legislative Conference. With concerns around COVID-19 and the CDC’s social distancing guidelines still actively in place, the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce made changes to the otherwise large-scale event for the 2020 year.
The 54th Texas Legislative Conference was held in September with the 2020 Texan of the Year Charles Duke honored at a dinner on the evening of September 3, 2020 in the New Braunfels Civic Convention Center.
The difficult, yet responsible decision was made to cancel the in-person component of the Friday conference. Instead, four webinars of the conference panels aired during the second and third week of September for sponsors and ticket holders. Panel discussions included:
- The Role of Science in our Economy
- Future Infrastructure Solutions for Texas
- Census 2020: Future Impacts on Elections & Funding
- Feature Panel: The Future of Space Exploration

The Texas Legislative Conference is a nonpartisan organization of Texas business and political leaders who meet annually in New Braunfels to focus on public policy issues. For decades this event has been an inspiration to hundreds who gather to hear respected individuals offer their insights and to honor those whose impact has changed the face of business and politics in Texas.
