Annual Conference

Thank you to all who attended the 49th Annual Conference in Sugar Land. Make plans to join us as we celebrate 50 years of Keep Texas Beautiful on June 12-14, 2017 in San Antonio!

Our goals for the annual conference are three-fold:

  • we want to celebrate and recognize the achievements of youth and community leaders (of all ages), civic groups, businesses and governments;
  • offer an array of educational sessions that relay pertinent, innovative approaches to community beautification, waste reduction and litter prevention to those looking to improve their surroundings;
  • and provide unparalleled networking opportunities and exciting presentations from knowledgeable experts and those with a passion for the environment.
