Recognizing In-House Leadership & Excellence

In 2006, the Forum initiated the Magna Stella® Awards program to recognize in-house excellence in Texas corporations, organizations and government agencies. The name “Magna Stella” means great, or magnificent star. Stella winners are shining examples of the type of leadership the Forum strives to exemplify in its membership.

Our 2021 winners will receive their awards and 2020 winners will be recognized as a group at the Magna Stella Awards Dinner on Thursday, November 18, 2021. The dinner will be held in conjunction with the Forum’s 23rd Annual Conference at the Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas. Reserve your dinner table or individual tickets today!
