Advisory Council

The Advisory Council serves as a platform for alumni and friends of the McCombs School of Business and the University of Texas School of Law to lend their knowledge, resources, and expertise for the benefit of The University of Texas at Austin and the KBH Center for Energy, Law, and Business. The members of the Advisory Council are ambassadors for the KBH Center in their communities, support fundraising objectives, and help identify other Advisory Council members.
