The event is hosted at a venue that highlights the subject and allows for more than 100 attendees. Committee: Select a topic, coordinate speakers and plan the event.

A unique, members-only event that focuses on educating Young Guns on current real estate development in the Dallas Area. The event begins with an overview of an active development, generally in the form of a presentation by the developer, followed by a construction site tour, and concluding with networking at a venue near the tour site. About Town is an excellent way to preview local development while networking with fellow Young Guns.
