Members of The Dallas 40 believe it is imperative to learn more about important community issues by “drilling down” into a subject … listening to, learning from and interacting with those who are leading the way. Our speakers, all prominent in their own spheres of influence, address our meetings to educate our members on these issues and to enable them to influence the direction of our community based upon informed choice. By providing entree to circles of business, professional and community leaders, The Dallas 40 affords its members and invited guests the opportunity to engage the community’s best and brightest in a dialogue that makes a difference. The Dallas 40 is a nonpartisan organization, with membership open to men and women of all ages.
