"Dallas has significantly changed over the last 20 years. We've accomplished great things as a city, and as former mayor, I know our achievements and continued growth are due in large part to the passionate leadership of the Dallas Citizens Council. Our city is truly fortunate to have a robust group of business leaders not only strengthening our regional economy, but also making a positive impact on the civic issues that affect every citizen." 
- Ron Kirk, former U.S. Trade Representative and former mayor of Dallas


"The Dallas Citizens Council has worked hard to make this city a great place for people to work and for businesses to grow. You can look at the city skyline and see the economic results of generations of Citizens Council leaders, all committed to the same goal of creating a superior business climate. The Council's hard work is a testament to what can be accomplished when the entrepreneurial spirit of Texas is harnessed."
- Kay Bailey Hutchison, former U.S. Senator

Chairman's Message

Welcome to the Dallas Citizens Council! For more than 77 years, this organization has been part of the fabric of Dallas business and civic life. As early as 1939, The Dallas Morning News called us "the most powerful concentration of business executives ever banded together in Dallas for civic good." Though times have certainly changed, our mission is the same: to harness the collective resources and influence of Dallas' largest businesses in ways that improve the quality of life for all Dallas citizens.
