Austin, Texas – The Texas Association of Mexican American Chambers of Commerce (TAMACC) is proud to announce the recipients of the first annual Women of Distinction Awards.

TAMACC selected 13 outstanding Texas women honored at a luncheon on May 4, 2012 for their accomplishments, contributions to community and professionalism. The 2012 Women of Distinction Awards luncheon was held at the Four Seasons Hotel Ballroom in Austin, Texas.
