Enrichment Committees

There are many fun committees within the Alliance. Some members choose to participate in many while other members enjoy just one special committee. The committees are the best way to connect to others with similar interests.  They are great for networking or seeing a chic flick with your pals. 

Austin Adventures

This group meets on an as-needed basis to boat on Lake Austin, race go-karts, hike Mount Bonnell or anything else that sounds like fun to do with friends.

Chairpersons: Cindy Nelson and Shelly Ozdil

Book Review

Book Review meets about once a month to review current and classic literature. Reading the book is not a prerequisite and all are welcome to attend. Once or twice a year, Book Review has a meeting that includes spouses and concentrates on a book that would be of interest to them. These are evening meetings, so they are also ideal for those that cannot attend during the day when the regular meetings are held. The annual Holiday potluck luncheon is a not-to-be-missed event. The food is spectacular and members bring their favorite book recommendations for the year, it's always quite a list!

Chairpersons: Marina SiFuentes and Suzanne McFarlane

Chic Ladies

Chic Ladies is a group that enjoys lunches, cooking classes and other activities together about once a month. Signing up for the committee ensures that you receive the invitations to the gatherings.  This is a great way for those new and not-so-new to the community to network and meet friends.

Chairperson: Lara Norris


Meet to play or learn this ancient Chinese game.  It's easy to learn and it is fun!  New members welcome!

Chairperson: Kathy Thorstad

Matinee Movies

Gather to take in new movies with Alliance friends.  This committee meets at a theater about once a month to see a movie during the day, sometimes lunch is before or after the show, but is optional. As the Academy Awards approach, the committee attempts to see many of the nominated films in anticipation of the Awards ceremony.

Chairperson: Betty Stuart

Partners in Practice

Do you work in your spouse's office? Wouldn't you like to have a sounding board to discuss all the unique challenges you face? This supportive group meets to share concerns and ideas with other spouses who work in their partner's office. Whether you are new to working in a medical practice or a seasoned veteran, this committee will help you network with others who may be able to share insights on everyday problems and hopefully provide a few well thought out solutions! 

Chairperson: Karen Kim
