The Llano Uplift Chapter was
organized as a Texas Centennial Chapter, April 26, 1996.
Our Chapter name was chosen
because the Llano Uplift is a unique geographical and geological area
approximately 70 by 60 miles in size in the Hill Country of Central
Texas. It includes Llano County, western Burnet County, and parts
of surrounding counties. It is one of three areas in Texas with
exposed Precambrian rocks which are over a billion years old. The
Colorado and Llano rivers flow through the Uplift, the smaller Llano
joining the Colorado at Kingsland. Our membership live in both
Llano and Burnet counties.
Regular Chapter meetings are held quarterly in
January, April, July, and October. Chapter meetings are held either the last Friday or the last Saturday. Meeting times
and places are decided by the Chapter Executive Board and announced
through yearbooks, newsletters, newspaper articles, and the Chapter
follows the program at twelve o'clock noon unless otherwise designated.
Each member is responsible for making and paying for luncheon
reservations by the stated deadline. Members and guests who do not
wish to eat lunch are welcome to attend meetings without making luncheon
Non-members wishing to be
invited to a Chapter meeting may contact our
