Barrie Cogburn
2009 Woman of the Year

Barrie Cogburn, a long-time EWTG member and former board member, was named the 2009 EWTG Woman of the Year at EWTG's 23rd Annual Professional Development Conference on November 23, 2009. The award acknowledges Barrie's significant contributions to EWTG, her profession, and her community.

In a packed ballroom of over 900 participants, the announcement came as a video tribute to Barrie's many accomplishments in her work, community, and EWTG. Barrie was presented with an engraved crystal award celebrating her selection. She was received on stage by past EWTG Woman of the Year award recipients and joined by her mother, father and some close friends.

Barrie has served on the EWTG board as Vice-President, Membership Director, and Public Relations Director; she has also been active on many committees throughout the years. She has been an instrumental member on the Nominations Committee, Community Service Committee, Scholarship Committee, and most recently the Executive Director Search Committee assisting the board with a transition to an association management company. She has been an active member of an EWTG Executive Success Team since 2003 and served as her team's facilitator for two years.

Currently employed by the Texas Department of Transportation, Barrie is the Director of the Landscape and Enhancement Section of the Design Division. Barrie graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Landscape Architecture. She is a 2008 graduate of the Leadership Texas program.

In addition to her EWTG participation, Barrie devotes countless hours to the Austin community. She currently serves as committee secretary for Northwest Hills United Methodist Church and is in her third year of a three-year term as a Trustee of the Northwest Hills United Methodist Church. In 2006, she completed 50 hours of training to become a Stephen Minister in her church congregation. She also served in a mentor/big sister relationship to young girls at the Settlement Home in Austin from 1987-1992.

Barrie epitomizes the EWTG values that represent the best of who we are as women and as leaders. In everything she does, she maintains a positive outlook and great sense of humor.
