Interested in submitting an item to be considered for inclusion in Up the Ladder? There are some general guidelines you need to follow. First, Up the Ladder focuses on new hires and/or promotions for Central Texas-based companies or for positions that will be located in Central Texas. Submissions must also be for positions at the vice presidential level and above; space and staffing constraints prevent inclusion of other positions. We also run some listings of professional honors, if we judge the honor to be a significant one. We don’t note departures, and don’t accept anniversary or retirement notices.
