Gateway to Local Government Luncheon
The annual Gateway to Local Government Luncheon gives Houston businesses an opportunity to connect with, ask questions and gather information from a variety of government departments at the city, county, state and national levels. Last year we hosted all of the Houston Mayoral candidates in an open forum and we are pleased to welcome Mayor Turner and hear him discuss the state of the city.
The event will take place at the Sheraton Houston Brookhollow Hotel from 11:00 – 1:30 p.m. on July 29. Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner will be the featured speaker at this year’s luncheon which is a one-of-a-kind event. . The representatives of 28 different agencies were represented at the 2015 luncheon. For more information, please go to the Gateway to Government page.
"Freedom to Learn" Education Luncheon Earns A+!
The Chamber had a great "Freedom to Learn" Education Luncheon on May 17th with KPRC Anchor Bill Balleza serving as Master of Ceremonies. The Chamber Community Fund, a 501c3, sponsored this event and through the businesses and individuals who support the future of our community through our educational endeavors, we were able to recognize and reward area school scholars, teachers and graduating students who are entering the military. In addition, the luncheon honored military veterans both past and present with comments by Richard Voorhies, Commander, U.S. Army, Garden Oaks Post 560 of the American Legion. Milton Dearborn of High School Ahead expressed the nation's thanks and appreciation for all service veterans. Cindy Reibenstein, Chair of the Education Committee conducted the recognition and awarding of all the honors.
