About the Houston, TX Chapter

The Houston chapter is chaired by Andrew Jowett and meets on the 2nd Tuesday of every month between 6-8pm in the Galleria area (at the Marriott hotel, 1750 West Loop South).

The purpose of the monthly meeting is to
1) Network with other members
2) Allow members to practice their ‘Elevator’ speech in a friendly environment
3) Provide contacts and ideas for further networking
4) Ensure that new members understand the resources available for jobseekers in the Houston area (e.g faith-based church ministries, chapter and SIG meetings).

The Houston chapter currently has over 1,500 members.

All members and prospective members are welcome!

The Woodlands chapter (see separate chapter page) meets every 4th Wednesday of the month between 7.15am-9am at One Hughes Landing Conference Center, 1800 Hughes Landing, The Woodlands, TX 77380. The co-chairs of the chapter are Bryan Valencia and Jim Anderson.
