SIOR HOUSTON/GULF COAST CHAPTER HOLDS
In September, the SIOR Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter held
its monthly luncheon featuring speaker Patrick Jankowski
of the Great Houston Partnership. Jankowski addressed the
100 members at the Houston Country Club in Houston, with
an economic update on the Houston economy based on the
effects of lower oil and gas prices. Jankowski advised that
while near-term market outlooks were negative, the Houston economy could add 30,000 new jobs this year. Overall
Jankowski finished on a positive note explaining that the
short-term downturn would not have a major impact on
Houston's economy. The luncheon also installed the new
slate of chapter officers for 2016.
