A hands-on learning experience

Leadership Houston is a ten-month journey through Houston's economy, history, and growth plans. Through two overnights and a monthly class day, the program provides exposure to Houston's key industries, including energy, healthcare, education, and government.  

 

A close-knit alumni network

Each Leadership Houston class forms a special bond through a shared experience. Many like to stay involved through board service and class day planning. Alumni include 1,600+ leaders in business and government.
