MORE DETAILS: Join Center for Houston’s Future along with co-chairs Marilyn and George DeMontrond and Melissa and Jamey Rootes in honoring civic leadership across the Houston region for the 2017 Future of Leadership Luncheon! We’re delighted this year to announce Dr. Robert Ivany as our keynote speaker. Currently President of the University of St. Thomas, Dr. Ivany came to Houston following a 34-year career in the U.S. Army. The West Point graduate was decorated for valor, served as Army Aide to President Ronald Reagan, and functioned as commandant of the Army War College. Since 2004 he has shaped our future leaders at St. Thomas. Dr Ivany will speak on his experiences with Civility in Leadership and how those lessons may be applied for future success.
The Center’s 14th annual Eugene H. Vaughan Civic Leadership Award will be presented to Harris County Judge and Mrs. Ed Emmett, for their practical, compassionate, innovative problem solving with a broad, future-focused approach to the challenges facing our beloved region. Gwen Emmett has been a powerful advocate for public health, particularly mental health. Judge Emmett has served as a model of pragmatic and effective governance while serving as Harris County’s Chief Executive since 2007.
We are fortunate to have Chevron as Presenting Sponsor again this year. Please join your fellow civic and business leaders to celebrate the future of leadership.
