The 30th Annual Houston Economic Forecast will be held Thursday January 3, 2012 from 7:20am to 9:30am at H.E.S.S. Club located at 5430 Westheimer Rd, Houston, TX 77056 . Houston City Controller, Ron Green and SCA Director of Research, Dean Kring will be among the featured speakers at this prestigious event.

Green. “It’s especially true for cities with significant growth—like Houston—with increased traffic and the needs that arise with over 25,000 new single family homes annually.”

The election and the year 2012 are over. Houston is currently sitting on the world map as an economic power house for innovation in infrastructure modernization, technology development, alternate energy development and deployment. Houston is leading the country in new home sales and business start-ups. Our 2% growth can be attributed to strong city leadership and fiscal responsibility and accountability. The featured speaker for this event and a seasoned leader, Ronald Green, served three terms as a Member-At-Large on Houston City Council where he also chaired the Budget and Fiscal Affairs Committee. Green holds a Bachelor of Science and Master of Business Administration from the University of Houston and a Juris Doctor from Texas Southern University’s Thurgood Marshall School of Law; he is also a licensed real estate broker. In his first year as Controller, Green has emphasized aggressive and focused audits of City departments and enterprises, refinancing of existing debt with more favorable interest rates and working with City departments to identify new and more efficient ways of running City government. Green has been responsible for re-financing several large municipal bond packages in the past two years, saving Houston over $200 million in the next decade without lengthening the indebtedness.

Ron stated in an interview by Bloomberg Business, “Nearly all of America’s cities have aging infrastructure, so there will continue to be a huge need for rebuilding and adding new infrastructure,” continues Green. “It’s especially true for cities with significant growth—like Houston—with increased traffic and the needs that arise with over 25,000 new single family homes annually.” 125,000+ individuals this past year have made Houston their new home. It is similar to the growth we experiences after the 1981 bust. Houston also provides a better and economical quality of life, involving everything from career and educational development to affordable housing option. Green agrees and says “That’s valuable to all concerned because we can provide a ‘real time’ view of our city—how far out of the recession we have come and the positive growth we are experiencing."

Come a join us for this informative event at the HESS club. Find out how our city is growing and network with business and city leaders who are focusing on making Houston a shining beacon of economic and technological growth.

All speakers are invited guests of SCA and may be subject to change.
