H-GAC created the Brown Bag Series to provide staff and member jurisdictions with a forum for education in market trends, emerging technologies, and key transportation and planning issues facing the industry. Each bi-monthly speaking engagement will give consultant firms, research institutes and other industry experts the opportunity to showcase an expert speaker from their firm for a presentation over lunch.
These meeting are open to all H-GAC member agencies and governments. Unless otherwise noted, all meetings will be held at from 12 P.M. to 1 P.M. at 3555 Timmons Lane, Houston, TX 77027 (Presentations in Conference Room B, 2nd Floor).
If you are interested in presenting a topic, please submit a short biography and recent photograph or representative graphic of the presentation topic in .jpg format. Please contact Francis Rodriguez at Francis.Rodriguez@h-gac.com or 713-993-2437 with inquiries or comments.
