RESEARCH

Community Indicator Program Produced since 2007, the Community Indicator Program makes quality of place a tangible and measurable issue through ongoing data studies, peer-reviewed reports of the findings, and annual symposia around specific key topics. 2014 marks the launch of www.HoustonIndicators.org.

Scenarios 2040 In 2009, the Center for Houston’s Future embarked upon the largest public-interest business-led regional scenario planning project in the country. More vivid and dynamic than forecasting or visioning, scenarios are stories that describe plausible futures.

03.25.15 - Spring Luncheon
Join us for our 15th annual Future of Leadership Luncheon where we will reveal our Community Indicator on Civic Vitality. This year our luncheon will feature keynote speaker Reverend William A. Lawson and 2015 recipient of the Eugene H. Vaughan Award for Civic Leadership, Barbara Bush. Reverend Lawson is sure to give a stirring keynote address from the unique perspective of civil rights activist, peer of Martin Luther King, and founding pastor of Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church. While Barbara Bush may be best known as the First Lady of former President George H.W. Bush and mother of former President George W. Bush, she is most beloved as the Founder of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy. We are grateful to Chevron for their generous support as Presenting Sponsor for the 7th consecutive year. Luncheon Chairs: Dorothy and Mickey Ables
