The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce has announced the 2018 Economic Outlook Conference will take place on Friday, February 16, 2018 from 7:30am to 1:00pm at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center.

“The theme for the conference is Resilient Community/ Innovative Future,” says Lupe Cuellar, Director of Government Affairs for The Woodlands Area Chamber of Commerce. “The term ‘Resilient’ was added after facing the impacts of Hurricane Harvey.
