    A Note from the Chamber President 

    Thank you for joining us for the 2018 Economic Outlook Conference. Today we heard some impressive statistics on how The Woodlands Township continues to serve our community well, how primary workforce numbers continue to grow and how Montgomery County is a new medical hub. The Woodlands Development Company continues to provide some exciting additions to residential and commercial life and even gave us an update on the twin eagles that have made their home on Lake Woodlands. Our own Congressman Kevin Brady challenged us to discuss Who Gets to Decide what happens to our tax dollars and gave an update on tax reform. 

    Our regional update noted that the Houston region is still the energy capital and the Texas Medical Center is the largest in the world. The Woodlands is an important asset to both the energy and medical world for the future.

    We learned that the components that make the U.S. economy exceptional are infrastructure, education, energy, work ethic and productivity and southeast Texas boasts all of these.  

    The CEO panel shared valuable insight on why The Woodlands Area makes a quality home for company headquarters. The workforce, infrastructure, educational opportunities and quality of life attract a strong and dedicated workforce. The day was completed with an inspiring speech from Jim "Mattress Mack" McIngvale on how resilient Texans proved to be during Hurricane Harvey. 

    I hope you were as proud to be a Texan as I was today. Thank you for joining us.
