Welcome to the BABC - Houston newsletter of upcoming events, articles,and more from our membership.

BABC Houston is often asked for recommendations for speakers in various fields. We always try to give referrals to our members first, but we don't always know who that person might be within a company. So, as an added benefit to our members, we have created a page on the website to list BABC members who are available for speaking opportunities. This page can be viewed by the general public and we will refer any inquiries to that page.  

If you are interested in being on this list, please send a one pager on your company, speaker's name and a headshot (in jpg or giff), phone number for booking and a list of the topics available. We just put up the first listing on this new page, Ken Harder. His submission is a good guide to making your own. If you have any questions about the list or making a submission, please contact the BABC office at 832.351.3940 or .

As everyone is winding down from the Offshore Technology please remember that the BABC Transatlantic Conference begins 20 May in Atlanta, GA. There is still time to register for this annual event.
