Economic Forecast Luncheon

January 24, 2023 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Join the Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce for one of the city’s premier business luncheons of the year, where we’ll bring you the most up-to-date projections on the state of the economy.

Keynote Speaker:
Dr. Stephen Klineberg Ph.D.

Dr. Stephen Klineberg has been shaping local thought on the ongoing trends in Houston for more than forty years. As the director of the annual “Kinder Houston Area Survey” (1982-2022), he has tracked the shifts in economic outlooks, demographic patterns, life experiences, attitudes, and beliefs among successive representative samples of Harris County residents, during four decades of remarkable change. His book exploring the national implications of this research, entitled Prophetic City: Houston on the Cusp of a Changing America, was published in June 2020 by Simon & Schuster. Klineberg is the recipient of twelve major teaching awards at Rice and a much sought after speaker in the Houston community and beyond. He is a graduate of Haverford College, with an MA from the University of Paris and a PhD from Harvard. He and his wife Margaret have lived in Houston since the early 1970s; they have two children and five grandchildren.
