Commerce Club Luncheon Series

The Commerce Club is an educational networking event for transportation professionals. On the 2nd Thursday of every month, meet at Brady's Landing on the Houston Ship Channel to network with other leaders in the Port Community. As industry leaders, elected officials, and the heads of governmental agencies, the Commerce Club's speakers know that you live and work in the Port Region every day, and speak to issues that directly affect your bottom line.
