affords members and their guests the opportunity to meet at
monthly dinners held by its Houston chapter.
Meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. with refreshments and informal
conversation. Dinner begins at 7:15 p.m. A comfortable environment is
utilized to enable attendees to become well acquainted with others at
their tables. After introductions, each table discusses a pre-set
technology or entrepreneurial topic among themselves. Attendees are
encouraged to share their own viewpoints and, especially, to share
knowledge gained through their own unique experiences. Later in the
evening, there is an open table format, where attendees may
mingle and meet those seated at other tables.
A reasonably-priced, fixed menu is provided at dinner, and members are
responsible for their own tabs each evening.
Recruiting or solicitations are not allowed at meetings.
This unique discussion format gives members and
their guests an opportunity to truly get to know the viewpoints of
others at their dinner tables, and to provide an opportunity for
meaningful interaction that can lead to lasting friendships and
business relationships. Attendees at dinner meetings are asked to be
familiar with a short reading list of related magazine articles or the
topics within them in order to prepare for the discussion phase of
each monthly meeting. Topics and reading material will be posted to
Additional informal events include social gatherings, strategy
sessions, breakfasts or lunches focused on smaller special interest
groups, and field trips to technology-related facilities.
Members will soon have the privilege of attending Texchange meetings at the
organizations chapters in various cities, and are encouraged to use
Texchange as an opportunity to meet members throughout its various chapters.
