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

This is your last opportunity to register for the BABC Royal Ascot Day at the Races at the Sam Houston Race Park on Saturday, 20 April. We only have a few seats left so hurry, hurry.

The BABC is pleased to partner again this year with the Houston Grampian Association on 4 May for the annual Scottish Breakfast preceding the Offshore Technology Conference. This year's speaker is Ed Rawle, Sr. Analyst with BABC Member Wood Mackenzie.
