Hello [firstname],

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


Give us a piece of your mind. BABC is always looking for new and better ways to provide services and benefits. This is your opportunity to tell us what works, what doesn't and what we can do better. Please take few moments to answer a few questions so we can help you shine in the British American business community.


Please note the new event on the calendar for 18 June. The British Consulate has offered BABC the wonderful opportunity to host a luncheon for Richard Shackleton, First Secretary of Climate Change, Energy and Low Carbon Prosperity at the British Embassy in Mexico, while he visits Houston. Mr. Shackleton will be speaking on the prospects and challenges of Mexico's energy reform and the implications for the oil, power and gas sectors. This event is being sponsored by ABIP CPAs at Le Mistral in the Energy Corridor. Seating is limited. Register now to assure a place. Sponsorship is still available.


When is the last time you updated your BABC online profile or your business directory listing? We'll give you some tips on how to bling up your profile at next week's BABC StARS meeting. You will also have the opportunity to chat with BABC President, Derek Blackwood about your BABC experience as a service provider in the British American business community. Not on the StAR mailing list? E-mail the BABC office to be added to this exclusive mailing list and receive the event password to register. Members only, please.


Next weekend is the rugby match between the USA Eagles and Scotland at the BBVA Compass Stadium. BABC members will be offered some special pricing in the next day or so. Be watching your inbox and our social media outlets! Hope to see you at the match! It should be great craic!
