Houston Annual Gathering
IE US Club May 16, 2012
We would like to invite you to a new gathering for the Houston group, where we will also have the opportunity to have with us MAX OLIVA, Director of Social Impact Management at IE.
We have made a reservation at 7pm at CONVIVIO RESTAURANT http://conviviohouston.com/ at 700 South Durham Drive in Houston, that will provide us with their semiprivate room. They have that day live music (latin jazz) until 8pm and after that we will have plenty of time to listen to MAX, exchange opinions and ideas and do networking.
GUILLERMO has been so kind to invite us to the first round of drinks.
See below an invitation to a public event with MAX that will take place that day in the afternoon in case anyone has special interest in attending.
We would appreciate if you could individually write to Alvaro Ruiz (firstname.lastname@example.org), the coordinator of the group in Houston, to keep a headcount.
