The Central Fort Bend Chamber, Fort Bend Chamber and Fort Bend EDC will present the 2023 Fort Bend County Day in Austin, Texas on Thursday, February 23, 2023. Along with the chambers, business leaders and owners, local elected officials, and citizens will travel to Austin to meet and hear from members of the state legislature as well as key state agencies to discuss the matters that are directly affecting Fort Bend County.
Fort Bend County Day’s mission is to increase the awareness among state legislators, legislative staff and agencies about Fort Bend County as the fastest growing county and largest community in the Houston metropolitan area. We hope to:
- Share needs and issues of particular interest affecting Fort Bend County.
- Educate and incorporate the local citizens regarding the legislative actions which affect the community.
- Establish a positive working relationship with legislators, legislative staff and agency personnel.
The day will include transportation to Austin, sponsored by GFL Environmental, a photograph at the Capitol, recognition from the House and Senate floor, a presentation from Keynote Speaker Glenn Hamer, TAB President, a legislative panel during lunch at The Austin Club sponsored by ABHR and moderated by Trey Lary, a visit with legislators, and an evening cocktail reception at Stephen F. Austin Hotel with Fort Bend County Judge KP George and statewide delegation sponsored by TDECU. This event is sponsored by Memorial Hermann Sugar Land and Southwest Hospitals, Republic Services, and Wharton County Junior College.
