About the Economic Alliance Board of Directors
The Economic Alliance Houston Port Region is managed by a seven-member Executive Board whose members are drawn from a mix of the public, private, and education sectors. Executive Board members serve staggered three-year terms with the option to renew. One must be an investor in the Economic Alliance at the Partner Level and demonstrate a commitment to the mission of the organization in order to be selected for Executive Board membership. The Executive Board is responsible for approval of the fiduciary operations of the Economic Alliance as well as major mission or administrative policy directives.
In addition to the Executive Board, the Economic Alliance hosts a member-based, non-voting Elected Board that consists of members invested at the Corporate Level or higher who demonstrate commitment to the mission of the organization through Task Force involvement and other areas. The Executive Board has between 30 and 35 members each year, and members serve in staggered three-year terms.
