Community Relations develops and implements ongoing community outreach programs designed to expand community and business initiatives and cultivate public, private, and community partnerships.
Charged with identifying external resources, monitoring and improving core relations with area chambers of commerce, civic and special interest groups, homeowner associations and economic development agencies, the mission is to support the vision and goals of the Houston Airport System through fostering relationships, promoting awareness, engaging and educating, building support from stakeholders for George Bush Intercontinental, William P. Hobby, and Ellington Airports and positively enhancing the overall impact of the airport system for the greater Houston region.
Community Relations maintains a strong community presence with Chambers of Commerce and Community/Civic Associations pertaining to current issues and proactively addressing the concerns of the community-at-large. In addition to hosting airport-related events, Community Relations supports the numerous communities throughout the greater Houston region by sponsoring and participating in selected industry and aviation related community initiatives. The division's involvement includes staffing exhibits and publicizing events that tie into the airports' activities and help increase awareness of the Houston Airport Systems community outreach and educational programs and services.
