The Houston Chapter currently has more than 150 Members. 92% of those members are corporate professionals (not service providers). 45% of our membership has been in Investor Relations for more than 10 years. Our members represent a wide range of industries including, but not limited to, Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Service Industries, Real Estate, Chemicals, Food & Beverage, Biotech, Retail, Utilities & Power and Telecommunications. Cap size of member companies ranges from less than $100M to more than $10B and all of the major exchanges are represented.
Membership in NIRI entitles the investor relations professional to a wide range of services in the areas of educational programs, services and publications. Considered the “graduate school” of investor relations, NIRI provides conferences, publications, and networking for the professional development of its members.
The Houston Chapter supports NIRI’s mission statement by offering monthly professional development opportunities and by being a continual source of information for our members. We believe you will find NIRI and your local Houston chapter to be innovative, educational and fun.
