NIRI Houston FAQ

Why should I join NIRI-Houston?

Doctors attend medical school and lawyers attend law school. Since there is not a defined degree plan for Investor Relations, membership to NIRI is key in career development and growth. The local Houston chapter offers monthly programming (including speaker-led luncheons, workshops and conferences) aimed at Investor Relations related topics. Joining the local chapter also provides a great opportunity to access and network with professional peers.
