The Houston Airport System (HAS) welcomes the opportunity to have an open dialogue with the area communities. In January, the community relations department was hard at work with our neighbors in the community.

Working with the Department of DON

As we approach the New Year our partnership with the Department of Neighborhoods is vital to our continued outreach.

With the assistance of Liaisons Maria Bolanos, Anita Ivery, Carl Davis and Gwendolyn Condoleo we are working together to learn and address the needs of our neighbors.

One of the most important relations that we at HAS have continued to fostered in the surrounding community is to maintain relations and to enhance inclusiveness and diversity.

We plan to provide information and volunteer ambassadors from these communities. Recently, Director Arnold met with Maria Bolanos regarding the East End Collaborative to address community concerns and discuss volunteer opportunities.

USO and Community Leaders

Community Relations Director, Rhonda Arnold and Jarrett Simmons presented an overview of HAS; which included current and upcoming events, improvements and opportunities at each airport.

The Executive Director of USO, Elizabeth Vallette expressed their appreciation of having and continuing relations with USO and our Veterans.

Other community leaders present: Lavonne Cox, Denis DeBakey, John Martinec and Buddy Grantham.

Rio Grande Valley Partnership at Hobby

Community Relations and our Team Members at Hobby Airport welcomed the Rio Grande Valley Partnership, a Regional Chamber of Commerce serving the four county area that is the Rio Grande Valley.

While in Houston the Texas State Legislators where able to network and relax before they continued to the Rio Grande. Special Thanks to Perry Miller, Sam Rea and Cheryl Barber for making their visit one to remember.
