BoyarMiller Chairman Chris Hanslik Selected for Center for Houston’s Future Business/Civic Leadership Forum

HOUSTON, Texas (August 7, 2011) — BoyarMiller Chairman Chris Hanslik was selected for the Fall 2011 Class of the Center for Houston’s Future Business/Civic Leadership Forum.

The Business/Civic Leadership Forum consists of professionally facilitated off-site workshops, scheduled a month and a half apart; with self-organized, small group “learning journeys” held in between. Many graduates report that the Forums opened doors to significant community service. We are “growing our own” leadership, both for the Center and for many other commissions and nonprofit boards.

The program program engages both proven and emerging leaders in focused discussion of key community issues including education or human capital, quality of life, inclusiveness, and transition to a 21st century economy.

There are over 600 area leaders — 35% of whom are Hispanic, African American or Asian, 30% of whom are women, and 16% of whom live or work outside of Harris County — who are Forum graduates and share an understanding of the issues facing our community.
