Under his direction, the District carries out its mission to devise countywide flood damage reduction plans, implement those plans, and maintain the infrastructure.  That mission is executed in the third most populated county in the United States, with a population in excess of 4.5 million, which includes the City of Houston, the nation’s fourth largest city.  The District has jurisdiction over the primary stormwater facilities in the county, which consist of about 1,500 channels, totaling 2,500 miles in length, as well as more than 60 regional stormwater detention basins and a 2.5-square mile wetlands mitigation bank.

    After graduating from Texas A&M University with a Bachelors and Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering, Matt successfully practiced engineering as a consultant in the private industry before joining the Harris County Flood Control District in September 2015. Matt has spent his entire professional career working on drainage projects primarily in the Houston Metropolitan area.

    SpeakerVince Ryan, Harris County Attorney

    Vince Ryan was elected to a four-year term as the Harris County Attorney on November 4, 2008 and re-elected in 2012. He is no stranger to the office, having served as an Assistant Harris County Attorney and First Assistant for former County Attorney Mike Driscoll from 1981 to 1987. 

    In 1987, Vince, with the support and help of many grassroots activists, scored an upset to win a seat on the Houston City Council for District C. He was reelected to two more terms.

    Vince was appointed by the President, and later unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate, to serve on the Board of the Panama Canal Commission. This bi-national board oversaw the Canal and its historic transition to Panama on December 31, 1999.

    Following his service on the Panama Canal Commission, Vince was associated with several prominent Houston law firms and continued his community involvement. In the last decade, he has served on various boards and is a founding board member of the Houston Tampico Sister City Association and the Houston Democratic Lawyers Association.

    Born in Houston, Vince was raised by loving parents who instilled within him and his three siblings a sense of service to others. 

    As the Vietnam war raged, a 19-year-old Vince joined ROTC at the University of Houston and upon graduation became an active duty officer in the United States Army, first serving in Europe and then volunteering for service in Vietnam. He was returned to active duty for Operation Just Cause, which ousted the dictator of Panama, in 1990. 

    After his service in Vietnam, Vince left active duty and attended the University of Houston Law School. Soon he became active in the Neartown Association. While practicing law, Vince attended Rice University and received a Master's Degree.

    SpeakerPatrick Jankowski
    TopicGreater Houston Partnership – 2018 Economic Outlook

    Patrick Jankowski is a regional economist and vice president of research at the Greater Houston Partnership. He oversees the research department which provides information gathering, data analysis, database management, economic forecasting and mapping functions for the Partnership's four divisions.

    Prior to working as an economist, Jankowski worked as a business writer for Houston Magazine, Houston City Magazine, Houston Engineer and Houston Business Journal. The fact that three of those four publications are no longer in business is not a reflection on his ability as a writer. 

    Mr. Jankowski is a frequent speaker on business and economic issues and has served as an expert witness in cases regarding local business trends. The fact that three of the four clients he worked for in the past five years are no longer in business is not a reflection on his ability as an economist. 

    Jankowski is a member of the Texas Economic and Demographic Association, the National Association for the Business Economics, and the Commercial Real Estate Research Forum. Currently, he is president of The Houston Economics Club and is a past board member of the Washington-based Council for Community and Economic Research. The fact that he’s a member of so many research organizations indicates he’s a nerd. 

    Jankowski received his economics degree from the University of Texas at Austin, which makes for interesting family gatherings. His son and eldest daughter graduated from Texas A&M. “I always remind my children, ‘They may get their education from Texas A&M, but it’s paid for by my UT degree.’ His youngest daughter wisely decided to attend Texas State University in San Marcos. 

    Jankowski has worked for the Greater Houston Partnership, and its predecessor, the Houston Chamber of Commerce, for nearly 30 years. That would be a record for most employees. He’s also been married to Olga Jankowski for 30 years, which is a record for most marriages. Both have been wonderful experiences.
