9:00am-Noon, Hermann Park’s Bayou Parkland, 6530 ½ Almeda Road, Houston, TX 77030

Please join the Houston Chapter and the Hermann Park Conservancy volunteers on the second Saturday of December to help preserve the Coastal Prairie and keep Hermann Park beautiful.

Project Blazing Star is a collaborative effort by community groups to create pocket prairie’s throughout Hermann Park to remind visitors what the area once looked like before development took over. Historically, much of Houston and parts of Hermann Park were covered by vibrant grassland known as the Coastal Prairie. This landscape was dominated by tall-grasses towering up to 8 feet above the ground in fall. As development proceeded and trees were planted, the prairie became an increasingly rare ecosystem with few native prairies left in Harris County and no remaining sites left in Hermann Park – until now! Two pocket prairies have been created in Hermann Park since the inception of Project Blazing Star.

The second Saturday of every month Hermann Park Conservancy volunteers come together to help maintain these important pocket prairies by removing invasive grasses and planting native species. Come join us at Bayou Parkland to help butterflies, birds, rabbits, raccoons, opossum and other park wildlife enjoy this amazing habitat of native plants and preserve some of Houston’s natural history!

Please email the conservancy volunteer coordinator at volunteer@hermannpark.org to RSVP today!

In this interactive presentation, Wendy Nolin of Change Agent Careers will guide you through various techniques employed by professional career coaches to help clients create a comprehensive job search strategy that is effective and repeatable.

Without an effective, actionable job search plan, countless hours can be wasted with little to no results, and further frustration. The more specific the plan, the more progress you can make in a shorter amount of time.

In this presentation you will learn how to:
• Define and identify your target market
• Outline specific steps and when to implement them
• Prepare for and manage schedule slippage

About Wendy Nolin:
Wendy Nolin is the President of Change Agent Careers, a career development and business coaching firm started in 2008. Wendy has nearly 2 decades of career development and management experience working with executives, entrepreneurs, and business owners to take their career to the next level.

After 2 very successful careers lasting a decade each, Wendy reached that point that many of her clients also reach: feeling like she was in the career spin cycle. Waking up each day feeling unfulfilled and lacking the motivation to go to work, but not sure what to do next or where to even start, she just kept spinning her wheels and going nowhere. After working with her own coach, Wendy founded Change Agent Careers, to help people like her who were stuck in the spin cycle find the right career for the right reasons.

Wendy was previously the Interim Director of Talent Management Solutions, and Interim VP of Marketing at a startup talent management software provider, and she has served as General Manager and VP for a career development company. She was responsible for business development, revenue growth, sales & marketing, customer relations, coach training and also carried a full client roster. Prior to career and business coaching, her career spanned sales, coaching, and training leadership roles in the airline industry and luxury retail.

Wendy is a subject matter expert in the career development space, and has spoken at numerous conferences locally and nationally such as HR.com, ExecSense, St. Edward’s CareerConnects, The American Library Association National Conference, The Department of Veterans Affairs, and Executive Women in Texas Government.

Texas Enterprise Speaker Series featuring Clay Johnston, M.D., Ph.D., Dean 

While industries of all kinds are evolving and thriving with the help of new technologies, health care is lagging far behind and awash in missed opportunities. It’s time to focus on creating and nurturing a new kind of healthcare ecosystem that encourages grassroots input, quickly identifies low-hanging fruit, convenes the right partners to maximize effectiveness, and is nimble enough to experiment and scale rapidly. 

In areas such as medical education, population health, informatics and digital health, there’s an incredible opportunity to rethink old models and support creative collaborations that become engines of change – all with a focus on improving health.
