As a woman in the trades who writes for women in the trades, I can’t overemphasize the importance of finding your community. I researched organizations that promote the construction sector, and by extension, my business, and then began to participate in meaningful ways!

Danielle Wright, Vice Chair of the Katy Area Economic Development Council, Paul Kurt, Chairman of the Board, and Angie Thomason, President.

In this week’s Development with Danielle©, I’m excited to share photos from the Katy Area Economic Outlook Summit. On Friday, June 16th, Katy area leaders gathered to take a look at past accomplishments and forecast the future.

In previous blogs, I’ve mentioned the Katy Area Economic Development Council (KAEDC). I joined to serve the Katy community, and I’m so glad I did. I now sit on the board as Vice Chair and am plugged into the recruitment, retainment, and expansion of new high-quality, high-impact companies, jobs, and talent along the Energy Corridor.

Governor Rick Perry

As a commercial general contractor, it was an honor to sponsor this event. I enjoyed watching the guest speakers, including former Governor of Texas Rick Perry, Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar, and State Representative Mike Schofield.
