This month’s speaker and topic:
May 1st Monthly Luncheon Program: Mexican Border Programs, featuring Cecil Scroggins, GSA Border Program Manager.
Public/Private Ventures along the Southern Border, and the new Administration’s emphasis on security and trade, are changing the Federal approach to project management in South Texas. At the same time, Mexico’s desire to maintain or increase commercial trade with the USA has exponentially increased the infrastructure project activity south of the border.
Come hear from experts who manage these programs and learn about the infrastructure challenges of these ventures that are so critical to our national interest. Learn about project management activities along the border, what Mexico is doing on their side, and the new administration’s approach to border security while ensuring the free flow of goods and services.
After a short presentation, we’ll open up the floor to your questions. Come prepared to be enlightened and informed on one of the most misunderstood areas of national security.
