Conference Program - The Rubik’s Cube® of IR
This year's conference, hosted by the Houston and DFW Chapters, promises to deliver Texas-sized networking and high-powered professional development opportunities for IR practitioners at all levels. NIRI members throughout the region are invited to participate in a fun and collaborative program at an ideal setting.

Join us at the JW Marriott in Austin to collaborate and share best practices through a two-day agenda inspired by the six sides of a Rubik’s Cube®.
Investor Relations has evolved over the years and now IR practitioners are often responsible for a number of different functions including corporate communications, financial reporting, treasury, strategic planning, and more. The IR profession is complex and one must carefully move all the pieces into place to be successful.
Get ready to solve The Rubik’s Cube® of IR.
Collaboration and Networking
Wednesday evening we kick off the conference with a Welcome Reception at the JW Marriott in the Brazos Room. This event is always well attended. Catch up with friends and colleagues or make some new ones.

Thursday evening, after a day of speakers, panel discussions and collaboration, we will gather at Malverde at La Condesa, an indoor & outdoor private event space for Dinner & Networking.
