Rebecca Cowle ’12, Outreach Manager for Texas Central Partners LLC.
ABOUT THE COMPANY
Texas Central is a private company bringing a transformational project to Texas that advances the economy, respects Texan values and keeps our state on track for future growth. This Texas-based private company is employing a market-led approach. Unlike other high-speed rail projects, it is backed by private investors, not public funds. Texas Central is developing a new high-speed passenger rail system that will connect Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston using a proven, world-class technology that will provide a travel time of less than 90 minutes.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Texans will soon have access to a state-of-the-art, high-speed passenger rail system that will move people between two of our state’s economic powerhouses – North Texas and Houston – in less than 90 minutes. Unlike other high-speed rail projects around the country, this landmark project is uniquely Texan in that it is being built using a market-led approach and is being backed by private investors, not public funding. This project respects Texas values, advances the state and local economies, and keeps our state on track for future growth. High-speed rail is one of the most environmentally-friendly forms of transportation technology available, and will help keep the Texas countryside rural.

Aggie Roundtable offers an opportunity for Texas A&M former students to network and share leads on potential prospects/clients. The Roundtable began in the Fall of 1993; and through the guidance of its early directors, has blossomed into untold amounts of revenue for companies led by Aggies.
This group serves two primary missions:
1. Facilitate business networking among Aggies;
2. Help those Ags in transition find new jobs.
Bring plenty of business cards, brochures, and other literature to display on the table at the front of the meeting area designated for that purpose. You will receive the opportunity to tell the group who you are, what you do, and what an ideal client for you might be. Our mission is to facilitate business networking and to help those Ags in transition. So don’t be shy about telling other Aggies how you can help their business, or be helped.
Optional donations of $5.00 per person, per meeting are kindly accepted and greatly appreciated - with net proceeds helping to fund Dallas A&M Club scholarships for selected students from the area who will be attending Texas A&M University.
