Second Annual CETA Broker Breakfast to Introduce CETA Region, Real Estate Tools

The Woodlands, Texas - The Central East Texas Alliance (CETA) announces the second annual Commercial Real Estate Broker Breakfast on February 21 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Energy Texas, Inc., 10055 Grogans Mill Road, The Woodlands, TX. The event is free for any broker or  professional who works in the commercial real estate industry who does business in the ten-county region that CETA serves, which includes Grimes, Houston, Leon, Liberty, Madison, Montgomery, Polk, San Jacinto, Trinity, and Walker counties. Designed to introduce real estate professionals to cities and towns that make up the CETA region, the breakfast is sponsored by Entergy Texas, Inc. as a part of their regional outreach efforts in the North Houston area. In addition to breakfast and a brief presentation, real estate professionals will also have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on demonstration of the Entergy site-selection tools. Registration is required, and is available online at, or by calling 713-456-9429.

“Commercial brokers do incredibly important work, and they play a vital role in the economic development of a city, town, or county ,” said Stacey Osborne, Owner of the Economic Vitality Corporation and co-founder of CETA. “We do this breakfast every year because it is important that the people working to develop the economies in our area cities and towns are familiar with the commercial real estate professionals doing business in the region, and vice-versa. We appreciate Entergy Texas, Inc. hosting the event and recognizing the importance of that relationship.”

CETA, which recently started its third full fiscal year with two new members, was created in response to a need for regional support for economic development efforts in the largely rural area located along the I-45 corridor between Houston and Dallas. CETA is designed to support the economic and community development efforts of the cities, counties, and economic development organizations in the central east Texas region.

CETA is currently managed by Stacey Osborne, Cheryl Hudec of Hudec Consulting, and Michael Fortunato from the Center for Rural Studies. Membership fees are based on population, and membership is accepted on a semi-annual basis. Sponsorships starting at $250 are available for companies and organizations in the region who wish to participate in CETA’s activities.
