Awards

Each year, elected officials and business leaders gather to honor those making an impact in north Houston’s economic and environmental climate at the North Houston Association’s annual awards luncheon. NHA presents three awards annually: the Compass Award, the North Star Award, and the Environmental Impact Award. NHA’s fourth award, the Visionary Award, is presented to an individual whose career has made a regional impact in a way that has shaped the region, and has only been bestowed twice in NHA’s history. The Quality Planned Development (QPD) award is also given on an as-earned basis, and details on this category may be found below.

Below you will find a description of each award and the application needed to apply.
