  Featured Presenter: David Regenbaum
  Entrepreneur in Residence at the HCC NW Center     
  for Entrepreneurship, V.P. HCC Foundation,
  Faculty & Mentor for 10,000 Small Businesses,
  Entrepreneurial Curriculum Developer & Advocate.
  David Regenbaum was Owner and Operator of     
  Association Management, Inc. (AMI) from 1979-2010.
  AMI achieved remarkable growth and prestige under
  his leadership for over 36 years, resulting in AMI becoming the 
  leading community association management firm in Texas,
  managing over 300 communities consisting of over 100,000 homes and commercial units. Many of his innovative management philosophies and practices have become industry standards.  In 2010, he sold AMI to FirstService Residential Houston, the largest community association management company in America.  Regenbaum then served as President of FirstService Residential Houston for the next four years, before “retiring.”  Much to our benefit, David’s altruistic encore career is dedicated to empowering Houston’s startup and existing small business owners and to instilling entrepreneurial skills in the greater Houston area workforce through Houston Community College!
