District C

Cohen Ambassador Program

The Cohen Ambassador Program (CAP) was created in 2012 to help my team track the ideas and concerns of the over 70 civic associations throughout District C. Each Cohen Ambassador’s role is to act as a point-person between my Council office and their neighborhood. Duties include:

  • Attending their neighborhood’s regular civic club meetings
    • Most of the over 70 neighborhoods throughout District C have an active civic club, which typically meets one evening each month.
  • Relaying community needs to us
    • Whenever issues arise in the neighborhood, whether it be potholes or strong opinions on Council agenda items, we want to hear about it!
  • Sharing important City of Houston news with your neighbors
  • • We send out a weekly e-newsletter, This Week at City Hall, which is the primary source for current City of Houston updates. We ask that CAP members share the weekly news with their neighbors and be a source of knowledge for their community.
  • Attending annual CAP Meetings
    • My team and I bring all our Cohen Ambassadors together for a meeting each year so that everyone has the chance to meet each other and trade ideas on common neighborhood challenges and solutions. Our 2018 CAP Meeting took place in April.

The program is meant to be a non-intrusive yet effective communication system to ensure every community has its voice heard at City Hall. We primarily communicate via email and phone on an as-needed basis, and encourage CAP members to keep in touch with each other throughout the year to provide each other guidance.

To apply to serve as a Cohen Ambassador, please email DistrictC@houstontx.gov with your resume. Please be sure to include your name, home address, and the neighborhood you would like to represent.
