What is the Chamber of Commerce?

Your Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary organization of citizens who are investing their time and money in a community development program – working together to improve the economic, civic, and cultural fortitude of the region, community or area.

Any citizen who is interested in helping to develop the community is eligible to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce. The direct benefit is a stronger local

Economy; more businesses and more jobs with higher salaries and better fringe benefits. The indirect benefits are more public programs, better schools and less crime.

The work of the Chamber is financed by the investments of its members. The dues structure is designed to permit even the smallest business, or individual, to be a member.

The Chamber of Commerce is guided by a Board of Directors, chamber members who are business leaders in the area served.

Why should I be a member of my Chamber of Commerce?

Because the Chamber of Commerce carries the reputation of being a leader of business integrity in my community, and my affiliation lends my business credibility.

Because my Chamber of Commerce has a voice in the legislation that is passed at our state capitol. That legislation directly affects how I am able to conduct business in Texas. I want to have my influence over the legislation that my Chamber endorses.

Because the Chamber of Commerce requires financial support in order to perform its job of increasing the economic prosperity in my area, which it serves.

Because the Chamber of Commerce unifies the public spirit of my community and directs it into useful and constructive channels that are not limited to business.
